Knock, Knock/ Sepia Scenes


Front door on an old log house still in use

At the front, the house looks like a log cabin. A little further back and attached to the cabin is an addition. Back even further is a second addition - this one in progress.

Done in two layers: Layer one is full colour. Layer two is sepia at 70% opaque.

Such great editing. I love the slight touch of color. Makes it look even more rustic.

Very inviting door!

What an interesting doorway. I really like the way you have edited this photo.

Betty said...

Great picture. I so want to learn how to do that.

Jacob said...

Nice job, again! Interesting place, the Clarks have there. The little cover on the porch needs a bit of work, but I do like the door

The building looks rather old. I wonder if this Clark is related to the Clark of Lewis and Clark?

Probably not.

Looks great. I do love log homes and that front door is wonderful. Nice work on the photo.

Cezar and Léia said...

This is such a nice composition! I wonder if the house is comfy inside...
God bless you!

I wonder if someone recently bought the place and are not only going to add on to the back but fix up the rest after they have a bit mor eroom. Something to watch for. . .

This picture just knocks my socks off. Fantastic in all ways.

I enjoy your sepia scenes, took many photos of some great old barns. It is on my winter 'to do' list!

Pacey said...

I love old houses, they've been one of my favorite subjects. This one has got a very unique door. Great for sepia too.

Carletta said...

You've got to love the slamming of a screen door! :)
Nice editing.

Tricia said...

How do you do that? How do you get that look? I love it so much!

What's behind that screen door?
With so many beautiful and elaborate details outside and around that original door, there's bound to live extraordianry personalities inside as well.
I, for sure, would like to say hello.

Thanks for visiting by Sydney blog today and yor question about Australia. You're right, Australia became a nation in 1901. The British settled here from 1788 and there were a number of colonies across the continent. They became states and at federation came together to form the Commonwealth of Australia. Cheers.

I have never played with sepia tones. Yours in quite wonderful and inspires me to one day give it a try.

Small City Scenes said...

This is really neat. I like how you did the coloring. You know I will have to try something similar. LOL MB

Marice said...

that door looks really nice in sepia.. and i like how u put layering on it :)

mine is up too

kaye said...

this is perfect. I love the roughness of the cabin, the texture is really brought out with the sepia. I love how you left the screen door green. The dainty design of the screen seems a little out of place with the exterior of the building. Isolating the screen emphasizes this difference. great interpretation. If you want to wander down my road I’m home.

Heidi said...

So country-chic! I love it. I wouldn't mind hanging a photo like this in my kitchen. It's all done in greens and country grapes. This would looke fantastic with it. Do you sell your photographs or do you just do this as a past time?
Thanks for stopping by my blog yesterday! and I hope you have a minute to come check out my sepia scene for the day! If you'd like to stop by I'm at Cake Crumbs.

Patti said...

It's hard to believe that house is still in use.

I like the light sepia touch. I keep trying to attain that! It is always too yellow when I sepia-fy.

I also like how you've kept a bit of color in the photo.
