About the Image(s)

The Original was passed through the DAP Cezanne filter and stacked over the original. Then, as usual, these layers were treated with selective blending, erasures and adjustments with HSK, Curves and Selective Colour and luminosity.

This is a scene where I also would have stopped - absolutely! I love the abandoned feeling of this farm shack. It was a great scene to begin with; and then the Cezanne treatment and your adjustments took it to another level. The enhanced textures, colors and painterly feel are fantastic. I honestly would not change a thing. Great, great transformation.   Posted: 11/12/2020 13:20:31

Your composition is well done and the image has some attractive tones and interesting detail. You have done an excellent job in filling out the surrounding area to really highlight the shack. One thing you may want to consider is to use more sharpness on the actual shack to force the eye there. I took in into PS and applied detail selectively to a few sections on the shack. You might be able to do that with your brushes too.   Posted: 11/18/2020 16:10:45

And here I wouldn't change a thing. The tight crop is perfect, as are the enhanced colors and Cezanne effect. Your poor little sad cabin original became a knock-out painting!   Posted: 11/19/2020 20:53:46

Very nicely done and I like the coloration of the final! I didn't know that at left on the shack is a door, so perhaps refine that a tad to make it stick out just a little more. The way you framed it with the trees at right and then the colors at bottom left hold it together. Kudos!   Posted: 11/21/2020 11:19:16

I kinda wanted the old door to disappear so let it fade off.
I also obscured the NO TRESPASSING sign.
While I did some sharpening I wanted the overall effect to look painterly so left lots of the scene soft.
When I started working with this image the warm fall colours began coming through and it became
much more than what I started with.
