Texture Tuesday - School's Out!

The challenge for this week from Kim is to use a 'people or person' photo.
Last Half Term my husband and I visited Woodlands Theme Park in South Devon with some friends.
This is a picture of us trying out one of the slides!  My friend is a teacher, hence she was on Half Term Hols.  Her husband had broken his foot - hence he was on sick leave!  He obviously couldn't take the ride, but he took this great photo!
I've played with it in Photshop Elements, but must admit I couldn't say what I did, except I used Gradient Maps to make it lighter, then added 2 layers of  Kim's freebie texture Granny's Cupboard.  I'm quite pleased - I feel it has definitely added something to the 'warmth' of the picture.  Click on Texture Tuesday to see more 'people pictures'.
Till next time ...

lovely texturising - I think that muting the orange of the slide means that the people are now the first thing the eye goes to - looks like you were having lots of fun

Oh just look at you!! I love this photo and the muted one is just perfect. You look like you are having so much fun - braver than me that is for sure ;0)

Well done for subtly altering this lovely photo and well done for going on the slide in the first place! You all obviously enjoyed yourselves.

I like the "old-timey" look you gave this one -- seems appropriate to the subject. And the slide looks like fun!

How fun is that! Your textures place the emphasis on the people having a great time -- just where it should be. I love this image!
