{Texture Tuesday} – the Free & Easy eDition

Just because….

Wow where did that week just go! It is Tuesday again, so I have edited another photo for Kim Klassen’s Texture Tuesday, this week Kim just told us “Your photo must contain at least one layer of any of my textures…that’s it..that’s all.” 🙂

Well what I did was as follows:

Adjusted the white balance in Lightroom 3 to warm the image (increased by 500).
Added a little fill light (5%) in Lightroom 3
Decreased the vibrance (5%) in Lightroom 3
Increased the saturation (18%) in Lightroom 3
Adjusted the Sharpened the image slightly (15%) in Lightroom 3
Transfered to Photoshop Elements 8
Cloned out the dark spot at the top.
kk_plaster squared, multiply @ 50% opacity
Created a Layer mask and reduced the effect of the  texture on the tulips, with the brush opacity at 50%.
Text layer and watermark added.
The pre straight out of camera shot which I was not impressed with at all is here below

I would love to know what you think?

LIVE, LAUGH, LOVE – enjoying and recording the everyday moments of life.

  1. Beautifully done. However, I like the original photo better. I like the way the bright area goes diagonally across the image and really highlights the uppermost flowers.

  2. Love how you processed the image, Karen! It’s beautiful.The original shot is also beautiful, but I am more drawn to the pastel tones of the processed version.
