Still Life/ Sepia Scenes

As seen at the Sharon Temple Museum, East Gwillimbury

Low light, eh? Turns out I like the resulting grainy look to this Sepia Scene. Hope you do too.

Super shot. Looks like a real old timey photo. Where do you find these places? MB

Yes, I like it too. The graininess adds to the feeling of authenticity.

I like the arrangement. It looks like something one would find in our museum, the Spitler house.

I agree with you. It adds much to the effect.

Jarart said...

Neat old stuff...the grainy effect is perfect.

Craver Vii said...

I agree about the grainy look. Apparently, so does everyone else! The shot has a classic, timeless look to it.

The grain in the photo works really well. Sometimes it is just what an images needs.

George said...

I agree -- the grainy look to this photo is perfect for this sepia scene. I love the composition of this photo.

Nice one! The more I look at it the more I like the graininess. It adds some ethereal effect to the picture.

Sepia works well with this old-fashioned scene. I agree with the others about the grainy look adding something here.

P.S. Thanks for the comment on my car reflection photo. I take that as a high compliment from such a great photographer. ;-)

Jacob said...

Grain is sometimes desired...in fact I have Photoshop programs with which you can add grain to your photos...have never seen a need to do that, but...

Excellent photo!

Ralph said...

The grainy look is appropriate as the photos from days past are a bit grainy. In your picture, I feel that I am living in a house with a big fireplace in the middle as the only source of heat (that and no insulation...). Nice old feeling view!

Becky and Gary said...

Love the look EG. Makes it look ancient!

The graininess ages the photo. Very nice. Reminds me of the Lincoln farm.

I like this one, too! I just don't seem to get time or think to join Sepia scenes, but I still love them.

a page out of history. I really like it.

An excellent still life with a little graining in it. EG? I love it! :)

Felisol said...

The old-time mode of the photo is perfect for a museum exhibition.
Adds trustworthiness to the place.

The grainy effect seems to authenticate the vintage of the photo in sepia! Beautiful!
