No matter how many good photos we show off on flickr, there are always more rubbish ones that you’d never show anyone. Behold, one of mine:
It’s boring, it’s flat, it’s from a moving car, has glass reflections and power lines. Ugh. I’m not even sure why it was still in my iPhoto library!*
I decided to challenge myself to rescue that terrible photo with my own free Photoshop textures. Putting my imaginary money where my mouth is, I present the result:
A bit of Photoshop touch up on the power lines and reflections, a considered crop, two textures and some colour tweaking and it’s a completely different photograph. I hope this encourages you to have a play. You can pick up my textures at flickr and deviantArt.
*(Actually, I kept it because it’s from my home state of Indiana and I sometimes feel nostalgic.)
