Distressed FX is one of my favorite apps, Jude. Really like how you've used it here. The lighting is ideal; perfect subject; and a very inviting image.
I like this a lot - and glad in this case it is square. The mood feels good. It would be good for us to see the original too - to see the difference.
So i have been playing around with an app called Dristressed FX that can be used on a cell phone and an Ipad. This app gives you lots of options for distressed overlays. I just wanted to share it with you.
