In the Bible's Creation narrative in the book of Genesis it says that the Lord God made the grass and trees appear and grow on the third day.
The problem with presenting that visually is this: According to the Bible, God did not make the sun appear until the next day. So, how could I show the new plant life from outdoor still photos (taken in sunlight) when this was said to be happening without sunlight?
Possible solution: Since there was supposed to be some form of "light" at this time (See Genesis 1:3), I used the Vegas bump map effect with spotlight in the upper left hand corner to create a form of digital impressionism to visually depict this. I also added a luma key of moving golden light beams to further enhance the effect. Please let me know if this works for the presentation. I would also be receptive to hearing alternative suggestions. Thanks in advance for the feedback.
