Rainy Day Amusement

I have this weekend off, but today I'm kept indoors by a cold, raw, and rainy day. Cold I don't mind, but wet is not what I want to be on a December day. So among other things I'm doing in the apartment today, I went out on the porch and got a shot of the gazebo park across the street and then played with it in Photoshop. Here are the best results of the playing.

The original shot
The black & white version
An antiqued version, with film grain and sepia toning added
The split toned version, emulating split tone processing
The faded color photo effect, blending the split tone and the original color shot
And my old favorite, oil on canvas

  1. It's amazing the things we can do with computers that used to take hours in the darkroom to accomplish. I like the split toned version.

  2. I like all of them -but the oil on canvas grabs my attention most. You are so lucky to have such a pretty view right across the street!
