I started by creating masks for the cowgirls using Calculations then the Pen and Brush tools to finish the masks. I used the Pen tools to cut up the background photo. Building up the composition using free transformation tool. Used the Brush Tool for the 1st class mail image and the rays, grouped, rotated, partly easer and pinlight blended. Dodge and Burned the grasses and fence to blend. Used the Luminance Blending to change the blue sky to orange - Color. Used the Gradient Tool as the finish top layer multi-color gradient with Softlight to pull everything together.
Just want to let everyone know, we're super psyched about the submissions! I'm flying home today (after two days of recording Martini Hours). When I land tonight, I'll get on converting the most recent posts to images so everyone can see who's doing what. Keep the submissions coming. Just a few days left.
This is so cool!!!
