Textured Tuesday- The Lake

My photo for Textured Tuesday by Kim Klassen.

I took this photo recently at Lake Noximixon State Park. It was a beatuiful day spent with my Honey.

I wanted to play with Kim's golden texture. I converted my photo to sepia {I love sepia} Then I added Kim's golden texture and set it to multiply with the opacity 47%. I cleaned up the center of the image leaving more texture around the edges. I added another layer of the golden texture, with a soft light effect setting the opacity to about 35%. I think the photo looks old and aged.

I decided to play more and make the photo look like an old 1940s photo. The frame is from Isabella LaFrance Photography

Now I am hopelessly addicted. Even more reasons to take more photos!



  1. Hello MaryAnn, this is my first visit to your blog. Found you through 52 Fleas. Love your photo techniques and how you explained what you did. Nice job. Have a blessed day. Valerie

  2. MaryAnn, I really love what you did with this photo. The frame is great. It could be an old postcard! The composition of the shot is wonderful with the branches draping across it.

  3. Really like the vintage look you created !!!

  4. It's perfect! I love the vintage feel the textures gave, but that frame really topped it off nicely. Great shot with the lake in the background and the beautiful tree in the foreground.

  5. Great photo. Love it with the frame.

  6. I really love the vintage feel you created here - fantastic framing!

  7. What a great job on that photo! Looks like you can just send it off in the mail as a cute old postcard. :)

  8. So glad another "shutter bug" has joined the ranks of those addicted to textures! Great job on the lake shot. The sepia and texture work perfectly. Thanks for stopping by my blog too. Please come again.

  9. I love the edit with text.. And I'm usually not a text fan! Looks great!

  10. Looks beautiful! I like how you added "greeting from the lake" for the postcard feel :)

  11. I love what you did with the pictures. It looks indeed like a very old photograph now. It's so amazing what you can do with textures. I have to get into that one day.

  12. Lovely picture, Mary Ann !
    I like the sepia and the framing, it looks very vintage !
