How to Create an Unreal Landscape Scene in Photoshop

How to Create an Unreal Landscape Scene in Photoshop
The unreal is more powerful than the real because nothing is as perfect as you can imagine it because it's only intangible ideas, concepts, beliefs, fantasies that last. Stone crumbles, wood rots. People, well, they die. But things as fragile as a thought, a dream, a legend, they can go on and on. In this Photoshop Tutorial, we will learn how to create an unreal scene. First, we added a background, then add a woman and dolphins and blended it together with adjustment layers. Next, added rays brushes and adjustment layers. For the final touch added Camera Raw Filter.
