Since so many of you graciously provided feedback on the last experiment I posted, I decided to run another one by you today. Obviously this is a bit of a departure from what I usually post, but it is good to break out of the normal routine every once in a while. Tomorrow will be back to the usual fare.
This is my first attempt to use various textures in Photoshop. Skilled practitioners of this dark art can achieve truly astonishing results. I am offering this for your critique as a beginner's first step. What do you think? Do the textures enhance the shot or detract from it? Is it tacky or nice? Should I have used different textures? Any and all feedback is most welcome, especially the honest kind. It won't hurt my feelings if you tell me this is an image only the person who took it could love :) Thank you in advance!
