Now this is not a common scene these days in East Gwillimbury. Way too cold. Brrrr. This photo was taken last September on a warm day...long before snow fell on East Gwillimbury, as it did last week.
A newly married couple was out and about town, sitting in the front seat of the carriage. The maid of honour and best man were in the rear seat. What a pleasant way to take a breather after the wedding ceremony before heading back to the wedding reception.
I converted the top photo to sepia in PhotoShop Elements by first removing the colour, then adding the filter "color dodge," unchecking the luminosity box. Then I added 90% sepia and finally flattened the image.
I think the carriage still looks too "plastic" of metallic. So for the second photo...
I used PhotoShop Elements' old paper filter to age the photo. Unfortunately, that distorts the faces on the people.
I think changing these photos into sepia tones is still in the experimental stages. Ha! I need to work on this.
