    I tried to make this image look like an old antique photo. I desaturated to black & white and added sepia tint. Then I used blur tool on edges to make it look worn then added border as if it were an antique print. Might look cooler with a slight page curl.

    looks quite good, I'd add some scratches, dust and that kind of stuff.

    looks good. try adding some noise and "scratches" to show the age of the photo.

    The form and texture of this photo seems strong to me. I am swinging toward seeing the original.

    I'd down the brightness a little - that one side of the lighthouse looks a wee bit "blown".

    >Craig - I went into some old storage CD's to find the original scan but it seems I did not save the original color scan. As I remember, I was not happy with the color and as duck said, I also thought it seemed overexposed and I believe that is why I decided to just desaturate the color alltogether and make a special fx photo out it. I wished I had used a polarizer on that shot as it would have brought out detail in the sky and so forth.

    Beautiful shot, and i must say, it does look like an old print. I thought this was film until I read your notes. Well done :)
