The Secret's Out

OK, I'll spill the beans!
I was out "Barn Hunting" the other day... YES, I said barn hunting.  They're my favorite thing to shot!  So found these buildings at a working farmstead up a winding private road.  It appeared that the farmers once had cattle, horses, and hens.  But now they only farm the fields.  There were No Trespassing signs posted.  But, Hey it's all for the sake of Art.  Right?  Check out the OLD BARN challenge!

Straight out of the Camera


I added a sepia gradient map, fill color, and blended the layers
Last, I added Kim Klassen's Warm Grunge Texture and my Clouds

  6. This is amazing - I love it! I cannot wait until I learn more about blending layers, etc. Too funny about the "no trespassing" - I most certainly would have ignored it!

  7. So beautiful!! You've inspired me to read up on gradient maps. I am fairly new at PSE, so I am continuously learning. I have played around with gradient maps, but still don't really know what I am doing. Tutorials here I come.
