Texture Tuesday, Partings eDition

For Kim Klassen's Texture Tuesday. The challenge was to use one layer of her 'partings' texture.d a

I call this one 'don't shed a tear'.

I used two layers of Kim's texture--one at multiply and one at soft light blend mode.

Texture Tuesday--The Not-Necessarily Textured Edition

This week for Kim Klassen's Texture Tuesday, there are no restrictions . . . anything goes. The image can be textured or not, processed or not--any image. But me being who I am and this being called 'Texture Tuesday', I still have to stick with linking up with a textured image.

This photo was taken at Raquette Lake, NY in the late afternoon sunshine this summer (July 5 to be exact). I so want to go back there right now . . . if only I was closer. It's a 13 hour drive, though. We have a place there--a sort of investment property (but how good of an investment, I don't know--more of dream for the future, I suppose). My parents and brother and his wife are going to stay there this weekend for a little getaway. I am a tad envious that I cannot join them but also happy that they can go there for another fun time at Raquette and also happy to share this place I hold so dear with vacationers who choose to rent from us and are always back in touch with news of an enjoyable and peaceful time at our 'camp' in Raquette Lake.
I processed this image in Lightroom with basic adjustments and a preset and then in Photoshop and Radlab. I added three of Kim's textures ('dream-it', 'take heart' and 'the way' at different blend modes and not too heavy).
