Once again I decided to go with the a nature photo for this week's Sepia Scenes. The original photo did not have much color as the subject was mostly tan and brown/black in real life so the sepia tones seemed to fit well.
Mary suggested we tell about how we applied the sepia to the photo. I'm not sure of the exact steps as I did this photo a couple of weeks ago, but I'm fairly certain I cropped it, converted it to black and white, and then applied sepia. I likely adjusted the fill light, highlights, and/or shadow just a small bit to balance the contrasts.
I primarily use Picasa3 for most of my editing which normally includes just cropping, light adjustments, and perhaps a small bit of sharpening at times. I did add a small amount of edging (from another program) to off-set it from the frame which was added in Blogger.
