For today's Theme "Old Building in Sepia"

This was taken during our school break last week.

While the family skied I hunted for photo opportunities!

I found this old cabin? Plowed in and forgotten by the weather cool! I would think this is a summer cabin!

PP: I'll add original in WS so you can see the work done

shot in RAW (loving it)
adjusted created a 2nd copy layer and on that layer I added just a tad of sepia changed that layer from normal to overlay adjusted sharpness... added this really oldish looking frame in PSE5 TRIED MY hardest to match the TL blue color.... text size YOU! :)

hi Tricia,
This is a good addition to the theme . I like your PP work to present it . The effect fits perfectly with this style of picture .You worked hard but, it pays because the result is there .

beautiful cottage!
well presented shot and great effect

Happy Friday Tricia - good addition - like the inclusion of the birch trees in the BG of this old building. WS was very helpful in identifying the snow in the FG. Framing is very fitting.

Fabulous PoV and I like the idea of colour converted to sepia here -- a 60's feeling to the age of the photo
Great PP work to create the unusual frame

Hi Tricia, my today neighbor, splendid composition with superb PP work, fascinating view of old house, great presentation, very well done, ciao Silvio

Amazing post Tricia, that is enhanced even more
by the pro processing work here.
Great feel to this, wild picture.
Well done.

Hi Tricia
Interesting creation.
The pp is great
The framing really goes well with the photo.
Great work

Well done Tricia in the partially sepia work. I like the decoupage on the border of the pic.
Nice shingles building, well captured.
Cheers :)

WOW! Great shot Tricia! Nice layer work here! Looks like an old place, fixin to fall down! Tell me this isn't your house! A bit drafty eh?

Great PP work on this Tricia. I like the overall effect and the hint of green adds to this, gives it depth as you look into the photo, you go from color to sepia.

I like both of these but the sepia has a great old feel to it. A very interesting building, makes me wonder about its history. TFS

Excellent PP work.
The color code for the TL BG is #E0EEEE or Red:224, Green:238 and Blue:238.
But yours is close enough :-).

Great work done on the photo
Like the frame, gives a older mood on the photo

very nice framing and colors

Hello Tricia,

Well done.TFS

One of the best sepia artwork that I have seen so far.I especially enjoy the fact that you also kept some of the original colors such as the green of the branches.I love your frame,just wonderful and perfect for that kind of picture.You took something that could have been of no interest and transformed it into a real nice artwork.Bravo!

hello Trica,

nice one here.. its like the picture coming out from an old of piece of paper.. just like the paper that's how the building look like.. well done on this one and very good addition to the theme..

have a lovely weekend :)

regards, terry

Lovely job and presentation Tricia, and even more so because I see some green on the tree.
I'm in doubt if I find it attractive as a summer cabin, but the surroundings no doubt are very attractive.

Yes, I think winter would be a bit too cold to live in this one!!
Good find Tricia, and the pp work looks great. I do like the ripped and crinkled photo - that's brilliant - so real

HI Tricia,
A wonderful find for the theme, and a unique presentation as well. Hope you all had an enjoyable break from routine.
All the best,

Hello Tricia

Beautiful visual,
I like this his very old picture.
a piece of torn paper frames his theme well.

Hi Tricia

Nice PP for the sepia building theme. You have made this look like an old photograph torn from a book. Nice timeless feel to it

Hello Tricia, great presentation for the theme, great idea with a very good PP work, thanks!


Hi Tricia,
I'm not such a fan of this frame, but that's a matter personal taste. Regarding the picture and theme: superb! Excellent tribute to the sepia theme, attractice composition. So overall a fine posting my dear Tricia!

Wonderful framing Tricia. An excellent POV with good colour and detail in teb cabin itself and the conversion to sepia hiding some of the blurred snow. A good result! TFS,

Many thanks for your comment on ‘Reflections/reflecting’
