Texture Tuesday

I took this shot at the Bronx Zoo last year. It is a photo of the front gates that face Fordham Road. I am posting this today for Texture Tuesday's hosted by Kim Klassen who I blogged about last week. Each week I will be posting a textured photo for her challenges. I am excited as it will be such fun! For this weeks challenge you could use any one of her textures that you wanted for your photo. For this one I used the "She Loves You Yeah" texture. It is the one I have been using on all the photos in my last 2 posts. Love it! I thought I would share my before picture so here it is . . .


I used two layers of texture, and altered it with a sepia tone as well. I am loving the vintage look this particular texture gives the photos!

  3. So very, very cool, Cathy, what you are doing with these textures!! I don't have Photoshop Elements, but I do have Photoshop - I wonder if it has all those textures as well. Must check it out!! I love seeing new passions unfold on your blog... Love, Silke

  8. Both are pretty good but the first one has a 19th century pictorialist feel to it.
