Texture Time

Linking with Kim Klassesn for texture Tuesday.


I left myself a note on my computer desk  "don't forget texture Tuesday".  This week the theme was Back to School and it's my first time linking up.  I dug out an old photo from last fall that seemed to fill the bill.

Back to School

I am must admit, I don't often use textures and really don't have a sense of which one to choose for what image. I just try some or guess. Guessing is okay, isn't it?
For this image I used the texture "golden" and tried to set the bus apart from the scene. I think maybe the bus is too vibrant, but they are kind of vibrant.  Whoops, didn't see that two texture rule....I did use golden at least 2 times.  That counts, I hope.

Soon I'll see these rumbling around the local streets again. Not a problem unless you're behind one and late for an appointment.  As Kim would say....sigh.

Have a great day.

i always guess with the textures. trial and error, that's my way :) this looks great.

I think guessing and trial and error are almost the only way! It's really hard to predict how a texture will interact with the photo, you know? I like this one a lot -- and it's a great subject matter for back to school! : )

I know nothing about textures, but I like the picture. (You know, what people always say about art!)

Yea, it's about that time. The texture gives this image a 'film' feel.

yeah, I agree with Woody. this is a true "autumn" photo, and that's great because I'm so ready for it. the heat and humidity have taken a toll, that's for sure. I just love the look about this photo. whatever you did with the texture, it's subtle and it works. happy day to you Susan.

Perfect photo for this week's challenge. Good job!

I guess all the time... I try multiple edits... experimenting is the fun part of processing an image.
