Nice old-time feel to this sepia photograph.Nicely composed too - the triangle formed by her elbow/arm and her line of sight really pulls your attention to the sewing machine. Nice.

excellent composition and toning. I like the hint of grain. Top 10 for me. Well done.

Perfect for this challenge. Great subject, lighting and contrast. More grain than I'd prefer-- seems like old photos never have grain due to the equipment they used. Well done!
