Before n After: Treetop View



I found this abandoned farmhouse on a farm along the rural route.   It's common to find empty farmhouses in the middle of miles of crops. Small farms are bought up and used for their fields only. You can't help but wonder who once lived here and what happen to their farm.

Bring out the cool tones in your image:
  1. Add the Antique Cool texture and set the blending mode  to overlay
  2. Lower the opacity of the texture to 65%
  3. Slide on the Innocence Cool texture and blend on soft-light
  4. Slip the opacity down to 85%
Got a before and after to share?

  4. Casey,
    Yes, sweetie I do, I don't keep a lot of prints in my shop. But you can always "convo" me for print you've seen on my blog. The pricing is the same for all my prints. Click the Etsy button under "out and about" in the top right corner.

  24. This is the kind of processing that makes me want to go back over some of my older images and see if I can make something special like this! I love it, Kristy! Old farmhouses have so much character ... this looks like a painting! Well done!
