It's been a while since I made a texture in predominantly gray shades, and I figured with all the gray skies we've been having this spring, a gray texture would come in handy. This one is warmer tones -- but if you prefer cooler tones you can adjust it in your photo software. I found this texture "Gray Day In June" to be extremely useful with this photo of some nesting Ospreys. The background sky was gray and just plain when I took the photo. Those of you who know me know I don't "do plain" very well. :) The plain sky needed some drama and energy to turn this photo into a work of art. I placed the texture on top of the bird photo and set it to overlay at 100%. Then I duplicated the texture layer and placed it on top again, setting it to overlay mode at about 70% to brighten things up more. I masked some of the multiply layer off of the nest and the bridge, as those areas became to dark with the multiply layer. After merging, I did a small brightness adjustment in my photo software to complete the art.
