An Eternal Summer – before&after (87/365)

Curiosity killed the cat :)
progression
Scenery created using my own stock images of grass/landscape. Sometimes I’ll use the same base image for multiple compositions, but of course I always crop & edit according to the scene I envision. For this particular set up I played with the color balance, and hue & saturation to make the grass look like sand, then I added a base blue sky using the brush tool to actually paint it on. I also played with the perspective (filter > distort > lens correction) to give the horizon a slight curve, blurring the horizon line so as not to have any sharp edges.

mountains
Google search ” white sand mountains” – blended with the screen mode in PSCS3 & used to create a distant horizon.
sandtexture
Google search “sand texture” – blended with the screen mode in PSCS3 & used to create leading lines.
