I can see we are going to have fun with these lenses! Interesting pattern and textures, it looks rather like wood grain.
Can't resist playing with filters in Affinity! This was gradient map / darken   Posted: 05/04/2021 16:43:46

I'm sure glad you didn't say it was skin again--I'm not sure I would have wanted to know where it came from! Very sharp, nice balance of lights and darks. Seems like brown tones is a prominent theme this month! Followed closely by lavenders and purples!   Posted: 05/04/2021 21:28:08
