Sepia Scenes #98

What I thought I would do today is list the suggestions made by our Sepia Scenes participants and let you vote for one of them as our special 100th post on September 15 (I said September 8th but our 100th post will be on September 15th!)

Our great participant Sepia Scenes bloggers suggested the following:

1. a 100-themed post. Photo of a 100 things (pennies, bottle caps, etc.) or something that equals 100 such as a dollar which equals a hundred pennies. (posted by Aoife.Troxel)

2. a Love-theme in sepia. (suggested by by Jeff campbell)

3. a photo we too 100 weeks ago converted into sepia. (suggested by EG WOW)

4. a macro self-portrait: our eyes, lips, hands, etc. in sepia (suggested by Lui)

5. variations on a theme (that I would give you) (suggested by Kramer)

Next week I will give you the idea/theme and then you'll post you photo in sepia the week after that...

Please vote in the comments.

Here's my sepia shot for today...

Josh made balloon animals at the Carnival. This one, two love birds in a heart, he made for me. I colored the balloon by opening the color photo, adding a duplicate layer and then using the erasure tool to bring up the red again.

Great shot and photo editing!

Heather T. said...

Oooooh, Mary, I like the red! Don't you just love the ability to edit like that, pulling out the color?!!

Anyway, I like the idea of 100 items in sepia tone, so that would be number 1 for me :)

First time here! I love the pic with the balloon! Don't you just love being able to edit pictures and make a certain item, etc. stand out? Lots of great ideas, but I think I have to go with number 1. :)

EG Wow said...

I LOVE this, MaryT!

Well, I'm going to vote for #3 because I have an archive. But I'm really OK with anything that gets chosen.

Pialotta said...

Anki said...

It's up to you, Mary -it's your meme! Not everyone has macro though...

I'm having problems getting into Mr. Linky (blenza keeps popping up, but the one who loaded things on, put roboform on my new computer,
and I don't know how to add new sites via roboform)

Jeannette,
Just to say to say, I think I fixed it:) Happy Thursday!

Lui said...

Hi Mary, I love how you can edit sepia with color!

I think I'll go with what you decide for our 100th! ;-)

I love the way you do that with the color! I've never tried to do it!

I have a sepia this time!
