Has a scene from a film delighted you so much that you downloaded a still of it to your computer, opened up Gimp or Photoshop or even just Microsoft Photo Editor and played with it, like you were creating your own painting of this wonderful moment that touched you so much?
If nothing else, it's practice on graphics programs.
Well, it just so happens I'm an insomniac and the scene from "Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows: Part 1" where Harry and Hermione spontaneously dance together for a couple minutes to a Nick Cave song on the radio just moved me like nothing in the previous films ever has.
It's such a wonderful moment.
Anyway, here's the fruit of my wasted time and lost sleep.

And for God's sake, please try this at home.
