This guy looked nice but a little plain, all by himself, and I liked his warm colour. I decided to try giving him a little more interest with a few additional layers, instead of converting him to monochrome.

Used two textures of mine and photoshop Scratch Grunge brushes from for additional vignetting.

    Excellent PP! You gave to that image softness. Beautiful result!

  • Thank you Carole! There was softness before PP, but in a much too smoth and bland way. Now there is softness with character! LOL!

    Tres belle texture pour cette photo Johanne…

  • Merci Sylvain! J’aimais bien la teinte caramel de l’original, mais c’était un peu trop ton sur ton à mon goût.

    The warm textures of layer you added were perfect for this amber coat! A really great shot of this horse and it looks terrific framed!
