The Daily Texture for 12/29/2014
Today's Texture is "Christmas Flowers in January" and is a mix of red, salmon, yellow, green, and white. It's perfect for your subjects with red, such as the first image shown below "Rooftop Visitor", featuring a male Cardinal. This texture also blends well with salmon pink subjects, such as the Hibiscus flower in "Falling Blossom". For a different effect, you can use the texture as a soft light or overlay layer to a cool photo to warm it up, such as in the image "Bluebird Escape". I originally used the texture "Ice On The Ocean" as the background for the bluebird photo. Yet in my original image, the bird had sun on him. The coolness of the texture blended nice with his feathers, yet it didn't quite make sense due to the sun glow on the bird. I added today's texture as a soft light layer at 50% on top of the image. which gave the overall work a hint of warm color to match the glow of the sun on the bird's feathers and belly, as well as the wooden tree stump.
