Bags Please Sir!

By Craig99999    
Thanks for all the constructive critism so far, more the merrier all part of the learning process. Took this one at the weekend at a steam railway. Tried to create a really old looking railway scene, not sure weather i managed it or not. Comments again most welcome.

Very atmospheric image, I like V1 myself but perhaps a little too much sepia . . . . just a thought.

I nicked it dave, and you only get 1 guess as to where from lol. I was aiming more towards the platform scene than the train itself though.

Nice shot and I think the sepia one is my fave, I havdn't noticed the footie shirt...but now you mention it! Still a good shot I particularly like the interaction between the two main characters.

For me the sepia one seems to need a little tweak of contrast but the other two are excellent. I prefer colour images normally but N02 the mono one in this instance does the trick. exposure, detail , everything is spot on as is the colour one but mono gives the setting you wanted.

Without a doubt, sepia for me. It took me a moment to work out it wasn't an old photo! Really enjoyed seeing all 3 in the series.

Watcha Craig,
yep, nice shot, needed the conversion that couple in the mid-distance and the bloke in the football shirt spoil the effect, B&W lessens their insistance. This sepia isn't quite right, can't put my finger on it but I'm guesing that you didn't reduce the opacity after you'd created it, left it a bit milky.
I've had a little play with this.

Your skills are way beyond mine in photoshop mick, the instructions to how you created the effect are still a bit chinese to me as ive only had the program a few weeks. I like what you did to the image though. Cant wait till i can learn this program but its slow going.
This is however one of my favorite pieces of work but looking back over my origional i think its all a little too much in focus for the era.
