Playing with Texture – Part III

Yesterday I posted a picture from Bayham Old Abbey.. which I converted to black and white and processed in Lightroom…


Well I decided to add texture to the above photograph… the textures I used were


which when converted into black and white in photoshop created the picture below.. In photoshop I changed the opacity of the layer and masked out the actual ruins so that they were not texturised.


The other texture I used was…


again using the same procedure of transforming the texture to black and white in photoshop and then reducing the layer until I achieved the desired effect.


Finally I decided to compose the final picture with both layers of texture visible.. which created this final photo.


Playing with textures is fun.. and again I want to say thank you to Public Domain Textures for their variety of textures that are available for people to use..

  1. I guess I’m just a plain old vanilla kind of girl. My favorite was the original one at top. What a shame something that lovely is in such ruin. Blessings, Natalie
