There's a field north of Appleton, WI, that is usually flooded. There's always an old FarmAll tractor there sitting on high ground keeping watch over the field. This spring, I actually stopped to take a picture. The field was all ice ... I saw a pair of Sand Hill Cranes stop there to rest. They flew away before I could whip out the camera. But it stays in my memory, and through the magic of PhotoShop, I was able to recreate the scene--sort of.
Here's the recipe :
Layer 1 : Background image, desaturated with Picassa's Infrared Filter
Layer 2 : 2LO Junkyard 28 Texture ; Soft Light 100% opacity
with Crane Brushes by Aikensha
Layer 3 : Kim Klassen's Wonderful Magic Texture ; Soft Light 26%
Layer 4 : 2LO Junkyard2 26 Texture ; Soft Light 40%
Some texture brushed off the tractor
Layer 5 : 2LO 3(5) Artist Texture ; Multiply 17%
Layer 6 : Color Fill Frame a la Kim Klassen
Layer 7 : Add Glow with Picassa
Here's the original photo I started with.
