Have to say that the sepia really does work well. I felt the very first suffered from the sky a little, don't you just hate over-exposed sky? I do, so why do so many of my photos suffer from it? But I digress.

I normally don't like sepia much but it really works very well here. Easily better than the other versions. I really like it!

Hey John,
That has to be one of the nicest compliments I've ever gotten on a photo.
I wish I could take full credit for it, all I did was convert it to sepia, Linda took the shot... from the car window no less!

Great PP on the shot - I also like the sepia effect on this one!

The sepia is my favorite here. You could crop it a little closer and get rid of some of the sky.

Add one more clap of applause for the sepia conversion. I think it's very effective on silhouettes.

Since I started off saying the shot was beyond hope, let me now eat my words. I'm amazed at what a difference it made to convert to B&W, then add the sepia. I never would have guessed it could make such a dramatic difference.
