Recreating lightscatter image

The lightscatter blog had THIS interesting image in a recent post. I would duplicate the image here but I’d rather you go see it there.

Anyway, I liked the look of it and I made a half-assed attempt at duplicating it.
Yes, I know it’s not quite the same. Some would go so far as saying it’s nowhere close.

Fair enough. I have a couple of texture files that I should be able to overlay on my photos to get me a bit closer. The above was achieved using Photoshop filters and after a few tries, I knew it wasn’t quite gonna give me what I wanted.

BUT, I was in a hurry to put something out and so — after trying a few things, I settled on the above look. Here it is with a different set of leaves.
I know, I know . . . it is a poor substitute. Honest, I’ll give it a better try as soon as I refresh my faulty memory regarding overlaying textures and creating a whitewash effect.

Stay safe, and if you feel like reading three short stories whose titles all begin with the letter “F”, and if then you feel like voting for your favorite of the “F” story HERE, well, shucks, that would make three writers all giddy and stuff.

That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.
