Tullio,
That second shot is so inviting. I defnitely want to go in and see what's there.
The sepia treatment in the fist shot just doesn't do it for me.

Thanks for your comments, Selvin. The first shot in color looks just too green. There was nothing standing out...even the gate was green from moss all the rain it's been exposed to. So I tried the Sepia effect...I thought I could add add more texture that way. I also tried B&W but did not like the results.

Where is the second gate located? Looks like a nice place to visit.

I think the sepia works with the first gate. I like it.

In addition to the gates, I see three doors in the second shot. Great capture.

Thanks Vanessa and Cal for your comments. The second gate is located in a little village near Grimsby (North East Lincolshire) called North Somercoats.

I also like the second shot. Since I love the color green, I have a feeling I'd like the first one in color.

Well, looking back at the original photo, it does not appear to be as solid green as I thought. So, with a little PP in Picasa, it actually looks better than I thought...

That does it for me, I like all the different shades. But then, such things like that always appeal to me.

Thanks. I was pleased with the results myself. Picasa has added some new (and neat) editing options. It's no PS by any means but it's very intuitive and easy to use.
