Back to the '40s

By TrevBatWCC    
Every year for a weekend in May in Haworth they have a 1940s weekend. I first went back in 2009, and thought another trip there was overdue, so went with a fellow Camera Club member on the Saturday of last weekend. The weather remained fine all day, though it was rather overcast, but I think this worked in our favour as, had it been a sunny day, the light would have been too harsh and contrasty. Thought it suited the sepia treatment - with a bit of soft focus thrown in too - but included the original colour version.

Techie stuff: see Exif
Single Raw image processed in Adobe Camera Raw, tweaked in Photomatix Pro and Elements 6

Excellent in both colour and mono Trev, but my favorite is your mono rendering.

The original is excellent giving such a flavour of the times, but the toned version at V 1 does so even more, Trev.

Actually Trev I like the colour version but I really think that a version half way between the two would capture the 1940's feel perfectly.

V2 for me, Trev, I think it comes to life. The soft focus in V1 isn't to my taste, but I do admire your processing skills.
