Sorry it’s been such a long time since our last post! We’ve both been busy with more important things like holidays:-) I have spent a lovely 10 days on the tiny Pacific Island of Niue, it’s such a relaxing and laid back kind of place and I’d love to return some day. I took lots of photos but most didn’t do the place justice and most aren’t really suitable for textures so you may not see them here, but if you picture coconut palms,  very clear water, rock pools to snorkel or swim in  and whales that you can see from the shore you’ll get an idea of what Niue is like.

On to the photo, this photo of cosmos flowers was processed before my holiday and uses one of the new Tempest painterly texture Pack . The processing is very simple too but really transforms the photo.

Chaac @ Hard Light 100% I changed the green of this texture to pinkish colour by using a hue/saturation adjustment with the settings: Colorise -Hue 283, Saturation 11, Lightness +23
Copy of background @ Screen 44%
Copy of background @ Screen 100%
Finally I stamped visible by pressing Ctrl +Alt -Shift+E(on a PC) and tweaked the tone slightly using Nik, though you could just use a levels or curves adjustment.

Chaac is from the Tempest Painterly Pack
