1/20s at f/4.5 ISO 100 50mm macro lens. More work with textures and layers. I am always so very inspired and in awe of the BP talents that do this so beautifully. This particular texture layer is a combination of rust colored rocks I photographed this summer. I tried uploading "premade" textures on-line and messed my computer up, so I thought it safer to take my own textures and play with them instead!

Exif: F Number: 4.5, Exposure Bias Value: -0.30, ExposureTime: 1/20 seconds, Flash: did not fire, compulsory flash mode, ISO: 100, White balance: Auto white balance, FocalLength: 50.00 mm, Model: DSLR-A700
