Ramshackle Barn/ Sepia Scenes


Weather-worn but still in use

Half sepia, which means I worked on this photo in two layers. The bottom layer was in colour and the top in sepia at 70%, which allows the green to show through.

Oh, I like the processing on this. Love old barns with character, too!

What a big old barn that is. You are so adept with the coloring business.

Very clever, EG. I like that even though it is aging the barn is still being used. MB

I'm going to have to take a course in Photoshop. It sounds like you are talking a foreign language.

Old barns are fascinating to me. The cows who stayed in them and the horses whose stalls were inside. It was a joyous time for farm animals to have a warm barn to sleep in during bad weather.

Thanks for visiting my blog and for the comment you left me.

Love this shot... barns tell you a lot about a people.

Great. Reminds me of some of the ones I've seen in Québec!

Betty said...

Gorgeous. I would like to learn the layering it makes a most interesting picture. I love old barns.

Jacob said...

Nicely done, as usual. Can't imagine this barn is still in business...it looks like it could collapse inward at any moment...

I like the horse, too!

kaye said...

It looks great, and I love the horse grazing contentedly in the foreground.

Weather-worn barns have lots of character. I like what you did with this photo. It's beautiful.

PERBS said...

Interestign shot and the way you processed it. If I were younger and rich, I might try photoshop but sicne I am not, I will ahve to forego that opportunity. Ü

Nina Xi said...

Coolt! I like that some of the colours is "shining" through...

Old barns.. Mmm

Honey Mommy said...

Love the editing you did on this photo! I love the look of aging barns and buildings. My parents live in WY and you see these everywhere!

Ralph said...

The sepia gives the washed out planks an antique weathered look. Happily it is still in use. The green shows life around the barn, which ensures that the building is not abandoned. Nice edits!

Carolyn Ford said...

I love your layers here. This is something I want to learn. Old and worn out barns are so perfect for sepia. Beautiful layering!

Perfectly done and love that there's still some green shown.

You have given this lovely old barn even more character, well done!

Old barns are the best! So much history to them!

This barn looks pretty dilapidated, indeed. Love the way your processing works out! Great effect!

Kevin said...

This turned out really well and certainly suits the subject.

Heidi said...

The green is so fresh in this picture! And thank you for telling us how you pull off such great things with photoshop! I love to learn new things. I might have to look into this one a little more!
