I decided that instead of clicking convert to sepia I would learn to do it myself. My first attempts.

Cool, No 1 really looks the time with the engineer in his overalls.

Gives the pics a completely different look from the colour originals.

Great sepia shots. I love old locomotives and have several shots too. .. Jim

Very good Roger. They are so sharp though that they look new.

Very nice, but I think you should soften them up just a bit to go with the sepia look. Sometimes shooting in RAW and not sharpening at all will do the job.

Roger, I agree with Tom. Those are beautiful shots and everything is as clean as a whistle. I really like the one on the bridge. However to make it look like a train in 1920 it needs to beroughed up a bit. I've seen model railroaders make their trains look old with paint and other things, so I wonder if you could do it with a picture? On the other hand thecomposition and the quality of the photos is really excellent, so maybe there is no reason to mess with it?

Great photo's Roger, especially with the Sepia tone.

Looks like something out of that old, top quality TV Western Tales Of Wells Fargo starring Dale Robertson !!

I like them just as they are - the sepia suits the topic, and it doesn't bother me that they are so sharp, cool shots.

Very nice Roger, the sepia works very well with the train as a subject. I like #1 and #3 the best. Out of curiousity, how was did your manual conversion to spepia differ from the "one click" method? Did you compare output side by side?
