Sepia Scenes #81




Photobucket

Some not-yet-bloomed tulips that I posted on my other blog in color. I desaturated the color photo, used Channel Mixer to get the sepia color I wanted, then laid on a gradient layer, and used a black vignette that I reduced quite a bit.

Sign Mr. Linky and leave a comment. Go around to visit other sepia shots by your fellow bloggers.

~TAKE NOTE~
Next week I'll display a few of your posts for Sepia Scenes right here on my blog.

the lack of color is ever bit as pretty as the color (?)

You are truly an artist with photos! Love it!

The tulips will open up this upcoming warm weekend. Perhaps the sepia bulbs will bloom in pure color under the strong Spring sun...

Sepia tulips have a very romantic feel to them.

The tulips make an intersting effect beside the strict squared wall - the effect suits sepia vey good :)
