{Orange eDition} of Texture Tuesday











Both of today's photos were taken back in May while I was in Grand Cayman at the Queen Elizabeth Botanic Garden.
Above photo was layered with Kim Klassen's 'cracker jack' texture x 3 (color burn 63%, hue 67% & linear burn 68%). then I layered Kim's 'canvas magic' texture @ screen 35%.

The photo to the left was layered with Kim's 'canvas magic' texture @color burn 27%, then Kim's 'cracker jack' texture @ darker color 100%, then again @ multiply 67%. Then I added Pixel Dust Photo Art's 'fleeting memory' texture @ luminosity 26%.














Orange you going to come play along with us at Texture Tuesday?
Have a great week.

I love your orange leaves and flowers -- I think that orange must be my favorite color because I have such a visceral reaction to today's challenge. Were the flowers originally orange or did you alter them in photoshop? I've never seen anything like them... but then I don't often get down to the Cayman Islands :>} Beautiful images!!

Thanks everyone! The leaves/flowers were originally orange. No alteration in the color except to bump up the saturation a bit.
