Sand Story Photo Effect

 
Now we have to tone the picture. It's necessary first to create a new layer, choose the Brush Tool with its Hardness on 0% and paint out those parts which must get a special nuance, choosing several less intensive colors.

Change the layer's type on Overlay and minimize the Opacity till 60%.

On a new layer the picture must be partially colored with a different color, but apply to the color the filter too: Filter - Blur - Gaussian Blur. Change the layer's type on Overlay and minimize the Opacity till 60%.

Merge down all the layers after that (shift+ctrl+e), make a copy of the new layer and change its type on Multiply. Change it s colors too, applying Image - Adjustments - Hue/Saturation (ctrl+u).

Combine all the layers again and make a copy of the got layer (the final one). The copy must be processed with Filter - Artistic - Poster Edge.

Change the layer's type on Soft Light and minimize the Opacity till 50%. Merge down the layers.

If that is necessary we should correct a little the brightness and the contrast, making use of Levels (ctrl+l). In my opinion the picture would look more interesting when rotating it around. That is what I'm intending to do with Edit - Transform - Flip Horizontal. Then apply again the filter (Filter - Sharpen - Sharpen).

Can't you share the core-images with us? I'm looking for a nice picture. But the best is this one. The picture I tried it with came out briliant, just because the tutorial is so. Thanks ^^!

I must say that your work are great! just great! but :) I must allso say that it is almost impossible to follow you...step by step...because you play with so many layers...and one must be really very good in photoshop to even understand and follow your tutorials.... that is sad... You should explain it little bit easier....like to a child!
