Guess I don't know about it being grand, but it is old. Did a kind of sepia overlay on it from SmartPhoto Editor.

Carol, SPE is a good program that has lots of options. I really like your choice for the presentation of this one. It really has a wonderful rustic appeal. Good composition, and for me i have nothing but kudos on the job you did here, very nice. tigs=^..^=

I'm not sure what SmartPhoto Editor is, but this shot shows your development as a photographer. We were Caedes friends when you first started posting, and your work has developed from snapshots to the work of an artist. I love shots of old barns and dilapidated buildings. The vignetting really highlights the building. I would expect to see something of this quality on a greeting card.

To me it's both grand and old, Carol.
Perfectly done, so S+F instantly. Thanks, my friend!

PS: This artwork would be a splendid entry for the Wednesday B&W challenge (BWC)!!

Beautifully done work Carol.
As Conelius said - this would be very welcome in the BWC should you care to submit it.

My thanks to all who leave comments for my work and to those of you who like one enough to make it a favourite. To touch just one person that way makes each image worthwhile. . . . . . . . . .. . . . "The question is not what you look at, but what you see" ~ Marcel Proust

Whoa.. peeps be nailing their uploads/postings today.

Really nice, Carol.

Post processing, the base image, et al.. make for a very strong image. And on the note of the "et al" stuff.. the added texture does not overwhelm, it enhances.

Your composition, in and of itself.. is a strong element.

The colour palette, taking in your image as sum of it's constituent elements/parts.. is very pleasing and appropriate, to my mind and eyes.

There's really not much to 'constructively critique' here.

In short..

(*rereads what he has written thus far*)

.. erhm.. simply put?

Good good visual balance and weight within frame, with the barn coming to the forefront and not overshadowed by your post processing/editing. All works well.

+favs for me.. and.. a well done to you.

And.. but, of course.. thank you for sharing your creative efforts with us.

Carol - Great post-photo work to prevent this old barn with the dignity it deserves.
