This old building from the 1800's didn't need much to bring out the age to it. I had to get rid of some signs in the window, a stop sign in front and the Harley parked by the side. I enhanced the colors and contrast and adjusted the lighting so the bricks and details would stick out some and then converted it to black and white. A touch of film grain to add age and cover a little of the erased marks blurs and to give the sky some effect as it was completely white when converted to black and white.

I decided to add the original photo to show the things I needed to eliminate for the above shot. I wanted the old building to look as old as it is and all the signs plus modern transportation took away from it.
