Now it's time to make the foreground elements. (Fig.39 & 40) I cut out some branches from another images and painted over some leafes and chains -from barontieri brushes- you can find the set on his site under goodies section - he is an outstanding artist! (http://www.barontieri.com/atelier.htm)- (Fig.41), but the brushes were modified a little with color dynamics "on" and the slider for the saturation and hue set between 5-10% to achieve some highlighted/shadowed leafes and also to have a little color variation.

More leafs were added (Fig.42).

I had to go with more leafs on the ground and pillars and also some grass with the same settings to make the scene rich in details. I decided to paint (Fig.43) two red flags to have some strong color spots in the focal point.

Next I imported more plants (Fig.44) and in the same manner as in step2.

I painted the fog/light layer to give it some depth and mood. Next (Fig.45) I duplicated a few times the new imported plants and also used the curves adjustment layer to attenuate the intensity and brightness of the light.

At this stage I made some subtle image adjustments to emphasize the atmosphere (Fig.46) and also added a vignette effect to take out the interest from the corners of the image.

In the same manner as in step2, I added some noise and blur (Fig.47) to the image, but not in the center of the image and also some image adjustments to take out the greens from the building and bring in some more reds (Fig.48).
