Texture Tuesday-Movie eDition-Lady in White

For Texture Tuesday-the Movie eDitionLady in White, a 1938 film. Basically, the photo only alludes to the name of the movie, not the plot. I took two photos, one without the figure and one with the figure. The two photographs were merged, then ghostly figures attained by adjusting the opacity of that layer. Next the "plaster" texture from Kim Klassen was  used. Lastly, a levels and curves adjustment.

Image shot with a Leica d-lux5 in black and white, then used an additional filter with Nik Silver Pro 2.0 which deepened the black and white effect.
