I was going through some older files a few days back to try and find something to apply some new processing ideas to. This picture was taken last year. I have driven by this abandoned house many times and finally I found the owner of the property to ask permission to take same photographs. He kindly obliged and later that week my wife and I spent part of one evening taking different shots of the place.
In the image below, I desaturated the colors, increased clarity and added some highlight detail to the edges. I feel this gives the image an older watercolor feel. Click on it for a better look.
