I thought this craft workshop in the grounds of Traquair House (Scottish Borders) lent itself to application of an antique effect. The original is shown at V 2.

My thanks to all who supported Alan Titchmarsh, and a big than you to Nezih {nonur} for his much appreciated UA.

Ronnie.

There is such a difference between these two versions, Ronnie!
The oldie worldy V1 is probably my favourite - takes you back in time so well.
It was quite a shock(in the best possible way!!) to go to V2, which I also like very much!
Excellent!

The owners could do worse than re-painting the doors to the colour of your v1, Ronnie, the aging process is beautifully empathic.

The antiqued effect works very well and I can see its appeal but I prefer version 2. I'd like to see a sepia toned version too, but make sure you get the right shade is sepia!!!

Your processing in V1 is so natural Ronnie.

Traquair House is a place I've never visited - must put in on the 'to do' list.

Whilst the original image is very good in its own right, a liberal sprinkling of Ronnie's Magic Powder has taken the manipulated image into another world and another time...
