The Daily Texture for 02/24/2016
I just knew Today's Daily Texture would be perfect with one of my recent Red Tailed Hawk photos, and it did not disappoint! It made a beautiful background to replace the blown out sky behind this gorgeous creature. I also used the texture on top as two soft light layers, both at 100%, with the 2nd of those being enlarged a bit to place the lighter center area more over the bird's face and brighten him up.
