This is excellent. I like the way the warm sepia tones contrast with the cold, wet subeject matter. Great framing and background also.

This really has an old time feel to it. Nice job.

Very nice angle to this image. The thick border is a little distracting but the expression on their face is to die for!

good focus and clarity; I think sepia doesn't fit here too well, this would work better with a blueish tint or in muted color (I understand this couldn't have been entered here)

This really caught my eye, I like it a lot. The lighting and everything is really nice. I think the only thing that could have made it a little better would be if it were sprinkling on her.

I like the shot and I love the angle it was taken. I don't think that Sepia complements this image though. I think this would be much better served as greyscale or heavily desaturated.

Nice work. Too bad you cannot add an overlay in basic editing as I think an overlay to look like paper crackles across it would really make this look like an old faded b/w sepia

Nice composition, and the tilt works really well. I also like how the subject is darker that the background, and so pops out. Well done!

i like the clarity of the girl but wish the background was a bit more out of focus, if i have the terminology right, more DOF would be good or a bit less to distract in the background, 5
