Sepia Scenes #54

We're posting early so that our global friends can post at a decent hour around the world.

So welcome to
SEPIA SCENES for October 28/29/2009.

I took photographs of a couple of beautiful red roses this past weekend. The day was rainy so the roses were dripping in raindrops.

I used Adobe Photoshop 7 to create both these sepia effects. I used regular Variations on the top photo and modified the color to enhance the raindrops. I used Curves to enhance the bronzing effect of the bottom photo.

Sepia Scenes #53

Today we start Sepia Scenes! You can post today and tomorrow. We start today so that our friends across the globe can post at a decent hour. My sepia posts are two of my favorite photos of lighthouses.

Huntington (Lloyd Harbor) Lighthouse

I took both of these shots from the shore using my Canon point-and-shoot at 10x zoom.

Sepia Scenes #52

Hi again, it's Sepia Scenes day again! Over the weekend the girl across the street got married and she had a picture taking session in her front yard. This is one of the pictures I took and I thought doing it up in sepia would be pretty. I gave the photo a pink tone and blurred it once to soften it.

Here's the photo in color below just so you could see the color of the dresses she chose. The color is called "amethyst."

I'm looking forward to your sepia posts! Don't forget to sign Mr. Linky and leave a comment. Spend a little time, won't you? visiting you fellow sepia sceners.

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.
