HI Teddy
Its obvious that the pavement behind the bench and the sky were oe, so you could have duplicated the layer set at multiply this would have darked it quite a bit then used a mask to lighten the people.
It does have the aged look but not that old
As for the photograph in my opinion, you could have cropped a good part off the bottom to bring in your subjects closer, I see it that way others may not.
On the whole you did pretty good with the pp, as you say its a start.
Off to hospital now

nice old looking photos well done with the processing kapatid, just one thing i noticed, i think its tilted on the right side (my view) but the composition and the pp on this image speaks!!! ZTEG!!!

dear Teddy,
this old taste is very nice,
objective men and your capturing and PP works meet well here,
three different expressions of them are interesting,
and fore columns and back buildings make excellent stage foe them,
back bright road looks halo of them, it is so beautiful,
thank you,

Boa noite
I believe I must ask dear Dot to teach me to this to the photos too.
I like the posture of the tree man each one is acting in different way even all them be sat down. I have a preference for the one whose feet are not down. After I like the way you made the photo look old. I believe I would crop in the other way, for me the main of this photo are these personnages.
Um abrašo

Hola Teddy
Edicion sobresaliente creando un ambiente antiguo muy acertado como si se tratase de hace mucho tiempo , virado acorde con la iluminacion , encuadre un poco justo , aunque queda compensado por las columnas , en mi opinion una destacada edicion bien realizada

Buen dia
Un saludo

Hello Teddy,

Good effects. Seems like one from the past. The calmness in this photo is amazing. The composition with the man in the middle with his feet up is very well seen and captured.
