A Touch of Red/ Sepia Scenes

At the end of a long country driveway

Using Photoshop Elements, I duplicated the photo to create two layers. Then I converted the second layer into sepia using the old paper filter (yep, again. I like that filter!), and then, using the eraser, I removed the old paper over the red ball. Finally, I merged the two layers and voila! Hope you like it!

I like it! I like your method too. I'd have tried to mask it out which would take far longer and probably end up looking sloppier. I'll have to try it your way next time :).

Jarart said...

I do like it and I'm going to try that method.

It looks really good! I love the scene.

I LOVE it!! I have PSE5, not 6 - so I don't have that Old Paper filter. Boo Hoo!

I like what you've done. Very creative!

I like it , I like it!!!
well, the old paper filter trick is like looking at the skin on the backs of my hands so not that so much. :D

I love it. Great photo and improvements.

Really nice photo. I like the old paper touch. Of course I have no idea what you are talking about. I have so much to learn.

Now this is a very interesting job done here with the photo.
I must say I guess the original scene would certainly be worth seeing, but this sepia touch makes it all much more interesting!

I like the effect. I saw three guys on Photoshop the other day and they were talking about stuff I never knew about. It will take me years to catch up with my son who is something of an expert.

Marvellous post with beautiful strange subject! It is beautiful and I like!

Walker said...

It totally works.

Rose said...

I love it! I have got to take the time and try some of this stuff again. I love that you left the touch of red!

kden said...

That is just totally beautiful.

Leora said...

It's beautiful, your spot of red. Such a nice choice of scenery for adding just a bit of color.

Carletta said...

Excellent!
That touch of red was a brilliant idea.

Louise said...

Wonderful. Excellent. Fabulous! Well-done.

Dirk said...

Looks very good! The composition of the picture is great and very good what you've done with it.

I love this shot! I need to take some photo editing classes! I just got Photoshop Elements for myself for Christmas. I've barely learned anything about it.

BJ Roan said...

I love it!

see you there! said...

The way that spot of red pops out is great. Good editing job.

Your work on this shot was well-worth the effort!

Dianne said...

I love how you say "voila" !!

I'd still be trying to find my first layer lol

this is a perfectly composed scene

PERBS said...

What a beautiful scene! Would make a beautiful postcard. . .

Janie said...

Wow, that's an interesting image. I had no idea you could erase layers like that to show color beneath. I'm going to have to give it a try.

I absolutely LOVE this shot!
:-) I'm still trying to figure out how to add a touch of color to a black and white shot.

starnitesky said...

I like this effect, I will have to try it myself.

Babs (Beetle) said...
