I find myself particularly attracted by the texture and tonality in this shot. There's plenty too look at here, yet the picture is not too 'busy'.

Good job aging this photo! Nice contrast and tone.

Well this is a pleasant surprise. I finished voting on this challenge a few days back and here's another pic out of the blue.

I really think this is excellent work. Nice use of toning and subtle yet effective dodging and burning to achieve a very nostalgic look. I particularly like the way ivy on the right side stands out nicely. 8

Lovely black and white. The way you did this reflects on the antique feeling of the place.

I might try tweaking the contrast a tiny bit more to bring out more detail in the wood. I also wonder how it would look as a "warmer" duotone, although this looks plenty old too.

Great use of B+W. I know contrast can be hard and you nail it. One of my top pics for sure.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/21/2005 08:42:07 PM
interesting shot. love the tones, but think it would have a better feel if it was a bit grainier. i don't know why, but it seems just a bit too smooth. hope it does well for you. good luck!

I like this one alot throw some torn edges on it and it would look like a old photo.....8

This so clearly has the look of a hyper-active dodge tool that it's bound to be just real. It has a really odd sensation of being tilted to the right a touch, although it's an optical illusion, checking with the edges of a window - but it's one that won't go away, for me, and adds a weird dynamic to it: can't work out what's causing it.

Beautiful shot, for sure.

Really nice, old vintage feel to this photo. Really nice contrast here. One (very minor) thing, I would rotate CCW maybe .5 degrees. It's just slightly tilted to the right. Nice shot!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

that dodge and burn must have taken a while

lovely image, but no x factor, maybe lacks a focal point, or maybe its unbalanced, somethings not quite right.
Too busy.
better ask an expert. 7
