Prague seen from Petrin Lookout Tower (Petrinska Rozhledna), Czech Republic.
More than one year ago, I’ve got fascinated by some overlay works presented in various PS fora. Last year, I found about RB and soon could admire beautiful composite works of e.g. John Edwards here at RB. Inspired by many of those images here at RB or elsewhere, I’ve been planning to put my hands on some overlay work too, but I only got to it in recent days, ultimately inspired by The Wilds Of France by onefourseven (thank you, Mat, both for inspiration and a link to textures!).
This composite is my first result on the theme, composed of my original photograph and three textures from cgtextures.com. Comments and suggestions welcome!
