Hi, I love the expression on his face....very cool! I have taken the liberty of having an extra quick play with the shot to darken it slightly...more the background than anything as I found it a little distracting....*smile*
Please excuse the dodgy photoshop work...its only meant to give you an idea....
feel free to edit it anyway you like. I enjoy seeing different takes on my work.
thought I would give you a link to a real albumin print and how it looks after about 150 years/ http://albumen.stanford.edu/library/monographs/masters/fiche-1-g6.jpg
I like the darkness of the suit when Mindii PSed it, but yours work well too. Maybe you could tone down that patch of dark tree on the left side of the man, its a bit distracting to me, just a little-you don't have to get rid of it. Your link showed a brownish tint to the pic, I assume it turns brown over time... maybe you want to add a similar tint or a slight tint to your pic too? Just a thought.
actually the once in the link is sepia they came in blackand while and sepia... take a look at this one http://www.wildwestweb.net/cwp/cwp58.jpg
The lighten the bit of whatever it was on the left is a good idea I will do that If I print this on paper thanks...It serves no purpose in my shot but I think it is a doll hanging in the tree now that I look at it. It makes no difference It is history when I print it. Thanks again...
I'd probably crop a bit off the top and right, so that his body is facing into the image rather than out of it.
good idea... the more the merrier..I like the crop idea so I redid it on the site and here as well thanks....
