Landscape

Software used : Photoshop 7.00 Equipment Used : Wacom A5 Graphic tablet
Time Taken : 2 Hrs 45 Mins Approx

I think the hardest part of this challenge was finding Stock images that match.

Ok the description; I have done so much cutting, blending & merging I have lost track of how I have done a few things but I will do my best.

1. First I cloned out the birdseed feeder & the concrete to the left & dead grass to the right.
2. Added water feature & blended in extra plinth using custom shape tool & distorting the shape then applying a pattern Adjustment layer.
3. Then the fence & adding shadow, done by distorting & changing prospective of the fence image.
4. The shadow for the fence was (if you can follow this) new layer, selection, distorted, filled black, added layer mask& added gradient to layer mask to feather light & dark section of the shadow. Pew that was a mouthful.
5. Next painted the house (it took me all day J) with a Hue & Saturation adjustment layer.
6. Then adding the flowers next to the fence, I still think this looks a bit 2D, the shadow for this was added by adjusting Brightness & Contrast.
7. Next the steeping stones added one by one, each time adjusting the Brightness & Contrast & Hue & Saturation to blend it in.

Then I lost the plot; I think it was mostly tarring up and changing the values to adjust shadows & blending.

A nice stroll down the stepping stones listening to the water, vey relaxing! There is something about having the water around you in one form or another! Good job.

Nicely done. I like the stepping stones and lovely cascading stream, very Zen-like. I just need a Japanese rock garden to complete the theme. I hope that fence doesn’t go too far as you have blocked access to my backyard The grey looks good on the house…thanks for painting it, but where am I going to sit now that you took out my patio (grin). All kidding aside, nice manipulation job.

What a gorgoeus place you've created. And just slightly cheaper than landscaping it, I'd say! Nice job!
