Back side of holey old barn
I love old barns and am lucky that I live in a rural area where there are plenty for me to photograph. The more holes the better and this one sure was holey!
I took this photo more than a couple of years ago but was never happy with the photos (I do hope I'm a way better photographer now!) until I decided to try the filter in Photoshop Elements called Pencil Sketch.
Close up of first photo's left-hand side
In layers, I applied Pencil Sketch, next duplicated the layer and then multiplied the two and merged down.
Next I changed the opacity to somewhere between 70 and 80% and voila! some colour from the original layer came through.
Foundation on left-hand side
I repeated the process for all four photos and now I am happier with the look.
