"Driftwood Studio"

By RonnieAG
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.

V1 works a treat.. Sympathetic processing.. Lots of details to look at too

You've added an olde worlde feeling in V1........V1 has charm.....GrinGrinGrin

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!!!
The process in V1 is fabulous! It is an upgrade to the original photo!

Your processing in V1 is so natural Ronnie.
What a delightful workshop - presumably open for business?
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...

I love the effect you have achieved in V1 Ronnie - the subject matter really lends itself to this processing in this shot. A
