11. Press Ctrl+T and then right-click in the document window. Select Distort from the context menu. Drag the transform handles around to distort the shadow and separate them from the tree itself, as shown in Figure 6.36. Click the Commit button on the Options bar or press Enter when you are satisfied with the shadow form.

12. A more subtle way of illustrating entourage is to show only shadows. You might prefer this technique if you feel that the entourage diverts too much attention from the structure. Duplicate the existing tree (mirroring and distorting the new layer to make the copy seem different), and apply a Drop Shadow effect, as I described in Chapter 4. Then remove the tree itself and erase the shadow pixels that extend beyond the building.
