Texture Tuesday - Autumn Buds

That title is kind of a lie. I took this photo in spring. But with the texture, it really looks like it was autumn!


Oh yea, there was no theme for KK's Texture Tuesday challenge today. I was really eager to use her autumn burst texture, and I just knew this photo would be perfect. The SOOC version, as well as my ACR clean edit, can be seen here.


Here are my layers:


The autumn burst texture is on soft light blending mode at 87%. The Hue/Saturation layer is a slight desat. The gradient fill is my soft vignette. And the seemingly blank 'layer 1' is actually those little white spots on the left side of the frame. I selected them off the texture, copied into a new layer, pulled it to the top, and added a drop shadow for that 3D effect.
