Guess I'll start.

A square crop of my favorite cactus shot - original,
and then adding one of Les Brumes' textures (021 to be exact), plus an additional Satin layer using CS3. Slight curve tweak.

David, texture layering is fairly easy, open your original image and a texture image (which you can download for free from flick'r. Paste the texture image over your original image and adjust size to cover your image. Then in photoshop change the texture layer blending mode to multiply or overlay and adjust opacity if desired. You can erase parts of the texture layer if you want. You can add many layers if you like. Its a bit of trial and error. There are tutorials on flick'r also. Hope Jimmy doesn't mind me posting this.

Hard light texture layer of a sound proofing panel shot with a 15 mm fisheye.
The effect reminds me of looking at a pillow. The overexposure of the original is softened by the layer.
