Provencal Fountain

mouse-over for before view.

Whilst picking up my first two swarms of honeybees in the Provencal town of Bollene I spied this typical French village fountain, I quickly took this picture and dismissed it as I thought I could never use it as it was too cluttered.

Only after we released our Provencal texture pack did I look again and started playing with it.  I chose one of our last years Nik Fly Pastel presets which blurred the edges, pulling it all together beautifully.

I then tried a very grungy zinc based texture from the Provencal pack and it worked perfectly. After removing a couple of edge distractions I could also have removed the ‘No Drinking’ signs but decided to leave it there. Finally, I upped the contrast and eh-voila, a refreshing new look from Fly!

Finally, there is still time for you lucky readers to use our ‘Nice’ code to obtain your 5 dollar discount from our brand new Provencal textures pack, but hurry as this limited time offer finishes on Sunday 16th June! 🙂
