Fun With Filters - Barn Find

Have you ever wondered "What if?" Of course you have. I took this photo last year. The barn is located about 20 miles from our house. I was looking through these images the other day and when I came across this one I said, "What if I convert it to grayscale and put a little texture to it."

The results surprised me! There are some free filters from On1 that run in PhotoShop and PhotoShop Elements. Once I converted the image to grayscale (black & white) I stacked a couple of filters on top and this is what happened. There are times when a grayscale image seems to convey more of the soul of the subject in the photo than color, but this is ridiculous. I may have to do a whole series on barns in grayscale. To get the full impact of the post processing, just click on the image to enlarge.


  1. Great job with the filters. That poor old barn looks like it is ready to go anytime.
