Hello Yan

Great work on this image, It does look very old. The POV is excellent. Great PP, and the woman on this lonely road helps the image. Tfs

Hi Yan, A timeless scene well processed it could be from many years ago. Interesting creation. TFS. Murray.

You get TWO awards for this! First, Texas Excellence Award, because this is top notch! And I also created a new theme called Powerful Emotion ~ Technical Nightmare. Which means all sorts of things could be said by those who are only concerned with the technical. Scratches, tones, blah blah! Photography is about EMOTION. Does the photo evoke emotion? YES. This is amazing! One of your best Yan!

Hi Yan,

This certainly does look like a very old photo. Terrific job in post processing. You have the scratches and all of the "old" marks just where they are seen on old photos! Terrific! I think it would be nice to see the original in a workshop so that everyone can see exactly what you accomplished! Lisa
