I'm back as a participant! =)

I'm back as a participant this week for edit me! Last week, I judged and that was a really hard job! It was neat to see how different people have such different styes of editing and I loved seeing my photo in so many unique ways! I think I'd much rather just be editing! =)
This very picturesque scene was taken by Jill at Jill Samter Photography.
Jill has a beautiful site definitely check it out if you haven't already! 

I just when back in my folder and counted the edits I did of this photo and there are a total of 6! There was so much I wanted to do with this photo and it's SO hard to decide.

Below is the before and after shot from Lightroom.
I tried a few presets, but decided to just manually edit first! The sky was so blue and I didn't want to lose that.
Here are my settings in LR for the photo above. I think it's a nice clean, fresh edit...
but I wanted to do a little more. So I tried some of these things below.

  
I really like each of them, but decided on the one below to enter in the challenge.
It's still nice and clean, but has a vintage look which suits the subject very well! (in my opinion)

Using the photo from LR above I imported it into CS5 and simply ran Paint the Moon's "Vintage Fairytale" and "Pop It On the Spot". I used Pop It On the Spot to make sure there were defined edges between the silos, the roof and the sky. I also brushed it on the stone and the window of the barn! I really LOVE this photo.
What do you think?

Be sure to check out other great edits!
