Sepia Scenes #56



Hi everyone! Welcome back to Sepia Scenes!

I took these shots on a trip to Sleepy Hollow, N.Y. The top one is through the cat tails toward the Tappen Zee Bridge. The bottom is the Tarrytown/Sleepy Hollow Lighthouse just north of the bridge.






I applied Half Sepia to both these photos and see how different the effects are?

Please sign Mr. Linky, comment and visit your fellow bloggers. Thanks, my dear friends!

I love the half color.

Annie said...

I really like the half sepia effect. And, I especially like the proximity of the bridge to the lighthouse.

Felisol said...

The half colored, red bottomed light house was weird, standing with its fet in the water.
As always; original pictuer\\res with food for thoughts.

The Hudson River fjord is beautiful, the more-than-mile-wide body of water a salt water gem. The Tappan Zee is a beauty to behold (not so much fun to drive to Rockland County - a replacement is needed ASAP). That said, as the Hudson is navigable for ships for many of its 307 miles, the lighthouses are sure to be plentiful. And you have captured the essence of the river with its sepia grasses, too. Nice!

Patti said...

The grasses work well in sepia.

I especially like the red lighthouse shot with the half sepia effect.

Happy Sepia Scenes!

Mine is up and I don't know why my sepia turns out like reddish in color? I change the original color to sepia at photobucket website ^_^

I like the color mixed in with the sepia. Sometimes it works and this is the time. MB

Robin said...

Great shots, but no, not much fun to drive with all the traffic.

Did I hear a while back that it was being upgraded? I grew up in Rockland, not all that far from that bridge, but now that my folks moved away I haven't been back in years.

The half sepis tone is looking great. It's always fun experimenting with all the different functions of photo software. We never know what surprise it will lead us to :)

I love the photo with the bridge and the lighthouse. It's very striking with the red colour.

These are beautiful photos, Mary! I'm joining Sepia Scenes for the first time, and I'm going to learn how to do the Half Sepia from your post. That's interesting..
