Texture Tuesday : Hope in Winter
This lone tree stands in the park near my house. The plain white/gray background needed some dressing up. What better chance to use my new coffee textures?!?
I picked one with the salty stars because they kind of look like snow flakes falling--or blooming trees. What can I say? I love winter!
Photo Processing in PhotoShop Elements :
Layer 2) Kim Klassen's Be Still Texture - Soft Light 100%
Layer 3) Kim Klassen's Hope Filled - Soft Light 100%
Layer 4) Copy Layer 1 - Normal 47%
Layer 5) Hue Saturation Adjustment - to dampen yellows and pinks
Layer 6) My Coffee Texture 4958 - shifted - Soft Light 43%
(This treatment blurred out some of the houses and clutter in the horizon line)
With spring coming and the promise of gorgeous pink and white trees, I couldn't resist playing with some girly colors for a spring version :
For this version, I played with a few filters in Picassa (I know--heresy to the LightRoom crowd.)
Graduated Tint (Pink from the top down)
This one is my favorite of the 2. A little more color, a blush to bring back Spring.
There it is!
