Sepia Scenes #62



Hey my friends we have Sepia Scenes again today!






This is a World War I soldier that stands over a World War I memorial in a St Michael's cemetery near me. I thought I'd show you what the color photo looks like so you can compare the sepia shot to it. The angle of the shot is such because the statue stands about 15 feet in the air and of course I'm looking up.

Sign Mr. Linky and leave a comment for today. And please visit you fellow participants. We all love comments! :)

I like the grainy look and texture of the statue in Sepia. A wonderful subject as well.

Hi Mary, The grainy texture enhances an already moody image. That it is from WW I makes sepia even more elegant in its use.

I can never see one of those WWI helmets and not think of that song "Bell Boy" by The Who which for years I thought was "Doughboy".

One of life's embarrassing moments when I discovered I'd been singing it wrong since 1973.

Wonderful rough texture of the statue and it looks great in sepia. I like how the camera angle worked out with the tree in the background.

Hi Mary - love your selected color nutcracker in your header, and the contrast between the color & sepia images of the soldier statue!
My image this week is another from Walt Disney World ~ hope you enjoy!
Cheers,

Thanks for the comments Mary. I came over to investigate Sepia Scenes and thought why not? Why not link the sepia portrait. So here I am.

I've been doing a bit of experimenting with sepia toning. The impetus came from my work with the portrait that I just linked.

I did another portrait this morning. Might be a good one for next week.

I enjoy doing tutorials and have posted a few on scanning B&W negatives. I could do one on the way I approach sepia toning. That is, once I understand what I'm doing. LOL

Grainy look of the picture is perfect. And the angle of the shot is perfect for the subject matter. You are at a memorial, so shooting upwards for that "hero" shot is very important.
