Recently, I've been playing with creating arrangements of panels I create in Photoshop, then applying one of my artistic images to each panel, or using one image and applying different parts of it to individual panels, as I did here.
How I did it:
First, I created my 2 panels in Photoshop. They started out as rectangles, both the same size, but because the one on the left is "bent back" more than the other, it seems to be smaller. I used a very wide photo with a panoramic view. I chose about 2/3 of it and placed half of it on each panel before using the perspective and scale tools to distort them into a 3-D appearance. I darkened the left section to increase the 3-D effect and added a bit of shading under the panels. Then, I used just the far right part of the right section to enlarge for the background. I desaturated the background and added a golden-yellow overlay. (I did this to mimic the yellow reflections in the river, but also because the city's traditional colors are black and gold.)

I looked online to see what time the sun was supposed to rise. We left early enough to arrive at the Mt. Washington area to take photos of the sunrise over the city and its three rivers.
Besides showing her the sights, it gave me an opportunity to take hundreds of photos myself.
