Bifrost: Rainbow Bridge

In Norse mythology Bifrost the Rainbow Bridge connected Midgard (the realm of humankind) with Asgard, the realm of the Gods. This exercise, creating a rainbow in Photoshop and using the Flood plugin on a cold winter sky image is an attempt to illustrate the myth.

    Thanks everyone for your kind comments, this is one of the first fantasy type images I have attempted. It's difficult to illustrate a mythological or fictional scene because everyone has a different idea about what it should look like. Any non realistic characteristics of the image were included purely for effect and feel.
    The background cloud image was chosen for its shape and cold feel.
    The rainbow was created in Freehand and brought into Photoshop as an .eps file, then it had a Gaussian Blur to soften the edges and the Layer Opacity changed to about 50%. Perspective was then added to the rainbow to add drama to the scene.
    The image was flattened and the Flood plug-in was used to create the water reflection.
