Capturing Life's Beauty One Photo at a Time
The Cider Barn located in Elburn, Illinois. Processing in Corel.
Love this shot. There so much character to old buildings.
Thank you so much, Maralee! I appreciate the support.
I loved it dear Brian, you captured such a nice view of this old barn… The colours are amazing. Thank you, have a nice day, with my love, nia
Hi Nia, thank you so much for the feedback!
The colors really work in this old barn!
David, thank you very much!
Care to share what technique achieved the oil painting look?
The technique was to bring the original capture into Corel Painter Essentials to “paint” the photograph. Once satisifed with the result, I overlayed this work with the original photograph.
I had corel on my old computer, but could never do anything that satisfied me. It seems I always like what others do, but never think my own look good enough. thanks
Really nice shot! Ito things I absolutely love–old churches and old barns! This is great!
I love old barns, too. Thank you very much!
This is the kind of subject matter I can’t resist. I like your processing on this, too. Very well done.
Ken, thank you very much!
I could look at this all day, it’s beautiful. The processing is spot on perfect for my taste. Well-done Brian!
Sarah, thank you so much for the wonderful words!
I love what you’ve done with this.
Thank you very much, CM — I appreciate the comment!
Thanks so much, Tim!
I really like old barns with character. Excellent capture!
David, I appreciate the comment!
Wonderful processing once again. Superb.
David, thanks for the support!

Thanks very much, Emilio!
Brian…nice effect and image….shalom en theos……jim
Jim, thank you very much for the feedback!
What a classic building, the effects create an artistic and interesting image, love your work! Ceers Callie
Thanks for the support, Callie!
Really a neat shot, Brian, I love it. The processing enhances the feel tremendously. Belongs in a frame for sure 😉
I used to drive through Elburn every day when I was in grad school…. brings back memories!
Thanks Susie, I appreciate the feedback. You certainly know the area then — did you go to grad school at NIU or another Chicago area school?
Good old NIU out in the corn fields 🙂 I was commuting there from Cary/Crystal Lake.
People don’t realize how pretty Illinois is- it’s really quite lovely! I think it’s wonderful that you post so many photos showcasing that part of the Midwest.
I am a barn-oholic…and this one is just fantastic. You captured the personality of the structure so artistically…the only thing missing is the frame and a huge empty place to put it on!
Tammy, I appreciate your wonderful comments — thank you so much!
excellent composition, great image
Andrea, I appreciate the comment!
my pleasure 🙂
Brian, I am enjoying your post processing more and more. It looks like you are getting very comfortable with the program. Can’t wait till you dub yourself a master at it and start making simple things like buttons look amazing! Keep it up!
Thanks, Dan. Master? Not by any stretch of the imagination. In any case, I like to experiment with different textures, effects, and results to keep things interesting. Thanks for the support!
Love the color!
I appreciate the comment, Derrick!
sure thing, that’s a neat picture!
you’re quite welcome!
Love the post processing and the colours. Very striking.
Thank you so much, S Joe!
Beautiful…the colors are stunning much like a soft painting. Thank you too for visiting us at HDRChic!

I love pictures of old barns! This one’s a beauty.
Thank you for the kind words, Patricia!
