Another Poppy for Texture Tuesday

Of course there has to be a poppy for this week's free and easy edition of Texture Tuesday!


For this image I used two of Kim Klassen's textures, first "warmgrunge" in soft light at 55%. I masked the poppy and the poppy bud to remove the texture from them again. Then I layered with "kk_appreciate" in soft light at 75% and did a levels adjustment.

There are more and more poppies coming up in my garden beside the California poppies (which you can see as orange dots in this photo). I love all the different shades of light pink (almost white) to a rich dark red. It is beautiful and I find myself grabbing my camera all the time.

Hallo Carola,
grad dachte ich, das ist doch ein deutscher Name? ...und schon sehe ich, dass du aus meinem Land kommst.
Schön, dich hier gefunden zu haben.
Das Mohnfoto ist dir wirklich sehr gelungen, es sieht wunderwunderschön aus, v.a. mit der Textur! Einfach klasse!Werde mich gleich mal über GFC bei dir eintragen und komme gerne ganz oft hier vorbei!
GLG, Brigitte ♥♥♥

Beautiful image. I like poppies of all sorts. The roadsides up the Napa Valley are filled with California Poppies this time of year.
