Look for shapes, lines and repeating elements, combining these will give you a great pattern and texture. See the close-up photo of the tree bark above, it has lines shapes and repeating elements all combine. When taking photo of a tree bark I look for the part that looks dry with a mold on the bark. This will add some dynamic range to your subject giving more detail texture.

A Photoshop plugin from Topaz Labs, it was design to run on versions of adobe photoshop cs3, cs4 and the latest, cs5. Topaz adjust can greatly enhance your final photograph by addig contrast, color and detail, topaz adjust can also create a pseudo HDR looking images from just a single jpg, tiff, or your camera’s native raw file, and I can say that it does it really good.

The rocket blower and the brush is great in situation where you just need to blow dust out of the lens without wiping or touching the lens, perfect in dusty surroundings.
