These high school girls sitting watching a basketball game took me back in my mind to when I was attending high school in Canada many, many years ago. I was reminded of particular girl I had a "crush" on but never had the courage to go up and talk with. Stupid me.

There was a cage separating the stage area where I was and the stands where the girls sat. It was a dark 1950s era school.

The original shot was B&W and a bit grainy. I added a slight sepia tone, artistic blur filter and frame to try and convey the idea of what was going through my mind, kind of like a picture into the past. I was reminiscing...

Francis,

Beautiful interpretation of reminiscence, strong feeling emanating from the photo.
The mood here has a effective impact due to the sepia treatment and also the instant chosen.
It looks like a movie scene. The result is very artistic
