They say that copying is the best form of flattery...
I really like how you obscured the text layer in this image. Care to explain how you achieved that effect?

Thanks Rob, Bill, and Amanda for the compliments.

Rob, the technique is really quite simple. In photoshop I dragged the text layer onto the image layer. Set blending mode to multiply and adjusted the opacity to my liking. This particular text layer (with textures) was purchased from CG designs. #5966995

BetterPhoto Websites: If you see an orange website link directly under the photographer's name, it's totally okay. It's not spam. The reason: BetterPhoto is the one that offers these personal photography websites. We are supporting our clients with those links.

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.
