I just followed what was done in the workshop and made some minor changes to the steps follwed in it. It turned out like this. I think it looks almost dream like now and much prefer it to the original.
Another taken at the farm. I went back and took a whole other set. Not sure if I am as happy with these. But here ya go anyway :-)

I like the composition ad the colors are tasty, but I'm not sure if I like the softening. I miight have preferred a bit less softening, but still it's an image that suites softening...
ANYWAY it's a good photograph!

I vote yes on the softening, and I think it is a great improvement over the original.

Beautiful...very dreamlike after the gaussian blur!

Geat shot. Softness makes it unreal as you said. I love the blue of the sky. Nice work.
ninadev (5377) 2003-09-15 20:37
Ahhhh! nice. You did a lot of improvement on that one, with the suggestion of our good friend who posted a WS. My kind of shots, with bright colors, nice details and a lot of character. I knew there was something great about this picture, just needed a little work. Very well done Heather.

I love the softness and the colours in this one. Great!

belle composition de cette fermette placée sur la droite de l'image et l'arbre qui occupe la gauche ; les couleurs sont très poétiques et bucoliques avec ce ciel bleu d'une intense pureté quasi fantastique.
bravo Heather, pour ce travail pictural très agréable et un peu surréaliste !

Hi cosyCloud, this is really a beautifull place. La petite maison dans la prairie;
I wish I had a little house like this, it even has electricity, (but no chimney, how come?) and nice big trees around. The colors are great. It must be early automn, what we call "Indian summer"

MARVELOUS! amazing.. i have no words for this one-just, p.s. what steps did you follow to get such brilliant results???

A definição desta imagem e espetacular, assim como o enquadramento e as cores com saturação natural. E um belissimo trabalho Heather.

I want to live in this house. So real the picture i can feel this sensation. Great show.
danarees (2502) 2005-01-31 23:06
I really really like this shot. Did I mention that I really like this shot, the color and the soft texture give it, well, an impressionist look. Great job.

j'aime beaucoup l'ambiance de cette photo .. cote "petite maison dans la prairie"
Sinon beau cadrage, juste les couleurs un peu trop saturées à mon gout.
patrickb (76) 2006-06-24 5:43
Hi, good composition, I like the textured feeling you have managed to capture, however I think it could have done with less softening.
pari_ali (433) 2007-01-30 23:47
Ok I like it much better than the original version, it looks almost like a painting trees and grass painted with a feather brush.
jjbzippy (65) 2007-02-23 15:56
very cool photo, I like what you have done to it giving it the hazy look, lots of strong vibrant colours, favorite member of mine garnetgirl has a very similar shot its titled the old workshop you should check it out.

Have you ever seen only one part of the Little House on The Praire TV series?:D
Your nice picture totally resembles for that.

My eyes got the attention of your photos as featured upon opening the site. The colours are somehow different from the ordinary. I like it the way it is, doesn't need softnening at all, the image softenes our imagination into a dream...
All the best!

Nostalgia.or melancholic ...This small house seems lost and abandoned..these two trees , of different colour are the guardians and waiting for ..........someone.
