Barn – One Photo Focus

I edited Cee Neuner’s photo of a barn donated for the April One Photo Focus challenge. After some Lightroom tweaks I brought it into Photoshop. I used spot healing, content aware fill, and cloning to remove the modern electrical wires. Then I used on1 to add a subtle antiqued look. After that I added adjustment layers in Photoshop; such as, color inversions, overlays, brightening and darkening, colored gradient, and grayscale. I converted a copy of the image layer to outlines and inverted it which created white outlines on the flowers to give it a bit of extra punch. I changed the color of the roof and brushed in a patina, added some early morning mist, and my final added flourish is the weathervane (open source).

    I actually like the light mist better than the fog I added. I think I pass the piece of cake back to you. Very creative edit. Nicely done.

    Love the addition of the morning mist and weather vane. It creates a lovely mood, Sherry.

    Beautiful processing – and it’s become a mysterious and gorgeous photo.

      Thank you Otto. I wanted it to look like a slightly spooky old barn in dawn mist with a gathering storm. Glad it worked. Cee gave us a good photo to work on.
