The images I used were not big files to begin with so my only option was to to blur them a bit.
This actually worked out, creating the kind of lonely mood I was going for. I also added some textures and a shadow. (5 years and 1787 days ago)
I've used transform tools (floor, railings) for the end of bridge . The butterfly with Gaussian blur and motion blur at low opacity. The rest is obvious.
Edit2: Butterfly shadow.
As I see it now.Light source is from the left and low, 4 o'clock direction.
Adjustments of position, size, tone, saturation and opacity.It is not easy. (5 years and 2009 days ago)
