Sepia Scenes #3

I thought I'd try a SEPIA portrait today. I cropped the photo very close and then I uploaded it to Photobucket and used the bronze effect. I then moved the FADE slider to the left to lessen the effect quite a bit. I then chose to frame the photo with a black halo. I faded the halo as well.


I think many of you may know that this is my dear grand-nephew. A sweetie-pie, if I say so myself!

Why don't you try a portrait next week. You can take one of your own or find one in your archives.

And I'd love to hear HOW you applied SEPIA to your photo.

Mary, I got the links wrong (twice). I put this week's at the wrong place then last week's for this edition. So what is correct is the second link for today.
I am really sorry. Too much driving today.

So interesting how you applied the effect! And on such a gorgeous young tyke! I posted a portrait today and did the desaturate then added yellow and magenta with color sliders. But I am going to poke around in Photoshop to see if there's something like this bronzing effect. Yes, a definite cutie.

Mmm... portrait? I'm thinking not. Got a thing about publishing people y'know? I love this one though!

Beautiful boy! And I love the effects you've achieved in this portrait.

I just set the camera on sepia and pushed the button this time.

That's a nice editing work on a potrait photo. I will try it on another post.

Btw, I'm using Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo X2. It's lot easier than photoshop.

What a handsome little boy!

I'll have to go and see what I have for portraits...

Hi everybody,
Oh my he is simply adorable. And I love how you used the different techniques.

This is my very first entry and I hope I have done it correctly.

But, please do not ask me what techniques I used.....I just played.

But I have it up here.

I have a very long time near and dear friend who many of us are making a birthday post for tonight.

It is a major project. But, I promise I will get by to visit as many as as possible as soon as possible.

Thank you Mary for starting yet another fun photo meme.

Bintang is the one who told me about it.

Thank s again!!:-)))

Your shots are so creative! But I must admit, the adorable eyes of the little one are almost magnetic in mystical sepia!
