Charlie (red bow sepia version)

This version specifically done for Rachel. I'm not sure the red bow entirely works, but there it is anyway.

I added a sepia layer to see what it looked like.

Taken during the Eyecandy for the Broken Hearted Flickr Meet, 3rd March 2007.

    I like the effect. I think it works well and, for me, focuses things on the model more. I also prefer this slight sepia tinted version too.

    Thanks David. Yeah I thought the selective colour was a bit too harsh on the plain b&w, thus the sepia version too.

    I like this vintage effect. Shouldn't you put this on public viewing? :)
  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks Maria. I'm still undecided whether to open it up for public viewing as yet, since I have the original b&w shot up, it might be too much of the same.

    Can't get too much of a good thing, David - go on!
    I'll add another fave to help persuade you ;-)
  • David de Groot said:
    Persuasive people aren't you ? :P
  • benefit of hindsight said:
    Sure are - we can be a real pain in the butt ;-p

    Cool! I like this one more than the b&w for its warmth, as you guys have already decided.
  • David de Groot said:
    Well a slightly different crop and some colour added Coralie, but taken from the same raw file. :)

    I also did a purple toned one, that seemed to work too, but figured yet another copy would be overkill.
  • ferrous said:
    purple tones in the bow or in the rest of the pic? purple tones in the rest of the pic would look amazing!

    Purple tones in the rest of the pic :) Like a sepia but with purple instead of orange.
  • ferrous said:
    that would look awesome!

    The beauty of using a solid colour layer in photoshop to tint your photos is that it's a piece of cake to change the colour to something else :)
  • ferrous said:
    ahhhhhh, of course! i was wondering how you did it. :-)

    Easy eh ? :)

    After looking at all three versions, even though the purple is well funky, I do prefer the sepia with red. The red bow really adds something to the shot, as opposed to the straight B&W :-)

    Looking at the sepia again, it could almost be an advertisement for some sort of coffee brand...
  • David de Groot said:
    I can't help but still prefer the plain b&w one, but I'll grant that this sepia/red bow version has merit. You're right about the coffee ad too. :)
  • Misteriddles said:
    I like this version best, perhaps because the bright red bow features so strongly in EC's images of Charlie.
  • David de Groot said:
    There is that, and I'm finding this one is growing on me the more I see it.
