it looks so realistic! Great job! 
But how long did it take? Must have taken AGES...

Thank you Holly! I use a rather experimental process to blend textures and photos together, in this case by using tonal variations in certain colour ranges to generate custom layer masks. So the resulting image itself took maybe an hour (on top of the time of processing the 2 source images), it's the learning experience in Photoshop and pre-visualizing how colours might interact that have taken a couple years really. Still a lot of trial and error as the masks don't always work out as I imagine, but I like to think I'm learning from my mistakes :)

You can't fool me, this is not photomanipulation, these are experimental plants from your private garden! I hope you don't experiment on humans. omfg :squee: I think I've fainted.

Thanks Eve :heart: It's what I like to call a new hybrid technique that finally bridges the mixers and texture blends, so I'm very excited about it and hope to recreate more =D

Thank you very much :) The original foliage was just green, but still a great park to explore. It's right in the city, but many little sidepaths so that it doesn't feel very crowded.
