Canada Geese Over Farm/ Sepia Scenes

Canada Geese flying over Scugog Island, Port Perry, Ontario

It was early evening and four geese were heading for a place to spend the night.

I worked on this photo in two layers. The bottom layer was in colour and the top in sepia at 70% opaque, which allows come colour to show through.

I love this, very evocative of season, pretty, well captured.

Jacob said...

Nicely done, EG. Great effect! And those darn geese are heading to the States to poop all over!

I have no idea how you do that "working in two layers" technique, but it looks really good when you have finished!

kaye said...

I love your two layer technique too. The geese in flight are a nice touch.

AB said...

I guess the sepia gives it an air of timelessness

Judy said...

I like the faded look the second layer of sepia gives this photo!

Could have been Stadsberga, a small village near me. Great scene.

Michelle said...

That shot certainly makes me feel ready for the fall.

I'd like to know how you did this too! What a wonderful hint of color it has, and yet it still has the sepia appeal.

Marie Höglund said...

Autumn feeling lovely in a special touch of sepia.

It looks like a picture from the 1950s. Great!

PERBS said...

Interesting what you did to the photo! Nice photo anyway tho. I ahve a question about Canada Geese. I always called them Canadian Geese so why the difference in wording?

George said...

You did a wonderful job with this photo. I like the muted tone of the color showing through.

PERBS,

I think the correct term is Canada geese but tons of people do call them Canadian geese.

Beautiful photo! It has a sweet melancholia to it.

Patti said...

Nice landscape, EG WOW! I like very much how you retained some of the colors. I've been practicing my sepia-fying. It's not easy.

Happy Sepia Scenes ~

kden said...

Very cool technique. Lovely shot.

Leora said...

Painterly - what a lovely scene. Well done with the light coloring.

Ralph said...

What a stunning view! Your edits make this farm look quaint and old fashioned. I can't say if it is still a working farm, but I can almost see the grazing bovines lazily enjoying their grasses...

Jenn Jilks said...

Very nice! Our geese have disappeared and we are off to Ottawa!

Becky and Gary said...

Reminds me of a pen and ink drawing. Love it.

Rose said...

I did a double take on this...I like it.

Wonderful to see scenes like this.

Robin said...

I really like the way you processed this. Very subtle without being at all washed out.

Dianne said...

the color showing thru is lovely

B SQUARED said...

You really are good at this "Photoshopping."

Heidi said...

It is that time of year. What a lovely fall shot. I love how low the geese are flying. They are usually so high in the sky around here that a shot like that wouldn't even be possible. Absolutely beautiful!
