Just fooling around in photoshop and came up with these

first one is a photo taken on our harbor of a sailing yacht, second is a vacant shed taken on my courier run.

I like sepia photos, they give the picture kind a look of ´old times´. But these two I do not like very much. In this case I would prefer natural colors.

What kind of trees are in the background, behind the shed, Julie? I always seem to think Africa and giraffes when I see that kind of sihlouette. Nice work with your camera. You must be putting a few miles on it by now. That's the great thing about digital, costs next to nothing for all the practice you want. Nice to see your posts...Best regards,

reason for going sepia: the colors on these shots were terrible, washed out, no blue skys, overcast looking. This was just a play around with what I could do with them.

Nice ones Julie.

You said that you used photoshop to convert them into sepia,why not just shot them in sepia strait from the camera, unless you don't have that option on your cam?

Most of digital camera now give the choise of color, B&Wand sepia, isn't it?

These were taken with Drebel and I dont think a DSLR can do that, although my G3 did, I never used that option. It is much easier to convert a color photo and keep the color, have B/W, sepia or whatever else you choose. Shooting in color gives you all options where as shooting in B/W or sepia you are stuck with it.:-)
