Oh What the Heck…..Stairway to Heaven

I wanted to call this Stairway to Heaven but
it isn't a stairway…is it? This was taken this

enhance the color of the brick. Last thing I did was
apply two textures in DistressedFX to get the heavy
texture on top and add the darkness around the

All in all I'm happy with how it turned out.

The pollen count has held me hostage this last week so
I haven't ventured out to do much shooting but have been

myself busy inside. I wish I had been able to take this
class when I first taught myself to use PS. I can't say
enough good things about it and would recommend it
to anyone wishing to make digital art.
