That's really nice, Frank. And I would indeed call it texture use. You've stacked a couple of images and used brushwork to let the textured image appear in the way you choose in the places you want it to enhance the portrait image.

Probably my lack of understanding terms minniev, I guess the brush work could be considered texture, I just wanted to be clear to everyone that it was not an image that I used for the textured effect.

Not saying I'm right but in my view you made your own texture. Which turned out fine!

Minnie,

Here are early efforts with The Blacksmith's Shop; the original first, then one in Topaz Textures, Peeling Paint with Luminosity, and one in Topaz Textures 1950's print only. Fun stuff.

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 sunset and got rid of colors and ended up with

Days End. A fun exercise, but one that wore me out. (it was good to let go and to not give a hoot!)

I really like the sepia version! Sepia does it’s best work on vintage scenes.
