The Daily Textures for 03/08/2015
Today is a special day as we have TWO Daily Textures to offer, depending on whether you need a stormy scene or a sunny scene. I created the stormy scene texture and then played with it to change the lighting and tones. I decided I liked it so much, I'd offer it, too. I had photographed the male lion in the shade a couple years ago, and I photographed the female the same day, but she was sitting in the sun. By having these two textures to choose from, I could use the appropriate one for the tone/lighting of each original photo, and I didn't have to struggle with making lighting and color adjustment to the original photos.
