This entry uses the source and my own photo only. The SBS is brief because the methods were limited mostly to erasers and cloning with some brush work at the end. The soldier layer was divided into two so I could slightly blur the one to the rear. They were then set on Luminosity. (5 years and 2541 days ago)

The large grass in front makes the size proportion look wonky. They look like toy soldiers.

author says:

Thanks for your comments. Mossy, I considered the foreground at an early stage, and, living in the country, I decided there are a large variety of weeds & briers of all sizes and configurations so I left it alone. That being said, after your comment I duplicated the layer & cloned away some of the taller stuff. I then applied a layer mask to the top layer and gave the extreme foreground some blur to give some depth of field. After all, we wouldn't want things all wonky.

Love this! Overall nice work, tho the men on the far left look cut out a bit. But good coloring and blending, especially behind the trees in the distance. Some tedious work done here, pretty believable image! Very nice work, author.
