Yay! At least one person thought it was Ben's! And Ben likes it! :-)

So far, five favs in voting. Thanks very much!!

The original:

Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_960169.jpg

I was shooting with the jpeg set to B&W - this is simply resized. When compared to the entry, the sepia should be apparent, though I do realize when compared to other entries, it looked a lot less sepia.

Thanks for all the kind comments and favs!!

Beautiful work. It's an instant fave to me! It's perfect for Sephia. The added warmth adds a whole other feel to the shot.

wonderful processing in muted sepia. Much better than the original BW that was very good to begin with :)

I was just thinking how it sucks that the Ben challenge came just after you had done so well with this one. I also just realised this is the 4th comment I've made on this image, so maybe you have figured I like it.

Stunning photo, but whether it's sepia is another question, seems to have more black to grey tones, than brown.
