I shot these today at the famous Princeton Battlefield - the exact location where on January 3, 1777 General Washington's revolutionary forces battled the British army.

Thank you Linda!Superbly treated...looks so real
Thanks - you should have heard that cannon - it was way LOUD!Very cool. That first shot is great. Nice processing on all of them.
Thank you Dianne! :smile:Wonderful captures! Love the way you antiqued them too! WOW, I'd love to see something like that some day!
Thanks Mark. Not really - I took me about 15 minutes to get the look that I wanted on the first one. After that, maybe 5 mins each work on the other two. Just a bunch of texture layers - it's a fairly straight forward really.These are terrific, Fred! Looks like a lot of PP time involved.
Very creative, looks authentic.
that is an awesome job of shooting and post-processing
thanks for sharing them with us
Thanks Tim! 3-4 texture layers are added to each image. I then use blend modes/layer opacity and masking to selectively erase to taste. You will find some more details here.Great Shots, Fred!
Do you mind sharing your editing techniques.
Thanks Paul!That sepia treatment really works wonders on these. Well done.
Thanks for the nice comment Mario.Once of the best "aged photo" treatments that I have ever seen, and the subject matter is appropriate for the effect as well. Well done.
Thank you Kap.Great post process work. Very good stuff.
Thank you Amber. I left some tips on the editing in my response to Tim. Hope that gets you going - I not really too complex.Wow... I'd love to know your editing techniques as well. This series is absolutely amazing. They look so authentic.
Thanks Mike. These are a lot of fun to do.I never said I wanted a revolution. :biggrin: But I'm glad others before me did.
I have a photo that was made about 50 years after the birth of photography. It has a couple obvious flaws, very much like the flaws you "put" into your images. You did a marvelous job. I am in awe.
Thank you Jim!Not sure what to say Fred; they look authentic... Great job!
Thanks Mitch. Yea the glue on the box is starting to fail - it's making the images all funky and stuff - need to get that fixed! :biggrin:Nicely done!!
Funny how those old cameras vignette.
