Today's Daily Texture is "Melody of Nature", and features some glorious gold, silver gray, blue, green and a touch of lavender. I used this texture on "Meeting Of the Minds", pairing it with one of my stock photos of this darling pair of Nubian Goats. First I masked away their background, leaving a little bit of the ground around their feet for grounding purposes. Then I duplicated the texture, placed it on top, and set it to multiply at 50%. I liked the darkness this created, but their faces were a bit too dark, so I masked some of that layer off their faces, brightening them back up. Then I duplicated this layer and placed it on top, setting it to overlay at 100%. I liked what this did with the lighting of the image, but it saturated the color too much. Therefore, I desaturated that layer completely, allowing the layer to create the lighting I wanted, but leave the color tones alone.
