Q: Why does JPGMAG drag the competitions on so much.

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

Hay Harvest is a common landscape on the prairies.

I've been fasicanted with adding layers to add texture to a photo for some time. It can easily alter the mood of a photograph. I still have so much to learn!
Michael Van der Tol is my favourite living photographer and he is a master at using texture to enhance his photographs. You can view his work at: michaelvandertol.com

Sorry, I'm NOT proficient with adding links.
