Winter Wyeth

Thanks for viewing and I hope you had a LOvely Christmas
Day. THis image was in response to Paul's previous
suggestion regarding processing more to a Wyeth style. I
did have this image a bit darker..but settled on this
luminosity instead ??

I like the nature of the colors to be found with the grasses and the trees (which is especially effective with the picture set against a black background) which serves to make these two elements of the image stand out strongly, the perspective with the viewer being led along the snow covered path in the left viewing the loneliness of the abandoned building and just that sense of loneliness of the building that served as the house for generations and now stands alone with the trees and the grasses working to reclaim the work of man.

This house «speaks» as much as the photo you made of it. The trees seem
to be protecting the abandoned building. The dirt road at the left is
essential to the photo.
A very inspiring image !

I was about to write my comments but Pierre and Jan above have nearly said it all.
Brilliant image and I love the textures and the colour treatment. It is very much in the
style of Wyeth which I was introduced to at the exhibition of the three Wyeths in Maine a
couple of years ago. Superb

It always seems like such a shame to see structures like this abandoned
for all purposes - except for those photographic ones, where they
really shine.

This is great! Although something tells me it could be a little darker,
the brightness and tones give this a nice vintage feel that is very
unique. A nice composition and with well done effects!

It looks a bit better on my Facebook page. And I did tone it down
because it looked really good at this tone at the print size. Thanks
for viewing and giving me your thoughts !!

Very nice; evocative. Cool, wintry feel. Great colors!

Comments by Julie M. Dant on Sun, 01/04/15 22:00 know this is one that I wish I'd found. ;( lol Doubt if I
could have made it look this good, though, GB. I love the high keyed
look of it. Perfect. And I have always enjoyed Wyeth's work and the
look of his buildings. SUPERB image. You always make me WANT to get
up early on a snowy moring..or after a snowy night..and go out
tramping in the country...but..then...I sleep on it and forget to set
the alarm. lol
