Portrait of an old barn – take 2

Yesterday I posted “Portrait of an old barn” which, if you haven’t seen it already, you can see here    

That first barn post used the natural colours.

The photos in this post are the result of selective colour editing in camera.

Let me know what you think.

  1. Dear Helen, I loved them too, and still fascinating me… But in this group the first one hit me more, the blue tones with the window is amazing. These photographs have a wonderful composition and light and contrast… with some effects or edition nothing being lost… it is something art in art goes on. Thank you, with my love, nia

  2. So, what exactly is “selective color editing”? Does it mean you are adding color in just certain places while the rest is in grayscale? And how do you do that “in camera”? I have so much to learn…

    • In some cameras ( but only newer ones like my D5100) you can choose up to 3 colours to “save” in a photo. It keeps the original in the camera too so makes another copy with the colours (and tones of that particular colour) preserved and all others turn to B&W. You can do exactly the same with photoshop and programmes like that on your comptuer but I haven’t got a clue about all that and frankly can’t be bothered to learn though I know I probably should !

      • Thanks for educating me! I do like the effect of picking up just the gold or red, like the old-fashioned colorized photos of the past.

  3. Number Two……by far!
    (And re your answer to Scilla and reference to photoshop..’Methink she doth protest too much’…..Bite the bullet and have a mess with Photoshop, I KNOW you’ll like it.)
