Day 1 - Kim Klassen's 12 Days of Textures

What an exciting idea! Starting today, Kim will be sharing a new texture each day for 12 days over at the Kim Klassen Cafe. Today's beautiful texture is "Lilly". Here I converted the texture to grey scale, inverted it, and applied a layer to my dragonfly shot in Screen Blend mode at 56% opacity for some dreamy musical edges.



Thank you Kim!

Very nice shot of the dragonfly and the subtle use of the texture is perfect.

Awesome photo! Very smart of you to make the changes to the texture to enhance this picture. I love how the texture softened the background making the dragonfly look as though he is about to fly off the page! You've inspired me to try some textures on some of my nature images.
Thank you!
