Snow Barn

mouse-over for before view.

Up here in the French Jura again! This year the snow was very late, the resort workers were pulling out their hair for the lack of it.
Then only just this weekend it finally arrived heavily enough and has been snowing ever since and now we’re expecting it to continue all week!

This was my first venture up the mountain when I arrived last week, it looks deceptively thick here , but in fact wasn’t deep enough to ski on.
I shot this on our way home as the golden hour sunlight gave us a last burst of its glory before setting behind the mountains.

I hope everybody now knows how much we love Topaz Impression here at Fly central, they have almost ruined me for straight shots, im even shooting with them in mind, their painterly filters were made for fly texturing, and here is another example.
The base before image has already been through Topaz Impression using their ‘watercolour filter’ @ around 50% strength.
I could have left it like this but wasn’t happy about the ‘overspill’ affects above the trees, so I opened the Adobe Texture Panel and started playing with differing texture combos.
The final result with our canvas texture on top, proved to be very popular on Face Book and Flicker, so I’ve written the recipe here for you! ☺

Casanova – Soft Light @ 100% (desaturated)
Caspian– Soft Light @ 100%
Danielli – Overlay @ 45%
Atlantic – Soft Light @ 55%
Burnished Clay – Soft Light @ 100%

Casanonva and Danielli are from the August Painterly, Caspian and Atlantic are from the Paper Painterly and Burnished Clay is from Tex Box 2.
