Back in 2007, long before we ever thought of taking up photography, hubby and I decided to go on a bargain Eurostar day trip to Paris.. We went in August, expecting sunshine.. but what we got was grey skies and low temperatures…
Anyway that didn’t spoil our trip, and we took with us my old Samsung Digimax 420 point and shoot camera..
One of the photos I took was of the Eiffel Tower…
As much as I like the above photo, I thought I would play around with textures again.. I told you there would be no stopping me..
So off I went to Public Domain Textures and downloaded these two textures:
I then converted them to grayscale
On the above texture I used a Soft Light Layer with the opacity set to 56% and with a layer mask, I removed the texture from the Eiffel Tower
On the above texture I again used a Soft Light Layer with the opacity set to 47% and again I removed the texture from the Eiffel Tower using a layer mask.
Finally when I was happy I merged the all the layers and I ended up with this result.
You don’t have to have to use one texture at all.. you can combine the textures and their strengths to create the desired effect.
Again many thanks to Public Domain Textures, for their excellent site and providing the textures..
