Splash of Gold

     Adding Bonnie's "Splash of Gold" texture to one of my favorite photos I took in Acapulco a few years ago. The photo is fantastic on its own, but I really like how the "gold" texture enhances it and sets a "mood" - it might be nice as an Easter card. [The bird was serendipitous; I did not manipulate the photo except for the texture.] It was a clear blue sky, gorgeous day. I might play a bit more when I return from holiday to make it brighter. Am saving this as a draft since I leave in a couple of hours... awaiting Friday. Always enjoy the PDPA challenges. (Tues 02.21.2012)

Great image - love the composition. And I really like your use of the texture; it adds richness and is a little unexpected - which is a good thing!

What a fulfilling perspective, Karen. It imparts a feeling of security. Texture works well with the clouds.
Have a great time in the warmth.
