Abandond Homestead

Hi...I like it. I'm no expert, but without the color of the foliage the whole feel is one of ... well, maybe, loneliness. I, too, like to play around in photoshop, but I had never quite thought of this type effect. Good thought. #8313

Thankyou Christina for your comment. I liked the color of the yellowish sandstone of the building but it was overshadowed by the green foliage and the bright blue sky, so I turned them into B/W and it realy brought out the sandstone color. But as you said it made the whole scene kind of eerie and lonely. #12778

I took this photo of an abandoned homestead in the Australian bush. I like combining B/W with color in photographs. This affect was done in photoshop, I would appreciate your valued comments.
