The Taj

Posted by
Ansie (Paarl, South Africa) on 27 September 2010 in Architecture and Portfolio.

A mystical, completely overwhelming experience!
I am back after a long time traveling, no, I did not go to India, but will in January. I dug this out of the archive because I am so excited about going to India. I put a texture over.

Thank you to those who kept asking me where I were. I travel with an ipad, so it is difficult to upload photo's, next time I will GO prepared!

Thank you for visiting! I am trying to improve my photography, so any comments will be most welcome!

Oh, ik ben jaloers ... heerlijk naar India! We hebben daar gewoond (Tamil Nadu) en het is een prachtig en mystiek land. Welkom terug trouwens! Een sfeervolle foto van het Taj en de textuur past er perfect bij.

Christine Walsh from Astoria, NY, United States

I really love the texture over the photo. I am terrible with PS so I don't know how to do textures - but this one is great.

@Christine Walsh: Thank you very much. Textures are actually very easy, type texture photoshop tutorial into google, and follow it step by step. There are wonderful textures for free on the net, but looking for your own is the best!
