    I'm working on a project to take some photos of past work my grandpa has built. This house I always said looked like the Adam's family house. So I thought it would be cool if it could be edited to make it appear spooky. If someone would like to help I would appreciate it. Thanks!

    There's room for Donald Trump's head on the left. That would scare me... :p

    Strictly speaking this isn't editing, it's either manipulation or compositing.

    BUT ANYWAY... I'll give it a shot. I'm not a compositor but I'd like to see how far I can take it. Someone else with more experience will likely beat me to it but whatever, I'll still give it a shot!

    I tried the HDR plugin in aperture but the bricks got too bright. I did like the clouds however. Just seeing what some others can come up with...

    Thanks. It was seriously a 5min edit. The masking on the sky isnt that great. The sidewalk could have been made reflective with water as well. I think a more dramatic sky would be cooler too.

    Very Subtle

    Lol....very good stuff going on here, wish I had the time to have a go too. Can someone drop the house into a spooky background so that it doesn't stand out so much?

    I like these but there needs to be some smudging to soften those house borders. I'm not at my home computer right now but it can be easily done.
