Hello, Help with a water effect
Hi guys, I am new here and have some knowledge of how to use Photoshop. I use Adobe Photoshop CS5.
I am creating an image which involves a person laying down next to a pool and tanning. I want this to be a side view of the scene.
Attached is layout. I am confident with the concrete part and the sky. I just need help making the water look real.
Any tips at all on the water would be GREATLY appreciated.
EDIT: Since I am new I can't post a pic of the layout. But I guess I just need to know how to make a side view of water. If you can pleas help me, message me and I could send you a link to the image!

probably a bunch of tutes around if you Google, but here's a real quick and easy one.
- set your colours black and white
- run Render Clouds filter
- Run Sketch -> Chrome, and fiddle w/ the settings to get something you like. this turns the layer B&W anyway, hence the above colour settings.
- Use you Adjustments -> Hhue/Colourise etc to turn it the colour you want, and use Transform etc to stretch/warp as necessary to get an appropriate effect.
