  2. It does give this nice image an old time look but the yellow cast is not my favorite of the sepia fixes. Personally I like the browns better. Very cute image and I like the crop you have chosen.

    Definite potential there. I like that shot.

    I reckon drop EV by 0.5 stop and add contrast.

    Please repost updated pic - I'd like to see the result, it'll be close.

    cheers,

    C,

    Now thats a keeper mate - frame it.

    I love the overall look and feeling it gives me.

    cheers
     
  7. I think I agree with Gordon. I see a yellowish tinge to the shot. Personal preference but I like the traditional sepia tones a little better. Great shot nonetheless!
     
  8. I'm not a fan of the yellowish tone. Do yourself a favor and try this B&W conversion technique below - it's terrific. I consider it a "chocolate" tone and it has become my standard "near sepia" look. :)

  9. Thanks Joe, I have copied this as well. I always wanted a good chocolate tone conversion method. I will definitely give this a try.
