Pino Alto New Mexico

Digging up some old photographs and playing around with my new editing software from Skylum.

This photo was taken in 2018 while on vacation in New Mexico.

This was at a very tiny place called Pino Alto, were there were some very old buildings that really caught my eye.

What I wanted to create with this photo edit was the Old West feel and a grainy look.

LAI has template suggestions for the photo, I chose a black and white template and incorporated my edits as well.

I am curious as to how my other photo editors will do with this image, and will play around with them to compare the results.

This photo was shot with my Lumix F-Z70

Why do many of us have such a fascination with doors...I love this shot, particularly the first. The image itself and the texture is cpativating.

Thanks Lee, there is something about doors, the mystery of what is behind them maybe? I did find this building especially the door to be quite interesting and I will leave no door behind!smile

The texture really shines through in #2.

#2 has much more clarity than #1 which is important to capture the textures.

Thank you Benny,

I was quite pleased with the final result. Used a structure tool edit to bring out the texture.
