Hans' use of textures to replace a distracting background illustrates just how much the mood of a photo can be altered with the use of the right texture/s.
Congratulation Hans, you will receive an email shortly with a link to download the Winter Warm collection of textures.
Steph from the UK.
Steph says, "...I decided to compliment the classic antique-look of the brown butterfly by overlaying it with a vintage paper texture".

Love the vintage look Steph has obtained with this combination.
Congratulation Steph. As runner up you will receive a sample of 6 of my textures, 3 from Winter Warm and 3 not yet released. You will receive an email shortly with details of how to download them.
Congrats to both of you and thanks for your entries.
