The Old Homestead

Sorry, M-R, I just had to do it. Let’s not call it a photograph. I’ll leave it up to you what to name this technique. Just be nice! Call it something printable.

      1. Emilio I grew up on a farm in Saskatchewan. I am just putting a post together with some photos of my journey there so in the next day or two it will be up. Yes good memories indeed although I am a city girl for sure. Lots of challenges to be a farmer.

      1. LOL! Don’t make me want to run another challenge again. hahahaha. Then I will have less time to visit lovely blogs like yours. 😀

        You can always do a post with the before and after, with a few more edits to show what can be done. You’re so great with it. I would love to see. 😀

    1. There are many detractors on post processing. I’m just trying to create the most emotional and/or dramatic image that I can. For me. When someone else appreciates it, that’s a bonus! Thanks, Nelson!

      1. I am sure thre was a debate about what is real photography when color photography was invented, today we do not question if color photography is real photography. I think that software is one more tool in the hands of the photographer to express is artistic talent and it is part of the creative process of photography.

        1. Thank you. I agree. The funny thing is, sometimes I like it and sometimes I feel the photographer goes too far. But that’s just my taste. Yours might be different. That’s what makes art. And horse races.

  1. I’d probably call it … a sort of line drop-out. But it’s SO post-produced that I don’t mind it, Emilio me old china. 🙂
    It’s like a drawing someone did for the cover of a calendar !

    1. Me old china? Anyway, in days, weeks, or months to come I might post an image closer to the original shot. But I did like that it looked like an etching or line drawing. Thanks.

  2. well I call this a work of art. I am glad you are at least thinking about edits, effects and processing – because there is a time and season for all things – and well, in this case – I love what you did – it feels like a lithograph – or even a metal relief – eel the depth and texture you went with shows a part of your style – and I like it much. 🙂

  3. Okay, I’m not a photographer so I don’t know proper photography terminology, but this photo captured my attention. I don’t know what it is about the photo – it looks like an interesting cross between a painting and a photo. The b/w gives it almost a haunted feel. Nice!
