Creative Portraits - Texture and Overlays

Experimenting with combining nature images, silhouettes, and vintage overlays to see what I can create.  I loved the idea of using the trees as a visible skeleton inside the silhouette.  With their deep roots and sky reaching branches, trees are both grounding to earth and connecting to the heavens.  

For those of you photoshop geeks, I use the screen blend mode to combine the trees with the portrait. The image shows through the dark sections of the silhouette and is invisible in the lighter areas.  I finished with a wet plate vintage overlay in Alien Skin.

I think I an going to print this on fine art paper!!
