texture tuesday and the 2 for deal returns....

oh my word, it's tuesday again.
it's crazy how fast our time zips away....
especially in the summer.

anyhow, i seem to mention time zipping by quickly ....
way too often....
enough of that....


i have 2 new texture to share....

'broken book'                                                                          'graduation day'

i had to give them a try or 2.....of course.


i met this sweet beauty on saturday.
i couldn't go and actually pet her.... because the ditches are FULL of water.
so we just had to talk from a distance.
what  a sweet girl...
she posed in several places along the fence....a true gift in my day...

here's the scoop on processing this image.

i did a black to white adjustment layer
added a tinge of color back to the image.
added the 'graduation day' texture
then a final levels adjustment....
allowing the darks to pop a little.
that's it.


and then we traveled a little further along the road...
and we stopped to take some more pictures...

i found the loveliest black eyed susans growing in the ditch....

so i had to photograph them of course.

so for this image...
i added a gradient map adjustment layer - black to white set to soft light.
then i added 'graduation day' at multiply 100%
and then a layer of 'broken book' at soft light 100%
i desaturated the broken book texture a little
and finished with a levels adjustment.

okay, i must go to bed....
the mosquitoes are buzzing around my head... i can not take it.... ugh.

it's tuesday at 12:20 am.
and i have the only light on in the house ....
so all the giant mosquitoes that found their way in throughout the day are right here with me....
