Working a New Project

I'm providing images to a client for a big juicy hotel decor project. When typically providing images for a project the client will select images from my stock site and present to client. For this project the client needed something "different", "abstract", and "regional" of this rural area. These were my only instructions, beyond that the client (my client's client) didn't know what they wanted until they saw it. This is a good client for me, they have provided me with many good projects. The size of this project is such that I don't mind some extra effort. For an initial round of images I took some recent images I like, added some textures using various blending modes in Photoshop. Tried to take some "regional" images and do something "different" and maybe even get "abstract". I provided the client with 20 or so comps to see what direction this takes. We'll see where it goes but I like the results so far, whether anyone else does is a different matter. But, I'm glad fiddled around with these. It filled my head with some new ideas. I like the effect of adding the textures and shall continue to experiment. The only problem is that I tend to take a good idea then beat it to death. I must show restraint but restraint was never one of my strong suits. Here are a few of the comps I like.

I like the yellow one the best. It has a happier look than the other ones.
