The Chase

This is proof that it pays to keep your camera handy!
I just manged to capture the lead figure before he was lost into shadow.
The before image has already had the Painterly effect and a texture.
I removed the green lens flare by painting the warm texture tones with Color Burn to cancel out the green, it worked perfectly!
I also removed those pesky council utilities grates from the footpath and a satellite dish from the distant balcony with the clone and patch tool.
The Free stone texture used last, is on my flickr site Here.

Raw Linen - Overlay @ 100%
Muscatel - Overlay @ 100%
Free stone texture - Soft Light @ 100%
This paler stone texture was brushed from the back of the head of the foreground figure.
Finish with a final desaturating color tweak to tone down the warmth from the textures.

Love the textures and what they do to your pics.

Are the CDs compatible with Microsoft Vista. If I change operating systems, would I have to purchase another set.
