    Hmmm, I didn't see that. This is the third time we've posted similar things. Maybe it's some kind of Jungian synchronicity.

    I love it! I have been playing around with these layering/texture techniques lately too, and am really enjoying the creative avenues it has opened up.

    This one looks like an old time illustration that you'd expect to find in an antique shop in London.

    Oh my. This is very very nice. The texture is really something else. I always love things like this when I see them but have no idea how to pull it off. Lovely stuff here.

    The texture adds a sense of melancholy to the wonderful quality of light that's already there. An outstanding combination.

    It looks very much like an old oil painting. Very effective processing...

    If you're not doing graphics for CD covers/liner notes and book covers, you really should be.

    How do you do this? I'm not very skilled in Photoshop.

    Great use of texture. I was recently reading PhotoLife magazine and they had a feature on this type of work which got me thinking of trying some out. You've added to the inspiration.

    This looks fun - perhaps one should give it a try. Especially if one can get results as good as this.

    I adore the tones, texture and subject; it possesses a nostalgic feeling, reminding me of a Turner painting.

    Very nice! The texturing and vignette really enhance the scene and lighting.

    Cheers.

    This is the best of the series I think. Seems to be a popular effect at the moment.
