The Daily Texture for 12/02/2015
Today's Daily Texture is filled with the glorious colors you'll often find in opal gemstones. I paired it with one of my simple egret photos. The egret was photographed on a cloudy day and the sky was a solid gray, so I didn't have to do any masking away of the background. I simply placed the texture on top and set it to multiply at 100% and just masked a little of that layer off of the bird's whitest feathers. Then I duplicated the texture again and placed it on top, setting it to soft light at 100% to complete this image.
