Crepe Myrtles on a Country Road
Canon 5D with EF24-70mm f/2.8L USM lens at 70mm
ISO 100 f/7.1 1/500
Normal tweaks in ACR (Adobe Camera RAW) - clarity, vibrance, increased contrast, etc. Then opened up the image in Photoshop CS5.
I cloned out a telephone pole and lines going across the road and a few dust spots from my dirty sensor.
Next, I added a couple of textures:
Scratchbox 4 (from this Shadowhouse Creations set) - Blend Mode: Color Burn @19% opacity
Texture 168 (from lenabem_anna) - Blend Mode: Linear Burn @20% opacity
Here's what the image looked like before adding the texture:
That's it! Now, go forth and texturize...
