Sepia Scenes #6




Photobucket

This is a photo from many years back, the 1990s. A robin laid these eggs in a nest she built on my backyard fence. I scanned the color picture and used Photobucket Online to get the sepia effect. The in Adobe Photoshop I colorized one of the eggs blue.



I want to wish everyone

A VERY HAPPY THANKSGIVING, GOOD EATS, AND HAPPY FAMILY MEMORIES!

Just gorgeous Mary. One of these days, I'll have the proper software to create with this great technique.

Thanks Mary for your visit. In fact I didn't colorize myself but used a softer setting caled "antique" which doesn't change the photo quite as much.

That's so cool! I love spot color, but I never thought about doing it in a sepia image.

A wallflower? Or just

Hi Mary! I like how you live out that egg into blue:) Nice one!

Leora said...

I love the way you colorized one egg blue. Happy Thanksgiving.

Robin said...

That blue is so striking against the sepia. I've always had a thing for Robin's Egg Blue myself ;-).

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Risa said...

I love the way the color stands out. I am going to have to try to figure out if I can do something like that.

The blue is such as an attraction.

Happy Thanksgiving to all you, too!

How appropriate...I don't know why I haven't joined before. I love scenes done in sepia.

The dominant sepia tones plus feathered colour and strong blue of the egg create a fascinating, unique phot! Beautiful!

Oh Mary it is truly beautiful. I wish I had PS to do everything like you do.

Well maybe someday. I am very very late. My PC was down completely until mid day yesterday.

Oh my Mary you do such wonderful work. I love the one blue egg and it looks like you could reach right in and pick it up.

The coloring is perfect.

Happy Thanksgiving!!:-)

Ohhh, how lovely!!
I know there is an option on my Corel Paint Shop to do this, but I haven't tried it yet. Maybe I should, it's gorgeous!
The things you show us Mary, awesome!
Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your loved ones!

Great editing, Mary - very creative, especially the re-coloring. I also like the idea to scan an "old" photo. :-)

Jan said...

Very cool. I keep thinking I should get PS, but I resist because I don't want to spend more time learning it.

Ladynred said...

Julie said...

Beautiful shot. I am just learning how to do that and really like how well you've mastered it. Gives me something to strive for.
