    In the days of film when I did wet processing I always fancied trying split-toning in the style of the nineteenth-century photographers. But it seemed a complex process, and I never got round to it. However, digital makes it easier. This shot of the new promenade at Cleveleys, Lancashire, has a sepia/blue split applied to a high-contrast black and white conversion of the original colour image.

    Thanks Sean. The shot was taken with your weapon of choice plus the 11-22.

    Oooh-oh-ooooh! Very nice colors, indeed. I agree the architecture fits well with the toning. Looks a bit like an alien world.

    Good!
    I am out of words for your photos, anyway. They're all jaw-droppers.

    Would you be so kind as to explain to me how this split toning is being done (my PS is ancient, though, it is only the 6.0 version).

    Thanks for the feedback on this one Aquarium, Matthieu & Corinna. Here are three links to give you an idea about the process Corinna - the long, the short and the wet (film) :). It's not a process that would stand regular, repeated use, but used sparingly on the right subject it adds a nice quality.

    Regards, Tony
