Commercial Use OK.
Today, I was in the mood for purple. Purple mountains, as a matter of fact. I could just picture one of my eagle photos paired with it, and that's exactly what I made for today's image! The eagle was photographed against a cloudy, white sky, so he was very easy to mask out and place on top of the mountains, which is basically all I did for this example. On the mountain texture layer, I did lighten the left side so it wasn't so harsh against the feathers of the eagle on the left wing. After merging the layers, I did a small brightness adjustment to the final image.
I realize some of you might not like purple as much as I do...so I've given a couple of sample recipes below to show you how you can use this mountain texture/background by changing color tones when working with other textures.
