Kim Klassen's Texture Tuesday Challenge: Warm Sun

altered photo with "warm sun" texture

my original photo

This is a new challenge for me. Kim Klassen creates amazing textures for use in digital art. (See her blog, kimklassencafe.com) This week she has challenged participants to enhance one of our photos with her texture "warm sun" (pictured above). I combined the texture with a photo I took last month of a Riverwalk setting in San Antonio, Texas. I also used Photoshop Elements a little bit to create a more "painted" and textured look. Many of the participants in Kim's challenges are accomplished photographers -- I'm in awe of their talent. Please check out her site and see the beautiful work!

Love San Antonio. My favorite city in Texas. Nice River Walk shot.

I really like the "painted" effect you created as well. Sure makes a big difference to be able to see the original size picture. Good job!
