Today's Daily Texture depicts a lovely ocean scene in a painterly fashion. I paired this texture with this beautiful gull. The gull photo was shot on a gray, cloudy day, so behind him were gray skies. I increased the exposure of his photo a bit to make those skies more on the white side, and to brighten him up a little. Then I placed his photo on top of the texture and set it to multiply mode, which basically made his sky disappear. I then duplicated the texture and placed it on top, setting it to overlay at 100%. This brightened everything up and boosted the color. Some deep fog in my area this morning inspired me to add a little fog over the bottom half of the image. Below, you will find a link to download a white, foggy gradient which you can also use to give your images some fog, if you desire. I lowered the opacity of the fog layer a bit, and then I also masked off the top half of the fog layer to complete this image.
