This was a fairly easy job, but I thought that due to the fact that the source image is quite difficult, the easiest way was to use the pattern on the wood.
So I did a selection of that pattern and put it on top of the Parthenon columns. Changed blending mode to hard light and then duplicated layer, desaturated and changed blending mode again to multiply, also lowered opacity to get more natural shadows.
Masked the pattern, distorted and warped it to better match columns shape.
Added gradient layers for coloring, and light beams (gaussian blur and lowered opacity). (5 years and 2993 days ago)
