then
Shft+Ctrl+N {New Layer}.. Paint bright areas at top of pic with R105, G134, B140 (Mask with Linear Gradient)(Mode = Multiply @ 75% Opacity)
Shft+Ctrl+Alt+E (combine all to new layer)(Mode=Lighten) Hide all mask.. selectively lighten path with mask
New layer... Paint dark path with R105, G134, B140 (Mask with Linear Gradient) (Mode = Lighten @ 32% Opacity)
Shft+Ctrl+Alt+E (combine all to new layer)(Screen @30% Opacity)
Shft+Ctrl+Alt+E (combine all to new layer) Filter>Blur>Motion Blur @ Angle 4, Distance 4... (Mask with Linear Gradient)
Shft+Ctrl+N {New Layer}
