It's time for Texture Tuesday again. Today I had the urge to do something different, more extreme and not the way I usually work with texture.
I saw this Great Egret a few weeks ago at the lake. The photo is nothing special, so I decided to alter it completely and make it - well, unrealistic, I guess.
I blended the photo with Kim's texture "golden" (my go-to texture) in vivid light at 100%, masked the bird and removed the texture from it again. Then I darkened the image a bit and did several saturation and hue adjustments until I ended up with this image.
Not my normal way to work with photos... but it was fun!
