Here is where I gave more depth to the city and the hills in the background by using the Gaussian Blur Filter and Fill and Adjustment layers. The foliage and the cliffs at the front of the image were created using parts of photos I found on the internet. All I had to do was darken and lighten the appropriate parts (Fig.12).

The painting was almost finished at this point and I thought it would be a good idea to connect the cliffs in the foreground with the beach. I modeled the bridge using the Google SketchUp program, which is good for quickly modeling of simple objects. Minor details were left including the ocean spray and foam near the shore at the bottom of the cliffs. Using a Soft brush in a new layer I also added fog to the foreground and background (Fig.13 - 14).

In order to add a glow effect to the painting I used the simplest method: a new layer was created and filled with black, after which a lens flare effect was added and the layer was changed to screen to give a bit more light. I added some seagulls circling above the water and the painting was finished.
