An old image of Fredau with a marbled texture that I took in Summer at the Duomo di Siena overlaid, they just seemed to work together but I'b be keen to hear if you agree.

Thanks for taking a look, hope you've all had a good Christmas Grin

I like the image and your overlay. The only reservation I have is that there is a lot of not so interesting area to the left hand side.

Like the processing on Fredau, and the texture additions Darren.
For me the item to the lhs of her (what ever it is) draws the eye and might be worth toning down of cloning over.
there is also strong line under her arms which needs some attention too.
For me I would reduce the opacity of the texture around what she was lying so she anchors more into the image.
Hope this is what you what Darren

Thanks guys.

Richard, the item to the LHS is a column that was just behind Fredau as she lay there (remember Wink ). It reminded me of columns we saw in Rome this year and that is what gave me the idea of using the marbled texture I shot in Siena. The strong line under her arms is actually the step she is lying on and it bothers me a bit too but is on the original image, I agree about reducing the opacity of the texture beneath her though and may give it a go.

Thanks again.

Darren.

I think the subtle colouring works very well on that background Darren. Hope you had a lovely Christmas Smile
