I was playing around with this image in onOne Software, testing out processing it in color vs. B&W, etc, when I came across this really cool preset in Perfect B&W. I added some other stylization to the photo in Lightroom (mostly with the color and tone), but the texture and scratches is from the preset. Overall it has inspired me to do something similar with my own textures … it will be fun to see what I can come up with. :)

    Very neat effect! It looks like you have two of the same photos (different styles) on top of each other with the top image cut out a little along the edges.

    the textures go well with the grass, branches and texture on the rocks – they all blend well together naturally.

    Ok, so my curiosity is piqued….which B&W preset did you use?

      It was in Perfect B&W, called “Daguerreotype Hand Colored”.
