Retirement equals time to learn how to use Adobe Photoshop elements program for my photographs

I love doing photography and art.  These two combine when you can be creative using a photo editing program like Adobe Photoshop elements . When I was working there was not much extra time to learn and experiment with this program but now…retirement means time! So here is an artistic photo that I created by blending a photo I took here in Popotla fishing village and a textured paper that I had in my photo stash.     Here are the 2 photos I used;  P1200078This is the photograph of a boat on the shore.  Not the greatest photo ; over exposed on the top.df-rd_all-washed-up_paper38x10This is the paper I used to layer over the photo of the boat.  Then I used the Overlay blending tool in the elements program and adjusted the opacity to make  this photograph.fishing boat overlay 5x7 copyThis is the result; a subtle but interesting textured photograph.  I love retirement.  Blending layers is the lesson for tonight.
