Inquiring minds want to know, is that really an antique picture or a Photoshop antique picture? I ask the question since I noticed the question of how to create an antique looking photo in Photoshop in one of the other forums.

I took that photo a few days ago

I was just practicing what I had learnt. Maybe it's not ideal for this challenge but the tree looked old anyway.

Yeah. I never thought of that. I should have looked at some genuine old photos first to get a better idea.

haha, i was 'hired' to try to fix a photo for my friends..

if you go perfectly straight across..it would be unrealistic though..cuz it's hard to get a piece of paper folded perfectly :-p

keep it up man..this is great stuff :-D

I think this is brilliant -the subject & style of the photograph so lend themselves to being aged, and I think you aged it really well. Plus, what an incredible tree!

I liked it as soon as I saw it. It seemed to have character.
Here is the original. I took the photo at a motorway service area in Scotland last week with my new Casio EX-Z750
