texture 1. The feel of a surface or fabric.

2. The characteristic appearance of a surface having a tactile quality.

Images that emphasise the structure of a surface, its texture, rather than tone or colour, appeal to our sense of touch.
Texture becomes more apparent in closeup and tends to feature when the light source is at a low angle to the surface. The resulting shadows projected across the surface convey an impression of roughness or smoothness.

The results of DIG members' attempts to capture the tactile qualities of surfaces are shown below.
