Here's a sample use, starting with a rendered elevation opened in Photoshop.
Choose a sky and ground, and perhaps a tree background if that's appropriate. You can use one of the darker tree images behind your elevation to make the drawing stand out.
To use the trees and foreground images in your presentation do the following (for those not used to working in Photoshop)
1- Open the image in photoshop
2-Click the "Magic Wand" tool and set the tolerance to "22" or some value near it. Check "Anti-alias" and uncheck "Contiguous"
3- Click the tool on an empty area of the image so that the wand selects around the edges of the image. Then, with a right click of the mouse, choose "Select inverse".
4- Copy the selection, then go to the elevation image to paste your selection. Then you can move it around, stretch or shrink it as needed.
Move the elements around however you like in order to get the best compostition.
