The challenge this week set by Nancy Merrill is called Texture. And for my image into her challenge, I have selected a photograph taken from the pier at Llandudno in Wales.
There is texture, in the clouds, the mountains, trees and even the sea ripples have a texture to them. I wanted to take this image a little further and used a Plug-in from Topaz Labs, called Impression (which is no longer supported – but I’m pleased it still works OK with Lightroom and Photoshop), where texture could be seen through brush strokes.
I love both images, but I am being drawn to the impressionistic version.
