Sepia Scenes:Selective Sepia Toning







I followed this tutorial to create the selective sepia effect in this photo I took last year at Sicily, I lowered the opacity of the sepia tone to 60%.

Awesome. The violet bouganville really "lifts" the whole picture.

Looks wonderful. It makes me want to get some photo editing software; the only way I can take sepia shots is with the sepia mode on the camera & I would love to have a go at editing them like that!

The sepia statue is muted, the monochrome allowing the form to better stand out. Of course, all that muted color deserves a splash of color to make the entire frame shine brightly. Pink and sepia are an unbeatable combination!

Selective sepia is one of my favorite photo effects and this is very lovely!
A wonderful photo to go along with the approaching Valentine's Day!

I like the tone and that you have choosen to let the flowers keep the great fuschiacolour. Really nice!

Jane said...

Thank you everyone:)

I shall visit you soon Marice, the sepia tone on a camera is okay although a little un naturally dark I think. There are lots of software out there besides PS, hope you get one soon Serendipity.

Great job of using selective sepia, Jane! And you've got putti (cherubs) in your shot! Love it! :)

Jane said...

Thanks Kaye and Mary, glad you liked it. I think the cherubs look quite rustic in the sepia.
