My Pet Rock: Earth & Car Park Angle 3

This earth background is for the scene when the rock is thrown right around the globe. It took a little while to get the clouds looking right, I used a brush set of clouds in photoshop, applied a spherize distortion filter to them, and smudged and softly erased at them to achieve the right look. The specular ocean highlight was a little finishing touch.

A fairly uninteresting background, of another angle of the car park. Spent longer in photoshop editing the colours and such to make it a bit more interesting; a little chromatic aberration type glow on the upper wall face. I noticed that I effectively end up instagram-filtering all my backgrounds...  but I think I'm doing it a little more subtly now which is good.
