This photo looked terrible in color, so I decided to try sepia.... and a little extra manipulation.

The results looks great! The contrast of the colors between the sky and the barn works well, IMO.

Great image ! For me the subdued tones of your PP suit it very well

I like it! Might look great in straight black-and-white, too.

Thanks to all for the kind words. For the life of me, I cannot remember how I got the results I did..... with the sky being the yellow-orange tint! I've tried to duplicate it time and time again, with no success! I know it had something to do with the tone curve, but.... I just can't seem to do it a second time. I've had the occasion that it would work well on other images, but I'm lost.

Very nice. Has a bit of a Wizard of Oz vibe to it.
