Street Scene

It's Tuesday again and that means playing with photos, textures and PSE 9. Today for the Texture Tuesday challenge we were to use a photo with people in it. This one has been a fun photo to play with because it is not a portrait, but a random photo I snapped in San Jose del Cabo, Mexico, a few years ago.
First I used the posterize action that comes with PSE, then applied three of Kim Klassens Textures over the top, life's good, granny' s cupboard and stained linen.
I'm going to try to do the rollover before and after again. I hope I can figure this out. It should be so easy.
Can't get it to work. Sorry for all the posts, but you have to publish before you know if it works. Grrr!
So here's the before in after photos separately!
I think I did it!

I am always thrilled by what a little digital editing can do to a regular photograph. This is great!

Such an interesting scene...makes me wonder what they are talking about. Very nice effect with the textures too.

Great Job. Would love to know more about the class you are taking for photography and all of these tricks on the computer.

I'm loving this! It does look like a painting--lovely!

Could you please tell me where you got your "mouseover directions?" I couldn't get Pioneer Woman's to work or any of the others I found on Google. Thanks!

This is lovely Di - you get a real feel of heat in the original which you don`t get so much in the textured photo. i too would love to know what they were talking about and the lab is super cute. I`ve always wanted to visit Mexico - ahh, one day.
