Please view 2nd version for original. This is a heavily modified shot of The Haunted Mansion ride at Disneyland Paris. I wanted to give myself a challenge in trying to achieve this affect with a photo taken in mid day. Personally, think its come out quite well. Just wanted to add some ground fog but couldn't get the effect right.

So here is the list of changes I have made:
- black and white
- added rain
- some dodge and burning to boost shadows.
- dark clouds
- changed the darkness of the photo
- added some very light fog
- highlighted the middle window

Your best upload yet. Neat treatment. You need to crop a bit off the top. Some filters cause bad effects at the edges of the frame. It's apparent on this as you've added the motion blur to get the rain which has given patches of canvas so it looks unnatural. Crop a strip off and that will be improved. It's just like the haunted house in Scooby Doo.
