I spent a quiet weekend at the computer exploring the cache of old photos on the hard drive, and working with textures. There is a lot to learn when overlaying images with textures, and using multiple images together.
I still haven’t decided if this image is a complete success, but I am happy with the outcome for now, as a stage in learning. I am sure that as I work my way through the various lessons and ideas I will develop new skills.
I am curious, as the pony at the fence, to see where this might take my photography.
For those who are interested in using textured layers for developing images I would recommend Kim Klassen, who has a number of wonderful textures and on-line classes on using those textures.
