Original photo shot with a Canon D60 converted to infrared, edited in Photoshop, then with Nik Silver 2.0 added a fine art filter. Lastly, the Kim Klassen texture, "dream" was added to the layers.

One of my dreams is to live in an old renovated cottage on a beach with an inlet behind me, a dock extending into the inlet and a small beautifully appointed dock house for guests. A place where I could take a little boat out to fish, shrimp, crab or just enjoy the waters.
Three chunks of seedless watermelon for Texture Tuesday-the number 3 eDition. I'm not sure I'm that crazy about the post processing, but here are the specifics- three textures used (3 textures, 3 chunks watermelon)-Scratched magic-Screen 72%, Warm Sun-Multiply 74%, and Just Blush-Multiply 34%.
A more simple texture processing using just one texture, Brushed Linen two times, blending mode Multiply 100% and Multiply 80% with some texture brushed away from the red jam.
Just spent lovely week at Kiawah Island, riding bikes on the miles and miles of nearly pristine beach, cruising the area looking for local fresh shrimp to bring back home and visiting the Firefly Distillery on Wadmalaw Island, sampling their famous Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka. Even though the resort had many first class restaurants to choose from, we cooked meals in our villa's well-equipped kitchen. Having said that, I did lug my cast iron frying pan that I'm never without! Everyday, we ate shrimp in some form, had sandwiches of dead ripe Heirloom Cherokee Purple tomatoes sliced on soft grocery store white bread slathered with mayonnaise (Duke's or Hellmans, your choice) and sprinkled with cracked black pepper. Heavenly and oh, so simple! We fried fresh okra and patty pan squash and for dessert, enjoyed fresh strawberries and creamy vanilla ice cream. I'm happy to report that there was no weight gain!
Image shot with a converted Canon D60 and a Canon 75-300mm f/5.6 lens at 155mm, f/4.5, IS0 200. If you mouse over the image, you will see that the background of the Raw file is brick colored while the leaves are white and the butterfly is black and white rather that black and yellow.
Using Nik Silver Efex Pro 2.0, I converted the image to black and white with the filter Film Noir. If you would like more information on Digital Infrared photography and what cameras are best for conversion, listed are several sources.
