I don't know what you're up to with your processing, but these are just marvelous. It's not so noticeable unless they're enlarged, but they look - well, I don't know. Gorgeous, I guess. The one of the little building with the cedars to the right is inviting and poignant, all at once. You're turning into a real artist.
Thanks, Linda. Yeah, I'm trying a few new things but I have a long ways to go before I'm completely happy with my results. The two-seater outhouse with the cedars and the last pic of the barn were done in a painterly style using filters and textures. More and more I'm leaning in that direction for certain images, usually landscapes, and I think with time, practice and new techniques I could have some serious fun. Too bad work gets in the way.
That's what I'm talkin' about. I'm with shoreacres - the outhouse has a certain sadness to it. I'm captivated by the gingerbread at the gable. That someone took the time to craft those pieces for an outbuilding show a sense of pride and optimism. Love the look, Tom.
Thanks, Bud! I don't believe I ever saw an outhouse with such intricate detail and styling. Impressive, and now I have go back and see what else I can find on that farm.
