The Lyrics:
http://www.songlyrics.com/rosemary-clooney/this-ole-house-lyrics/

This old house once knew my children
This old house once knew my wife
This old house was home and shelter as we fought the storms of life
This old house once rang with laughter
This old house heard many shouts
Now she trembles in the darkness when the lightnin' walks about

Ain't gonna need this house no longer
Ain't gonna need this house no more
Ain't got time to fix the shingles
Ain't got time to fix the floor
Ain't got time to oil the hinges
Nor to mend the window pane
Ain't gonna need this house no longer
I'm getting ready to meet the saints

    Franz: No, you are correct - that's exactly how I imagined you'd look :-)))

    Cogratulations Michael! A great double win. Very well done!
As to challenge 98, I think I did not use any post-processing on my Self Portrait... does it look like?
:D ;-)

    Interesting and effective choice of the yellowish vignette. Good choice to include lyrics! This was my #1, (as I assume it was for many others). Congrats!

    Thanks for the great comments. Always appreciated and suggestions noted. I shot this after we had driven through two days of torrential rain. It just stopped raining as we got to the this farm but the air was heavy and humid. As Avan said, it was impossible to see this house without taking a picture. I would have liked to get closer but the ground was way too wet. The result was a dull, soft and flat photo with no depth. I tried many treatments to give it some life but found this green Tea filter worked best. I'm glad it appealed to some.

    Photo and song are a match made in heaven. I like the composition, the vignette, and the soft coloration you have chosen.

    Very nicely shot and processed - especially like the vignette and subtle color. would be an even better fit with the next theme!

    Beautiful picture and I like that song very much. Two color picture suits here. In my favorites.

    In my favs although the image could be sharper or better focused. The aged effect could be a more subtle with less of the greenish-yellow tinge. The subject would be great for the next challenge as well.

    It would not be possible to see this house and not take a picture. It could have been the cover photo for the Rosemary Clooney album.

    Great find and well shot. Sepia is very effective. Trying to decide about the vignette.

    cookiejar - It's always nice to get your support :-)
Robert - Many thanks
Thivi - Thanks. It's a super quick filter from Topaz Adjust called Green Tea. One of my favourites.
Franz - Thank you. Always good to hear from you. I can see why you prefer less post-processing, If I got the result that you did in challenge 98 Self Portrait, I would probably never use it again hahaha

    Nice song and great motif.
I prefer less postprocessing, but still in my top ten

Thivi

    Very nice composition and beautiful processing (is it silverEfex with Antique Plate II filter ?)

    Perfect for the challenge. I love the vignetting and the sepia treatment. High in my favs.
