Not sure whether you found or set this up but it's a terrific capture either way and I like the texture work, too. #9881343

Thank You Stephen and Nikki.
Nikki I did set it up! I wondered around my yard with the red Christmas ball in my pocket, it was in trees, grasses, dried flowers but I really liked the fence and the snow by the post. When I was finishing with the RAW process and took it into photoshop I thought this image needs a texture. It seems to work! #9881411
