Texture Tuesday - Sunny and Old Fashioned

The hot spell we endured enjoyed last week caused many new flowers to burst into bloom, including this sunny columbine. I shot this at work, as a couple of the employees took to filling up some flower beds with an assortment of perennials a few years ago and we now enjoy the fruits of their labor.

Daydreaming

I converted this to sepia and then added a texture from Kim Klassen.
Old Fashioned

I erased some of the texture from the center of the flower by applying a white layer mask (from Coffeeshop - Layer Mask for PSE) and erasing by applying a soft grey brush to the layer mask.

love how the wonderful shape stands out in the second image when the strong yellow stops grabbing all attention

I must admit I too much prefer the 'vintage' sepia image than the original. Beautiful shot though - and gorgeous use of textures!
