Sepia Scenes #65





This is a piece of art that I saw in an Italian restaurant on New Year's Day. I thought it would look great with a sepia tone, so here it is.

See the original photo below:



It's also very beautiful.



Please visit your fellow Sepia Scenes posters. We're all proud of our posts and would like others to see them. :)

You were right! It does lend itself rather well to sepia toning. Nice piece of work either way though.

Both the original and the sepia version are beautiful! :)

The beauty of this subject is the complexity of materials. Maybe it is one, but I see bamboo, with copper sheathing and tin. The myriad details are stunning and I see a depth all around. Nice in either view, the sepia tone makes it look even richer. Nice choice of subjects!

Both look wonderful but I love the splash of color in the original.

They are lovely both. Suitable in sepia.

Very interesting tile. Looks good both ways. MB

It was almost sepia before conversion. I do like the colors in the color print--but the plate lends itself well to sepia.

Very beautiful! but I think the original shows more details like the aging in the verdigris or am I mistaken. Gorgeous picture.

Love you 'sepia scenes' bench icon - very creative with the lettering!
And your sepia-ized art is great, love the relief textures in it.
I have a blue-tinted sky sepia scene today ~ of the beach (wish there was a warm beach out there today to go take pictures)!

Kris said...

Beautiful! I agree with casasosegado, though, the original might be just as lovely. Great picture.

Interesting piece of artwork and it works well in sepia tone. Was it hanging on the wall?

Interesting wall detail. I like it a lot better in sepia.

I like the little touch of colors in the original, but it also looks great in sepia!
