The Daily Texture for 10/06/2015
Today's Daily Texture is inspired by some beautiful red leaves I saw as the foliage starts to turn here in Tennessee. I paired it with one of my lovely male Cardinals. First I masked away his background, and then I duplicated the texture and placed it on top, setting it to soft light at only about 50%, as I wanted to keep the colors somewhat soft. After merging everything, I adjusted the overall contrast of the image just a little.
