Morning Deer

I started off following this tutorial:


There are some differences compared to the tutorial, first I chose a different image of a woodland path; I wanted you to feel like you are walking through the woods. The tutorial has an image of a deer that you place in the scene. I wanted my deer to be more sneaky (as deers are), almost hiding in the bushes and trees.


I created a similar image containing snow which in hindsight feel is too much for the image and requires a more subtle approach. Finishing touches include an Iris Blur and then using Google Nik Software Analog Pro 2 (Vintage Camera preset) to add some light leaks and alter the tones. It gives the image a more magical approach (well one hopes).
