Old barn 1

This old barn was a little creepy in the daylight, and became satisfyingly creepier as I worked on the photo. After a lot of editing, the barn now looks like there is a ghostly presence surrounding it. Just the effect I was going for.

I spent a lot of time tuning and cropping as I worked, gradually making the photo more high contrast and cropping very tight to the barn. I also used straighten, sepia, vignette, posterize and border.

So much fun! The original is below.
