Sometimes, playing around can be real fun. And one of the things I love to play around with is texture. Texture is everywhere! In bricks, trees, flowers, everything that surrounds us has a texture to it.
Left-Hand Image – Before
- The left-hand image is a photograph I took of a Rhododendron at Emmetts Garden in Kent. As you can see there is texture in the leaves, the petals, and the raindrops that sit on those pink petals.
Right-Hand Image – After Adding a Texture
- The right-hand image was sent from Lightroom to On1 Photo RAW 2023, and I added a metal texture included in the software created by a fellow photographer and friend, Leanne Cole. I just love how this particular texture created a texture upon a texture, especially the raindrops.
This rhododendron I thought would bean ideal image for Cee’s Flower of the Day Photography Challenge. If you like Flowers, then do check out Cee’s daily posts.
When photographing anything, look for the texture especially in landscape, floral and architecture… and try to enhance it and bring out the features of the texture. One thing I do love photographing is trees. I love their texture, especially on the trunks and leaves. But what caught my eye recently on our visit to Nymans, was the Dovecote at Nymans; with its textures in the door and brickwork and thought it would be an ideal entry for Dan’s Thursday Doors Photography Challenge. Dan’s Thursday doors run every week on a Thursday. Check it out, it is a fun challenge to play, all you need is a door or two!

There was plenty of texture within that image alone; so it didn’t need another texture added to it. I like the coarseness of the bricks and the texture in the wooden door.
Until next time, Happy Snapping!
