Ah, I see... When you said "texture" I assumed that the vignette was a part of one of the texture images you used. In my eye, a texture and a vignette are two separate effects. I just assumed...
My bad for not making it clear the first time! Some of the textures I use have vignette effects, and the texture with the vignette was too strong for the image in this case. Then sometimes I create the vignette from the texture with masking (though not with this one). In this case I used one that has a vignette effect, one that added color toning after I converted the photo to monochrome, and one that had a sort of "aged" effect. I may post an alternate version in case everyone hasn't gone to sleep.
I appreciate your taking the time to talk about it!!
