Texture Thursday


ginacollage

Okay So for today's Texture Thursday I wanted to show you when you add texture how much more it gives to the photo. As you can see with the before shot it was good but not great. I wanted to have more depth to the photo.
So I first clean it up (contrast levels etc.) then I added 2 or 3 different textures erased them over her face and clothes. I then used the bakery action from coffeshop. This action softens the colors, face etc.
I reduced any noise then sharpened it and was done. I think its much better now don't you?

  7. I like the color on the little cutie pie better in the first one. But, I like the texture of the landscape better in the second one.
