Textures are really cool and unique way to give you photographs a whole new feel and emotion. When done correctly it can result is some outstanding photographs. I love using textures on my images, and often will combine two to three textures to an image not just one.

Below is one example. The original image lacked mood and was flat as it was taken on very Overcast day. Adding the texture to this image gave it an old and aged look.
