This is super. A cracking shot, werll composed and works in sepia but - it needs brightening up. Sepia images lack contrast because the process removes all true black. Use the brightening tool and/or a little dodging to have a real winner.
See mod - does it work?
A terrific shot Jacques. I love the angle of the bamboo pole, the expression the fact he is so happy to have the shot taken, and the depth of field that shows both baskets.
Can be improved with a few easy tweaks. The exposure of the original shot was likely influenced by the bright sky, and coupled with the fact the bright area is behind the man, he effectively backlit, so the result is a little under exposed. Use of a fill flash may have helped. Adding the tone has further reduced brightness, - and if I were to guess, you may have done this to tame the sky.
So I loaded three mods. In the first, Ive gone back to the mono original, and adjusted brightness, and toned down the sky. I used curves and threshold for brightness, and the highlight tool in CS4 for the sky, which has also brought back some clouds; mod2 is a very light sepia tone; and mod 3 is a tri tone effect that looks a little different. The brightness correction has been carried through the two toned version.
Its a wonderful shot, and I hope you find this helpful,
