Vintage

Our theme for Photo Art Friday this week is to edit an image for a vintage piece of art look.  Maybe not a piece of art but surely it is vintage looking.  Reminds me of something out of "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid".  Actually it's a building in "Oldtown" San Diego.  The original first......
After cropping to get rid of the structure in the foreground and cloning out the shadow, I desaturated it a bit and added Bonnie's "age it" texture.  I removed some of the texture on the building.  I simplified and  duplicated that layer using a  soft light blend.  I then added a Nelly Nero action called "antique overlay" and the text.  Lastly I added the photo corner frame from PicMonkey.
I'm happy with the results and maybe it does look like a piece of art.
Linking with

and encouraging you to visit Bonnie's linky party to see more vintage artwork.

What a wonderful transformation, Marilyn. It really seems like we are looking back in time. The corner photo holders add the perfect finishing touch. Thanks for sharing the edits you made and for sharing your artwork with Photo Art Friday.
