Thanks Blue and A again. @Blue, I mostly use layers on the pics. usually an ordinary photo of some grass or clouds or abstract art to both add texture and detail and then also to change the hue to get that slight surreal look. Its a lot of experimenting and playing around. I use sometimes a filter near the end to just add a feel, and take the sheen off. Its lots of fun actually. Thanks again. (love the double rainbow.)
@Ahavati. Thanks so much. Its something to consider, there is an online landscape/art magazine I really like, who are asking for submissions but atm my graphics card on my computer cannot handle high resolution, which i will need. I may start a wordpress blog first of all to work out my 'look and feel' etc. Thanks so much again.
This one i used a simple photo layer of grass to add texture and then the same photo as another layer to alter the hue, and then another abstract cloud pic to add some surreal elements.
