This morning I went out and took a few pictures quickly, without a lot of composing or analysis. It was around 7 am, after I had walked the dogs.

I have been intrigued with Kate's photos at Chronicles of a Country Girl -- she is a good photographer, and has been showing her work with textures.

So, feeling a bit stagnant, I thought I'd try applying some textures after I found an online tutorial at Coffeeshop.

#1 is SOOC converted to jpeg.

# 2 is with a texture applied.

#3 is with texture and PW's soft and faded action.

#4 is with texture and PW's heartland action.

So what did I learn? This is fun, but there's definitely a need for an artist's eye to get these right. I'm not there yet.

Which one do you like?


  1. #2, with the texture applied is my favoite. I like all of them, actually, but #2 rises to the top by a little bit.

  2. They're all so beautiful! I like #1 & #3 if you HAD to force me to choose!

  3. They are all great, but I like #2 the best because it feels very balanced while still having some sharpness to it.

    You are doing great!!!

  4. #2 with #1 a close second.

    Practice! Practice! Practice!

  5. #2!
    they look great, and Fun is the best part, dontcha think?
