Mother Nature

BetterPhoto.com Editor's Pick   Mother Nature
Mother Nature
This image is a combination of 7 individual images. The scenery, including river, snow covered ground and trees are from Yosemite Valley. The columns from The Palace Of Fine Arts in San Francisco. Each of the deers, Mother Nature, and her feather dress are individual images.
This digital imagery started with the b/g of Yosemite Valley. I added the Columns. Then dusted the columns and trees with several layers of snow. The deers were placed, sized, shadows and reflections added. Mother nature went through the most extensive editing; her dess was vibrant red and changed to teal green. I combined several peacock tail feather images to create her dress, including the small colorful feathers of her waist band. Wings, mysitcal stars, shadows and reflection added. I also, applied several texture layers.

Glad it is improving even if slowly. Progress is never instantaneous but takes time and patience. That is why we call the patients. Have a nice week-end Carla
