Today's Daily Texture is more of a painted background than a texture. I designed it to pair with some of my flying eagle photos, and I hope you may find it useful as well. I'm sure you notice in the example image to the left, there is a golden glow of light on the left side of the image. The eagle was backlit by the sun, and of course the mountainous background has a cool blue tone throughout. Here's how I get that golden glow: I use a little module in the Topaz software called "Reflector" and it can be found under the Lens Effects module of the software. Reflector allows you to either choose to add gold or silver light to an area of your image. You can add it to the bottom, top, left or right. Because the eagle was backlit by the sun on the left side, I chose to reflect gold light on the left side of the final image. This makes the golden glow behind him also appear on the mountains, which ties things in better for the final image.
