The first word that comes to mind is "rustic."

I especially love the first one, with the wagon wheels. I like the circles of the wheels contrasted with the horizontal lines of the side of the house. The spokes add an interesting design as well.


I picture someone peeking out that small window to see if all is clear to go outside, or if the bad guys are still out there.

too much coffee this morning, I guess!

Perfect---perfect for sepia.
The first one looks like right out of the old west and the second more woodsy up in the mts. type.

I love 'em. PERFECT!!!!

You got a knack, EG. MB

I just love your barn/country scenes, EG. With the right about the history of the area they are in, they would make a lovely regional picture book.

Nicely done, as usual. Makes one think, though, that perhaps the "good old days" weren't all that good! It was tough pulling water from a well and using an outhouse and trying to stay warm in the winter and cool in the summer...

I like them both. Very creative. Valerie

Lovely "old" scenery.

These are super! And perfect choices for sepia!

I'm very weak for this kind of subject. These photos have a story to tell.

PS Regarding method: Have you tried shooting in RAW and converting in Camera RAW (part of PS). It gives you much better control - and is easier.

Beautiful to see these photos when most are in colour these days.
Thanks for your comment.

These are wonderful, EG. I especially love that first.

This house of logs has its rustic charms. The look is of something that was built of stout materials destined to last a long time. Of course a single fireplace to keep warm with drafts everywhere, and I assume an outhouse too...a tough way to live in winter in the great white north. Still it is quire charming...
