Old but newly edited

We're headed to the outer banks of NC this weekend to visit a friend. Expect A LOT of pics to come Smile

I loved this photo when I took it in September and am starting to play with textures. I thought this would be a nice one to try out.

What do you think, does it work?

I don't know how I feel about it. I feel like the texture is harsher than it should be for that, if that makes sense. I think it would look better toned down just a bit. But that's a personal preference.

can't wait for the beach pictures!

I would lower the opacity a bit more, the texture seems to be competing with the flower. It's a lovely shot though!

I really like this and, in my own personal tastes, I wouldn't tone down the texture. I like the contrast of the 'grunge' texture to the softness of the bloom. But, again, that's my personal taste.

Looks like you're having fun and I can't wait to see the pics when you return from the beach!

I like it too, but I would tone down the texture as well. I like a light texture, but that's just my opinion! Can't wait to see more soon!

Thanks everyone for your opinions! I liked the harsh texture, but I'll see what it looks like with a lighter texture.

I'm having a great time here at the beach. I've already got some good shots. Will share when I get home Smile
