Default Civil War Encampment

I visited a Civil War encampment in nearby Bardstown, KY with my Nikon P-90. Antique effect was done with Photoscape.

There is real and there is REAL. I think these are REAL. Great job in keeping each picture completely in the moment. Excellent post work giving it that old screwed up photo look. I hope you kept a copy of each shot prior to adding the damage. They would make an excellent Before and After to try to sell your talents.

Thanks very much for your kind words, Bynx. I did, indeed, keep a copy of the originals. However, I'm a avowed hobbyist. I've screwed up two of my passions by "going pro". I'm not going to let that happen again.

Here's a couple of B/A shots for you.

Seeing your After and Before shots I realize how much I took for granted and how far you went from the original to the final. I was going to ask you to tell us what you did but personally, although I like what you have done, I dont think I would ever do it myself.

It's easier than it looks. Using Picasa, I did the sepia. Using Photoscape, I antiqued 'em. Piece o' cake and both free programs.
