Kim Klassen is once again hosting her Texture Tuesday with the theme of celebrate.....I started the holiday season off with a traditional-to-us games night for friends and family (we played bunco for hours). I made a couple of flower arrangements to add to the decor so my celebrate photo is a macro of part of the arrangement.
Just a simple processing was all this shot needed I thought - first I duplicated the image and used soft light at 80% to up the contrast. Then I used Kim's Music Lovin' texture at color burn 50% to pump up the color and add those grungy edges. Those ornaments are pretty reflective and caught my tripod, my kitchen lights & cupboards, etc. I'll really have to work on positioning them better next time :)
Be sure to visit some of the other links to see what creative photographers are up to.
Then I participated in Nancy's Texture Tuesday with a different prompt - she added some new freebie textures (visit her on flickr) in a garage series and wanted to see what could be done with those. I used 2 of her garage textures and arrived at this:

All Pulped Out on Tuesday to see how others used her garage series.
