Sepia Scenes: Steam Engine 110



Theteach has a new photo meme, Sepia Scenes, that I just had to try out. The restored engine of a nearby scenic railroad ride seemed like a perfect subject. I couldn't figure out how to sepia-fy it in Photoshop, but the AOL photo editor has a one-click sepia feature that did the trick.

The meme is brand new -- this is the first week -- and happens on Thursdays. I don't know yet whether I like sepia all that much, but it's always fun to try something new. Come by and check it out, OK? Click here: Sepia Scenes

This is cool. You picked a perfect subject. Maybe I will give this a whirl, too. I think some photo's look better in sepia just like some are better in black and white.

It will be interesting to see how much sepia I'll enjoy. I love your subject that you chose to change to a sepia tone. It really fits the sepia/black and white era!!

Love the train images. Reminds me of my childhood in northern Wisconsin and the trains that would come and go from the sawmills.

I love this old train. I wonder how old it really is. The AOL photo editor did a nice job!

Is sepia the same as black and white? Looks very cool...

Thanks for the kind comments, everbody! I'm sure I'll do more of these. I'm out at the new place this weekend, with limited internet access, so I haven't been able to visit everbody. Sorry about that! And Rambling, no, sepia is more of a brown and white. It seems to range from very brown to almost greyscale, though.
