Barns...
Posted By: maxwell1295, 10-22-2008, 06:50 PM

A few pics of the same barn. These are 4 different images, each processed a little differently in Lightroom.

"Normal"


B&W


Slightly desaturated


Sepia

Very nice. The last image, though sepia, almost looks IF.

Nice Alan, I like to see a variety in processing styles for the same shot. Sorry, I can't pick a favourite, I like elements in different ones.

I like the colors in #1 best. I like the composition in #3 better than #1.

I like #1 for a colour shot and would like to see that shot as a sepia version. Maybe add some vignetting to it as well. The B&W has a blue tint to it. Did you just desaturate the shot or use a channel mixer?

Thanks. You're right about the last one. Maybe that's why I like it.

No need to choose, Gary....I know I couldn't. Thanks for the comments...

I agree on both points. When I use color in a scene like this, I like to bump the saturation a bit. I like the composition of #3, but I like #4's better.

I used a LR preset of some sort for all of these. I may have added a bit of a cool tone to the B&W in the 2nd shot. I'm going to do a little role reversal later on and switch the processing on the first and last shots.

Gotta watch your horizons in the sepia shot. And the verticals, too.

I quite like the slight desaturated shot.

Thanks for the tip....I'll pay more attention to that in the future. I don't have much time for PP so I usually run through them pretty quickly.
