The Texture Touch


This barn remind me of something out of a Tim Burton film. The barn is completely weather worn and striped of almost all paint. It sits in the middle of empty row after row of beans.  In the distance modern power lines and transformers spread across the horizon. Have you ever seen anything like this setting?

Give it that Texture Touch:
  1. Add heirloom #5 to your images and apply the hue blending mode to this layer
  2. Slip the opacity of this layer to about 35%  to bring out the emerald glow
  3. Add heirloom #1 to the top with the overlay blending mode applied
  4. Set the opacity to 80% for a gorgeous edge burn and wide barn siding lines

  17. This is such a great photo and it goes with the name of your blog so well. When I saw the little linky square my first thought was "reflection". Can you believe that? Your really captured that for me anyway.

  20. Quite desolate, isn't it... but, you're right about the Tim Burton reference, I can see Johnny Depp there beside the place, now!

    Excellent editing & thanks for joining =)
