playing with textures

I've been experimenting with textures. I love how it adds a dramatic feel to simple photographs. These pictures were not bad to begin with but the added texture changes the feel of them and make it even better.

A little bit of texture around Mika's beautiful face makes her even more bright eyed.
This chrysanthemum is stunning.
....and dramatic here.
and this is just a product of boredom =)

Thank you for you comment.

I guess, that's the thing with adding textures -- it's very subjective. Most photography purist would say, the least post-processing, the better the photograph looks. But if you're trying to achieve a certain feel for a photograph, then textures can be a friend.

Thanks August Empress for the cool background!
