    I was at another kind of creepy and haunted looking place today. Apparently it was once a house of ill repute..
    I converted this image to B&W and used a gradient map to split tone it and give a sepia look to the image. The grass was then hand coloured.
    Opinions please on whether or not you think it works..?

    BTW, click on the image for a larger view.

    Here's a glimpse I got of a pretty fantastic (at times) sky above where I was shooting.

    I quite like what you've done with the colour here. Nice simple composition too. I'd quite liek to see a B/W version, or perhaps a heavily desaturated one, with just a hint of colour left.

    Cheers Liquid. I'll give the image a run through Elements 5 again and see what I come up with.

    I have to say that for eeriness which is what I'm trying to convey the desaturated is the one that does it the most for me.
