Sepia Scenes# 39

Welcome! Here are some of the Sepia Scenes thumbnails from last week that were particularly good:

Left to right: Karen, Judi, Elaine Ling, Eyad, Felisol

Something different this week: I colored the sepia photo and then posterized it a little.



I liked coloring the dress and the hair and adding a little posterization. Nice effect don't you think?

Sometimes taking a picture of a picture comes out real nice!

Sign Mr. Linky and leave comments okay?

Don't forget to visit everyone!

Great choice of pictures from last week Mary!

And I really like your shots.
I don't know where Mr Linky is for the moment so I put me link here and go back in a few.

Happy Sepia Scenes!

Annie said...

Here is my offering this week. I'll keep checking for Mr. Linky. He is misbehavin' again.

Your sepia this week is really beautiful. I'm going to pull out my photo tinting pens again. The results are always stunning.

Mr. Linky is AWOL again around the blogosphere, but thanks for featuring Eyad's sepia portrait of his brother here!
Today @ Purrchance To Dream, I have my favorite furry sepia subject, Daphne, is a portrait that I really enjoyed making.
After sepia-izing the photo, I used the Orton-ish effect on it, and really liked the outcome.
I'm having a blast playing with pics on Picnik/Flickr ~ especially sepia-izing 'em!
Have great day,

Cool photo. Nice touch with the coloring and effects.

Here's mine: Is that a camera in your pocket?

Mojo said...

That Mr. Linky... he needs a stern talking-to.

Lovely choices -- i was especially fond of Elaine's from last week. And I really like the image you chose for this week!

A picture of a picture - now that's an idea!
I love the processing Mary!
I think I'd like her in red. I'm imagining the work behind her in shades of red and brown. But I'm thinking there could be purple in that pattern. :)
You make things so much fun Mary!Hope you're feeling much better.

My post is up and I'll check back for the elusive Mr. Linky.

Terri said...

Very cool shots Mary - I like the effect.

Mr. Linky is still off on break. Here's my sepia post.

Felisol said...

Dear Teach Mary,
Nothing in my p-shop about posterization.
Have to ask Gunnar...
The ballerina, so slim and elegant is perfect in blue silk. Definitely 100% delicious silk.
Hope you have a quick recovery from that dental operation.
It sounded scary.

I was late commenting.
Summer guests arrived just as I was posting my sepia.
Thanks for posting my picture.
As you will see the "glory" is not mine alone.
From Felisol

I think that the overall form of the dancer is best shown in the sepia. The louder colors of blue and yellow distract us from the dancer's style. The attention thus can be paid to the artist and her artistry...

Actually, I like the "feel" of both phtos! Extraordinary how different a photo can be just by adding or removing a splash of colour!

Here is my post for this week!

Dreaming on the Moon on a Winter's Afternoon

Hope you are feeling much better now!

judi said...

Wow! I really do like that a lot.
yeah, Mr. Linky is still blinky.
I visit from here I guess. :D

onangelwings said...

I love that photo! So cool with the colorization.

Napaboaniya APAD said...

She's so graceful. Adding colors to her hair and dress gives it a complete fresh feel :)

I see Mister Linky is on strike once again..we can deal with that :)
Here's my link

It won't let me leave the link here, sorry

I loved Eyad's shot from last week, that is really beautiful

You and Daryl are really making me want to go back and once more try my hand at learning Photoshop

Jennifer said...

I always loved monotone pictures with some colour added.

I don't see Mr Linky, so I'm guessing it's still on the fritz! My Sepia Scenes post is up - Swing by & check it out!

I'm gonna have to check out posterization

Jeri said...

Love what you did with your sepia shot! No Mr. Linky so mine is here

Jouko said...

My Sepia Scene :)

hip chick said...

I like the way this looks. I often think sepia photo's look better with just a bit of color in them.

foto CHIP Sweden said...

The colour makes the photo look even more exciting :)

Jew Wishes said...

Lovely photo choices!

Mr. Linky is having his problems. :)

JunieRose2005 said...

Some things just look better this way! :)

Come see what I put on! :)


Patti said...

Hi Mary

NicoleB said...

That's one heck of a cool effect.
Nice job :D!

And I love your pics, especially the portrait of the young man.
