I was waiting for my daughter on Friday when I saw this scene and hoped someone would walk along. Not only did someone show up but they were dressed to make the shot perfect. That hat she's wearing makes it look like 1920 or something which was just perfect! Patience paid off.

Bet you're glad you didn't mess it up then, prolly wouldn't have gotten another chance.

Nice. Think about a B&W.

I do like the Victorian feel, and would be interested to see what Barefoot's B & W suggestion would look like?

Really lovely image Iggy - Can't make up my mind if the lightpost is helping though. For me it also works w/out the post.

Thanks, everyone. I often avoid B&W unless the image screams B&W for me. This one whispers it. The yellow/sepia type tones speak more to me in this image which is why I left it in colour. I might post a B&W version just for fun.

Yes, Realist. I am glad I didn't muck it up ;)

Thanks, Marko. I liked the light pole but I'm don't like the No Parking sign. Thought about cloning it out. I can see it works without the light pole as well but it's an old fashioned kind of light pole that works with the mood, I think. I think the sign is what's really been bothering me since I posted it... maybe I should wait longer before I post an image.

Eye candy, Iggy. Simply eye candy. Wonderful composition, exposure light ... superb.

Cool image Iggy. It does have that old time look to it. I have to admit I'm with you in trying to get rid of the no parking sign, it doesn't fit with the era. Like the others I intrigued as to what it would look like in B&W.

Well, it probably sucks as I'm not a B&W processor. Anyone who wants to try is welcome to try. Here's my version.

I'm certainly no expert at this but thought I would see what I could come up with (seeing as you gave us the OK). Mucked around for a few minutes in Lightroom / Silver Efex Pro and this is what I came up with.

Nothing wrong with that. It is a nice conversion. I like yours too asnow.

I enjoy the editing process so I had go too. Here is mine, but I am not too sure about it.

Interesting to see the different results. Nice stuff. Anyone else?

So did I. Looks like you used High Structure Smooth with an orange filter with # 13 tone. No lens fall-off. :laughing:

No, really. What did you do, because what you ended up with looks a lot like what I did. Anyway, it is nice.

If I remember I used one of the canned vintage options and removed the vignetting. Then in Lightroom I warmed it up a bit to tone down the sepia and added a touch of grain as I thought old film would have a bit of grain.

Really like this one Iggy, but Asnow's edit really makes it for me. I would like to see it as Marko suggested, without the lamp though.

Thanks!

Edit away... there's a link to the full size JPG or if anyone is really crazy I'll flip you a copy of the CR2 file.

Correction - I "cooled" it a bit to tone down the sepia. i.e make it a little less yellow.

I always like to play with bw so I was glad you made the offer for anyone to try. This is my version. May not be any better than yours but just different. Thanks the opportunity!
