How to Create a Breathtaking Bridge Scene in Photoshop
What a joy it is to feel the soft, springy earth under my feet once more, to follow grassy roads that lead to ferny brooks, where I can bathe my fingers in a cataract of rippling notes or to clamber over a stone wall into green fields that tumble and roll and climb in riotous gladness! In this Photoshop tutorial, we learned how to create a surreal scene. First, we created a background, then an Impala and Bridge and finally add some Leaves and finish with Adjustment Layers.
