Another shot from the N. Georgia GTG at Barnsley Gardens. Expect to see a couple. :-)

-Cropped
-Levels and curves adjustment
-Layer mask set on Screen mode to brighten up the barn and tree line.
-Used the Midnight sepia action then dodged back in some of the darker spots on the barn and trees while leaving the edges darker
-cloned out some of the more distracting leaves in the lake.
-USM, resized and added small border.

Lens: Borrowed Tims (tjmueller) 10-20mm Sigma. I think that's what it was. This was taken at 14mm but I did crop a bit off the left side. Thanks Tim!

Editing Music: Edwin McCain, mostly the song "Solitude"

Thank you everyone, for taking the time to comment. I appreciate it. :-) I was trying something a little different for me with this one, and the processing may have been a little heavy, but this is how I envisioned this place to look and was really trying to give it an "old time" feel. Thanks again.

I really like this shot. It feels like the horizon tilts a little to the left to me though. I like the muted tones and the reflections. 8

the dodge & burn is too obvious, other than that a pleasing shot

This is a beautiful scene. The vignetting seems a little lopsided - heavy on the left. And perhaps lighten up the barn a bit to draw attention to it. Love the colors.

Love the colors and the soft feeling around the edges. Gives this a dreamy/memory feeling. Good Luck

Burning the sky, if that was done, made it look to unreal to me. Wonderful setting though

This is a very nice picture, I really like it, but I think competition is tough - good luck! By the way, the burning on the corners could have been a little more even.

Stunning landscape. It has all the elements that really capture my eye: reflection, a beautiful sky and an old building. Nicely done!!! 8

The color is wonderful but the house looks askew. Maybe too wide.
