Re: Using Textures To Enhance Photos - Learn & Share - Post Yours!

Matt - that last one is post-card ready! I wanted to play also... with the idea that the definition of texture can be pretty loose, I took many sunset shots and blended them together, and then figured out how to get a selection of a recent dove shot I got - got sick of the ultra saturation from the ...

Re: Beach_Girls

my thought is that the effects you have added look great on the reflections and sand, but are too harsh on the heads and waves. Perhaps use a gradient to let the effects through stronger on the bottom and weaker on top. (and like the girls - I could be all wet!)

I am envious

Re: red winged blackbird

#1 so free and high flying, #4 cool background textures. I like #1 for your reason also Linda Piet, I like the fifth, the male, even though it wasn't there, because he reminds me of my late father-in-law when he took out his teeth.

Re: Portrait Inspirations

stunned.. the ones I liked the least were with the larger smiles. Contemplative frowns and eyes alive - my favorite was the three little girls, the frowning one especially, and the two boys with folds in the shirt fabric. Wonderful work!

Re: red winged blackbird

Lovely. The Redwing was my granddad's favorite bird, so they are mine as well. (Y) I pick favorites all the time and my wife tells me that it is not allowed! Wonderful birds.
