Imander a strange word I know, but break it down and it reads " IM AND ER" OR Him and Her....Smile

This is my Mum and Dad who came down for a visit on saturday, we had a lovely time and it was great to see them.
As i have been playing with the aging of digital pictures, I thought this one was a good candidate for turning into an old film like image...

Cheers for looking, all thoughts good or bad are more than welcome.....Smile

This in itself is a beautiful capture, great expressions captured, so warm and lovely, your processing gave it a real edge though, superb work. Bet your parents like it Smile

We're starting to put together a family tree here... Excellent ageing, and your Mum is obviously a good sport. More importantly a wonderful double portrait as the basis for this, tender and loving.

Excellent portrait Ian. And the aging effects are brilliant. This shot could be 5 minutes or 50 years old.
