Sepia Scenes # 51


My apologies to all our Sepia Sceners from around the globe who've have been waiting today to participant in Sepia Scenes and to sign Mr. Linky. I've been distracted of late. But here's my Sepia Scenes post that I got up as soon as Mojo reminded me!


I went through the steps for Half Sepia to get the results you see above.

The sculpture is called Three Graces by Charles Carey Rumsey

Come join us by posting a Sepia Scenes posting and then signing Mr. Linky and leaving a comment. Don't forget to visit your fellow participants.

An enchanting example of the "Three Graties".
Both the way you're angling the shot and the half sepia editing of your photo are new and challenging to me.
I know I shall have to try someday.

That's wonderful editing. I experimented myself with sepia and color in a single image.
Great shot-

Hi Mary,
I've been distracted too! I posted my sepia shot early in the day then forgot to come back to link it. Busy week...

I really like the half-sepia editing in this lovely statue.

P.S. my word verification is actually a word today: peril

We all get busy, it's ok. I hope everything is Ok. Interesting photo. It almost looks like it was some wild party. Just kidding. It's a lovely photo!

That's a very interesting effect for "half sepia" and a lovely sharp photo full of charm and rich appeal. Using it for the "Three Graces", which is a subject often drawn or painted in art classes, reminds me of the "trois crayons" technique I've used in many an art class.

That means (From about.com): "Definition: Literally 'with three pencils', 'aux trois crayons' technique is a traditional style of drawing using black, red (sanguine) and white chalk, often on a tinted (cream) paper. The white allows crisp, precise highlights while the red adds a touch of warmth, with the black giving rich darks. These colors also meant that, with the creamy paper, skin tones in the drawing have warmth and life."

Hi Mary, I don't know what I was thinking..I did my sepia scenes post a day early.

I'll be OK
