Days in the past

By Tonksfest
I visisted Beamish Museum . What a photoghaphers paradise. I came across this small alley way and noticed two colourful metal posters. The back drop of the street added some interest to the image but luckily a heard a vechile approaching and captured the bus as it went by. You may comment that there is not any human subject , and I am glad due to modern clothing of people walking around , I did not think the image would look authentic. All comments welcome, Mickey .Wink

Have you tried to put scratches and sepia tone it?

Hi David , Thankyou for your kind comment. Yes I do consider sepia tone and making the image look older using filters with various photo imaging programs, BUT !!!The image is what your parents or grand parents may have seen. We do see WW1 and WW2 TV programmes in full colour because it gives us an idea what it was like to live at that time, Kind regards Mickey.Smile

Even then the world was in colour its just our records of it are not so you did right to leave it in colour, as you say its good there are no modern clothed people in it as that would have spoiled the image. - gary
