Today I share the  "before and after". "Alien landscape" was created only in CS5 using color tones, blur and blending. Simple but effective!

Linking up with the following memes. My thanks to the hosts:

Using CS5, NIK collection  and Topaz filters.

Thanks to Stanley Hattman for suggesting BW for this place. Even if it was not that easy. A bit too much texture made it look dirty at first so a bit of "handiwork" was needed.


See more from this place  Fire ruin lens flares in the photo blog.
And also the post before this one on this blog. #Ruined or...."

SOOC original

Today I share the finished piece as well as the SOOC, Straight Out Of Camera. I worked in both Topaz and CS5 photoshop, 3 different filters and blendings. Kind of Mix and Match.
    

When I took the image I had to go down on my knees to get the lens flare right.

This place was burning many years ago and from what I am told nobody was injured.
