Another inspiring B&W image from you I saw this morning : ) The main subjectis standing a little bit in the distance, therefore seems to have lost some of its significance just relatively, IMO, well, probably to be able to provide a matching foreground, like the tree to the left...Ah, one should regard an image as a whole after all ; )

Hi Mandy,

I like the overeffect of the shot!!! we have a lot of old brns up here in the U.P. seeing I am working thrid shift at work I don't get much time to go out and shoot so when I see a great picture I plkay with some editing techniques that I use. I did some playing with this picture. Here is the results of my playing. I hope you don't mind and like the results.

Hi Mandy,

Well it is a little hard to remember everything I did to it, But here goes.

1. I clarified it.

2. Then a duplicate layer and claified it again. dropped the opacity to 48%.

3. Then an adjustment layer 28% opacity set to burn.

4. Merge the layers (flattened)

5. Ran High pass sharpen set to 1.00

6. Ran the digital noise tool. It does a correction blend and sharpens also.

7. Added film grain to it. Not much

8. Ran it thru a soft focus filter. Don't remember the settings.

9. Touched it up here and there with the burn brush.

Oh and by the way I use Paint Shop Pro version 11.20. That is the jist of it. I hope that helps. If I can't get the shot the way I saw it with my eyes then I have to touch it up to get it that way.

You can get more feeling with B&W than you can get with color, Most of the time.
