Hello Karen,

Perfect choice of sepia to this kind of photograph! Excellent perspective!
I think you can reduce some noise, increase the luminosity and sharpen more (a bit).
Tomorrow I will try a WS.
Congratulations for your experiment!

Hi Karen,
Very beautiful low point of view and excellent sepia tones and perspective.TFS.


Good composition. Very nice work.


How very western and rustic! Cool post Karen! My sepias usually aren't this saturation, but it has it's place. Sometimes I like that "golden" light look! Love the low profile here, hope you were watching for a train! LOL! Nice work! Nice balance of the tree on the left and the trees on the right!

This works I think. I'm not a fan of sepia so I would never choose to do a shot like this, but your treatment here does have the feeling of an old photograph, suitably grainy in the sky and indistinct in its sharpness.
Nice job!

Hi Karen
The vertical lines of the tracks give a great dof.
Great texture and the sepia is great.
