Today's Daily Texture "Stormy Seas" features a muted, but rich, color palette of browns, blues and cream and has a horizon line, along with hints of billowing storm clouds in the sky. I used this texture on "Up Against The Storm", which features a bald eagle photo I took yesterday. The sky was gray -- almost white -- in my original image, but that's not how I saw the scene in my mind. While I watched this eagle coming in at a strong angle with the wind ruffling his feathers and tossing him around, I saw a bird fighting an impending storm. By placing him with this texture, what I visualized has now come to pass.
I masked the eagle away from his original bland sky and placed him on this textured background. Then I layered the original texture on top and set it to soft light at around 60% to give the image a little more punch. I very slightly adjusted brightness and contrast of the final image to give it a bit more depth and glow.
