The image was too noisy in colour - was hoping to reduce the effect by converting and giving it a more 'rustic' effect.

Interesting image, I have uploaded a couple of mods.
Thanks Digby - sepia never crossed my mind but it works well here. Like the mono upload too - I definitely need some more exposure on the wood panelling.
Decent idea here. You have over exposed through the window - better to get the exposure outside correct then lighten the shadows later by selection or dodging. Surprise you had much noise at ISO200 unless your exposure was considerably under, and that seems unlikely. The mono mod looks lacking in contrast for me and I would use a more subtle sepia, but that is a personal choice.
Thanks Paul - should have said it was an HDR attempt but I hadn't recorded enough detail in the shaded region below the window.
I like what you've done with this window and view it has a certain remote feeling about it, well done. Ian if you have "elements/Ps" etc it's easy to give it a more dramatic feeling, well in my eye's . Make a copy and in blend mode select "overlay" this has a more subtle effect on colours and contrast, then reduce to what your happy with, or erase the effect from certain areas that you want to leave (see mod). I then used "levels" to make the image darker and removed the effect from everywhere other than through the window.
I hope you find this helpful, if not for this image then it may be something you can use later.
It doesn't really look D, so you handled that well, but maybe not quit strong enough. I rarely like HDR images as they look so artificial most of th time, especially on scenic images - better for architecture.
The mood is all captured here Ian, Harris is such a wonderful place, so many gems hidden away around the island. I'll be beck soon hopefully, South Uist shortly, can't wait. Have you tried converting the image twice one for outside and one inside and merging the two images?
