For this image I used CS5 and two main features, the Split toning and the Puppet warp.

Split toning is used when you want one color for the bright parts and another for the dark parts. Here I used blue color for the bright and a darker green for the grass.

Puppet warp was used to change the form of the image. As I´m working on to improve my skills in CS5 I tried to make a book shape from the image. Puppet warp gives you a lot of points where you can deform the image. Quite tricky but fun. Don´t think I will hang it on my wall. But I like it.

Finished with a black layer below the image to create the frame.

  1. Nydelig eng :)
    Ha en fin dag.

  2. because nearly everyone knows already my Blumenwiese, I will show you all my STRANDPARTY today. See you later!
    Herzlich Pippa,
    who is in joy, that this forum exists!

  3. The split toning is beautiful,and I love the book effect!

  4. I may, someday, have to move up to the CS5 ... I can see it offers many challenges that I don't get on elements. I love the way your mind thinks. I could see the book of nature in the original and I often look at nature as the reading of a book. In fact, we joke that Izzi, when she has her nose to the ground, is reading a doggy newspaper. The smells the vision all of it ... if more of us would read nature, maybe it wouldn't be in so much difficulty. Anyway, I ramble ... I love the blueness and the idea of this wonderful book. Very creative, Monica ...

  9. I am amazed you saw the book in the meadow - wow. And then you created it.
    Split toning is one of my favorites and you are right, puppet warp is quite tricky.
    Have a great weekend!
