Anyone know how to get sepia in PS please?

Is the cropping making it better?

An old saying is, a picture can be like a thousand words

but it often takes a few words of explanation to start it off.


eg #1. This is a motor cycle graveyard with no headstones.

or Are you looking for spare parts?... etc etc

the picture you use very much depends on whatever it is you

want to say or ask.... You're asking 'which picture is better?'.

:? Depends on how you want to use it...........musket

ps. From a photographic point of view.. I think they're all good pictures.

I think that if you were to crop it more on the top and have more motorcycle and less background it would be better. I would think the Triumph logo should be the center of attention, so maybe one headlight, as in #3, but more below it and less above it.

By the way, I have been posting on the Pentax forum and this is my first foray into this one. I will post a few later on.
