I love sunrise, it is a quiet beautiful time of day. I will admit that in my youth I was more apt to witness the sunrise as a close to a beautiful evening! But now, a little older, I awake to see the sunrise, and it is the beginning of a new day. Today, we headed out to photograph the Roman Bridge, and Salamanca Cathedral, but there was not much of a sunrise, it was cloudy and dark, the streets were wet with rain. This was the best shot of the morning, I decided to give it a textured, painted quality and processed it using one of Kim Klassen’s beautiful textures.
Yesterday was texture Tuesday over at Kim Klassen’s she has offered another beautiful texture, and she wrote about perfectly imperfect, the acceptance of transience and imperfection. So it seems appropriate that her texture would be perfect for the imperfect sunrise that began our day, and the transience of the light. Her texture adds to the rough detail in the bridge, as well as the clouds in the sky. Below is the original image, without the texture layer, for comparison. While each will have your preference, and there is not right or wrong, I am interested what you think of the two images.
