Today's Daily Texture is one rich with drama, excitement and light. I used this texture on the photo of a pair of elephants. After placing the elephant photo on top of the texture, I masked away their background, being careful to leave just a hint of the ground their feet were on. Then I darkened the area around their legs and feet, and I also darkened the same bottom area on the texture layer to make sure they were grounded well. I then duplicated the texture layer and placed it on top, setting it to overlay at about 70%. This increased the yellow/gold a bit too much, but I really liked the play of light across the top of the back of the elephant on the left. To tone down the golden color, I decreased the saturation on the top texture layer. I then brought the image into my photo software and brightened it up just a little before finishing.
