Red Barn and Textures

Posted by
Barbara Kile (Ft. Worth, United States) on 11 January 2010 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

I wanted to try my hand at texture on an image other than a flower. This awesome red barn (from W. VA) has 3 textures applied: 2 of my wooden textures and a texture by Pareeerica (http://www.flickr.com/photos/8078381@N03/sets/72157603745560932/)

Since I was in a 'grungy' mood, I used 2 textures at Multiply blending mode and one in the Color Burn blending mode, with selective mask painting and opacity adjustments on all layers .

The textures worked well on this barn image. It is fun to play around with textures, isn't it?-

@Anita: Indeed! We may trash it, may like it - and never know sometimes which way will turn up, but always worth the time to find out! Thanks.

The wood texture works well here. The barn itself is a work of art. I admire the farmer who has painstakenly seen to its upkeep.

Beautiful shot to begin with, and nice work with the textures!!!!

Thanks, everyone - I love barns. I appreciate the comments!

Ed Vatza from Lehigh Valley, PA, United States

Cool! I really like how the light draws you right in to the barn. Don't know if you use Nik software but there is a filter in Color Efex Pro called "Darken/Lighten Center" which does something very similar. I like the effect a lot and use it quite a bit.

20 Jan 2010 10:21am

@Ed Vatza: Thanks, Ed. I do use Nik but in this case of several textures, I ended up just painting off some of the effects. :-) I'll try the Nik filter you mentioned.
