I've been working on my editing skills and applying textures to some of my photos.  I'll first show you the original and then my edited version.

This was taken during my trip back home to Texas.  We were driving along and I just had to stop and grab this shot.  So my next photo will show my editing and textures.  I was going for an old time photo look with a little grunge to it.

First I added a New Adjustment Layer - using the Hue/Saturation Levels and lowered it to -65.  Then a New Raster layer added         Kim Klassen's textures Just Cause (using Color at 65%) and February Magic (using Dodge at 88%).  I then used my burn tool to darken up some areas and to bring the horse and lone tree out a little more.  As always I copied the original picture to make all my changes.
So what do you think?

Happy Editing!

The textures gave it a 'distressed' look that I like! :)

You're right more of a distressed look than grunge.

Thanks for committing.

Bright blessings,

I cannot decide which one I like better. They are both beautiful.
