    I took this the other day. I like it, but feel I could have used a little bit wider DOF. What do you think?

    Yeah, it's definitely a little soft. I would've stepped back a few metres too.

    I think with some PP work it'd look great... you mind if I take a stab at it?

    total of 9 adusting layers.....
    [​IMG]
    from top to bottom
    9. solid black layer set to overlay, then masked out just to give the sky a darker look
    8. is for the toning, fill layer with color a66703 then set to hue
    7. curves layer set blending to luminosity
    6. contrast layer
    5. duplicate of the orig layer, added a gaussian blur filter, then masked off the barn, and the top of the tree line, then dropped the opacity of my brush to 50% and did the rest, and set the blending mode to multiply
    4. gradient fill for the sky again
    3. gradient fill for the grass, blending mode set to saturation, and used a green color for the fill
    2. duplicate of orig layer, filter, smart sharpen then masked it off so it would just apply to the barn
    1. original layer... random dodging and burning.

    I know that the same results could have been achieved in less steps.... I have a weird workflow.
