Barn in Loveland, CO

I am looking to Topaz users for opinions, please. I want to enter this in a photo show, but I am trying to decide between three versions. Help me choose… Thank you!! Version 1: Clarity, Adjust.


Version 2: Clarity, Adjust and Texture Effects.
Version 3: Clarity and Adjust.

Its the third one for me, but could I suggest you straighten up the vertical of the building as I find the lean to the right a little distracting.

I see that; thanks!

Three - Yup straighten a tad. Great image. Being from Michigan can certainly relate to this.

yup straighten and then #3 for me too

I like the ‘moody’ look of #1.

I like Image 1 & 2… more 1 than 2 …but maybe mask in some of the results slightly from the barn siding and roof from image 2 into image 1?

I’m originally from Iowa, so me too. :slight_smile:

That’s the one I’m partial to also, I think.

All are nice - the first one is the one I like best.

Just for the sake of discussion, have you thought about B&W for this image?

@CabanaBoy has a point there - just a little de-saturation and/or split tone on #1 or #2 might work OR a blend of B&W with one of those two images

Very nice capture, agree with comments re need for vertical adjustment. I’m more to partial to #1.

Thank you all for the suggestions! I was leaning (ha!) towards number 1 because of the moody effect. I straightened the barn. @CabanaBoy, you suggested black and white, thanks!

@cre8art, you suggested masking the texture effects onto the barn, and I tried that. @el48tel you suggested a split tone, which I really like, by the way.

glad you tried that - I’ve been experimenting recently with the hint of split tone … both on a colour image and on a B&W … it can give a different mood. Your new #1 and #3 have just such mood. I wish you well with it.
