Edit Me: Week 17

I haven't participated in an Edit Me challenge in quite a while, and I miss it!! So I finally decided to buckle down and jump back in.  Each week's challenge closes on Saturday, so I'm cutting it a bit close (it's currently 9:17pm on Saturday), but hey, at least I'm getting it done. :)

Here is the SOOC:

And here is my edit:

I did most of my editing in Camera Raw. First I cropped the picture to give it more of a landscape feel and to focus more on the barn. I also straightened it slightly. I used the Vintage Portrait preset from Pretty Presets. I then increased the fill light, lowered the exposure, and increased the hue a bit on the reds. I also added a slight vignette. After these edits, I opened the image in Photoshop to apply just a bit of sharpening and add my watermark.

My initial plan for the photo didn't include as much of a blue/purple hue, but once I saw it I decided I liked it. :)

Be sure to check out the other edits over at My Reflection of Something!
