Dock Surfers

  Perhaps its sacrilege to say but sometimes you’ll have a batch of images that don’t suit textures!  They might already be busy enough or too dark, flash images or like the one above where I just wanted to keep it clean so you can still see the water splashes...

  Firstly we'd like to say a big thank you to Ben Willmore for helping publicise our Flypaper textures on his very informative live podcast last Monday and Tuesday! I've managed to watch around half of the many hours so far, and I have to say after downloading...

We already spoke about three objects being better than two in an image, so I'm pleased to be able to put this maxim to use once again. Here two buoys wouldn't work quite as well as the three buoys! Overall we counted nine buoys. This stormy sea picture was great fun...

retro red boat

Back down from the mountains, on our local French Mediterranean beach the other day. I spied this washed up boat with sea foam in one of our local salt water lakes or 'etangs' in French, which are just behind our sand dunes. To achieve this easy retro look I first...
