Default Farmhouse on hill

Hi Chums,
Took this pic with the idea of making a water colour type effect jobber.
The first is as it was and the second is photoshoped a bit, crop, saturation, blur,watercolour,crackleur and shadow highlights.
Anybody got any feelings about it?. I thought it was like an old painting, a bit wishy washy, but I like the feel of it. Is the composition working or not?
Cheers Chums.. Mark

I like the treatment in your second pic except for the OOF.

In the second picture the oof-ness of it kind of gives it a miniature model feel. I like the second one I wish you had photoshopped out the telephone pole right in the middle though.

Hi SwushTough,
Thank you for your comments. I too get the miniature model feel from the second one.
The pole, yes, I think the pic has an old feel to it which is at odds with the telephone pole. I wish I had removed it too. Thank you.
Regards Mark
