Sepia Scenes

I've posted about these quilt barns before. You can click here for the original color photo posted last August. For today's post I was just going to change the image to sepia and erase the quilt pattern but I played around with my software just a little more and this was the result.
Briefly I took the original color image, added a layer and changed it to sepia. I then erased the quilt pattern, added a 'time machine' effect and added edges. I'm liking this a lot. Hope you enjoy it as well.

This is such a beautiful picture. The barn is classic, of course. The quilt adds a timeless quality, and the sky in sepia is great. A wonderful take!

That's pretty cool. It really makes the blue stand out.

This is beautiful! It is so nostalgic, such an important part of Americana.

I love the barn, love the contrasts, so nostalgic.

Hi Carlotta. I had not seen your original post of the barn quilts before today. And now to see this and the one from August - I've never seen or heard of this. What a TREAT.

About the church, it was open. We were able to just walk in. I think this was so because a caretaker was there mowing the lawn and later he was going in to sweep. Even though it is not regularly used, it is beautifully cared for. We were very lucky he was there.

Pietro said...

Carletta, you have created very attractive effects in this picture. The edges are interesting too.

I love half sepia, and you did great with this one! It would have been a shame to wash away the colours of the quilt with the sepia! Well done!

Robin said...

Ooh, I like that a lot! Leaving the quilt subtlely colored really takes the shot to another level. Great job Carletta.

Hello Carletta.
What you did with your photo is awesome! I love how it turned out, especially with the quilt. If I may ask, what software are you using?

Vignetting is perfect for this. The quilt pattern is amazing. We don't have these big barns around here, at least not anymore.
