Within photoshop, I used several techniques to soften the texture and to create a glowy Ortonesque atmosphere. First, I applied a Gaussian blur and decreased the opacity, in order to soften the edge contrast. Then I applied a vertical motion blur to soften the foliage. Finally, I adjusted the tone.
