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!

Original photograph: May 2008, Canon EOS 300X, Sigma 28-135. Post-processing: retouch, BW conversion, curves, sharpening, sepia, color adjustment, shape cut, filter gallery, overlay by three textures from cgtextures.com with adjusted brightness/contrast/levels/color, color adjustment, blend modes; final file: 24 layers, 5540 × 3693px, approx. 1.5GB, color profile conversion 10min, saving time >5min.

Lenka tries to capture positive emotions. Her work features images highlighting inner and outer beauty of various subjects. She loves finding unique and unexpected perspectives of subjects normally considered as ordinary.
