A book publisher wanted a shot of Paris and this was the picture I submitted with the added textures from my BEST TEXTURES 1 AND 2 sets. There is quite a big difference from the original shot (see below) and it is quite amazing what can be done with some good textures. Follow below to how I did it.

I started off with CHURCH RED at colour blend mode at opacity of 88%.

Next was CHERRY SMOKE at multiply at 57%.

Then PLASTER DUST from my BEST TEXTURES 2 set using soft light at 41% opacity.

Lastly I used BOOKWORM JACKET using hue at 100%.

And to finish off the edges I added BORDER 7 from my new black borders set that you can see here as well as on the website.
