How a long-exposure rocket launch photo spawns greatness

Photoshop battles are one of my favorite subtopics on Reddit.com and this particular battle really shows the creativity of people on the site.

Reddit's Photoshop battles forums can be amazing, turning one photo into several different things.

Reddit user -WhistleWhileYouLurk recently posted a long-exposure photo of the Soyuz rocket launch, which is headed for the International Space Station. Redditors pounced on it immediately with a ton of cool looking tweaked images. One even created a GIF to show how he/she created a movie poster, which I put at the bottom of the list.

A UFO beaming up a cow? Absolutely.

A giant cinnamon churro? We'll allow it. But a followup post from a different Redditor might be even better:

Goku from Dragon Ball Z is always a good choice.

That's a spaghetti measurement tool. Apparently this rocket trail is equivalent to a dinner for three.

Did I mention Reddit users are creative? Reddit users are creative. I'm suddenly hungry for some reason.
