Hard Light

Posted by

This one involved an added texture and using the Hard Light blend mode. One should not limit themselves to Soft Light and Overlay when adding textures. As Silly Tuesday reminds us, we need to play.

“You don't make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.”
- Ansel Adams
Boy is this ever true for me.

A wonderful effect at the end of your processing. A spectacular image. I think we don't explore as much as we should. You're doing a first rate job of learning the "ins" and "outs" of various processes.

You are so right - it would be so silly to invest in a decent graphics editor and not bother to explore all of its possibilities.
Picture looks just great!
