Today's Daily Texture is filled with hues of vintage gold, blue and greenish-gray. This texture worked well with a landscape scene of a winding road. The scene has a nice composition, but lacked drama and light. The sky in the original photo was totally blown-out white. The horizon line was too faded and washed out looking. So I decided to allow the texture to come through as the sky. I placed the photo on top of the texture and masked away all of the white sky, revealing the texture from underneath. I masked most of the horizon line away as well, allowing just a hint of it showing to indicate it was there. I also masked away some of the image very gently around the edges where I wanted to soften things and bring the colors of the texture into the image.
After masking, I placed a duplicate of the texture on top and set it to soft light at 100%. I masked away just a little of this layer in a few spots. Then I duplicated the texture again, and placed it on top, setting it to hard light at 70% to complete the image.
