Farm Address/ Sepia Scenes


Plow, cow and address number - country style

This is sepia on old paper worked in Photoshop Elements. The photo was taken last week but I hope it looks much older.

There is something about the perspective in this shot...

I like it and it does look old. Very clever idea. For some strange reason the cow looks modern. Don't ask! MB

Leora said...

The cow has her own address number? Maybe she's running her own business, too. Another great rustic scene.

Jarart said...

I does look old! Nice touch.

Ralph said...

The bovine appears to be ready to be picked up off the ground, looking like a hoist. Perhaps she will be easier to milk, the farmer able to work from a standing position instead of thad low three-legged stool.

Or maybe not, the perspective here allowing me use my imagination...

That has GOT TO BE one of my favourites EVER!

Paulie said...

You trying to make me feel better saying that your snow is old? haha You can't fool me!

Marie Höglund said...

Vintage, I love it!

Jacob said...

That is fascinating. Love the photo, too. What a landmark! You could tell people just drive 'til you see the plow and the cow!

I think you did a wonderful job of making it look old. Nice tone - not too light, not too dark. I really like the old paper/texture.
Nice work!

LDH said...

Amazing how you achieved this look with the textured feel of the paper and the vintage coloring! Lovely!

Amanda said...

Great job! I think the cow is the giveaway. Maybe if it(cow) was just one color it would be different.

Robin said...

Great job on the processing - it really does have an authentic vintage feel to it.
