[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This was orig. color, but didn't really stand out in color. To give it more impact, I removed color, added contrast, added a duotone and yellow filter, added verticle grain, and used a tattered looking crop. To finish of, I put a border around the photo.

Hi Amy!
Very nicely done PP on this photo..
I feel the gamma is a bit on the higher side..
Having said that, you have quite successfully achieved that "old-fashioned" effect for this photo..

Wonderful effect Amy! Looks like a very old photograph. Subject and composition fit well with your title. Good capture on the movement as well. TFS Keep it up!

  • Great

You are really good at creating old looking photographs, or here, because of the vertical lines, it reminds me of a film still of an old documentary film, maybe 1920's...
It has a certain mood...
Quite effective - well done!

I love the feel of the photo. Its like a still out of an old home movie!

Very great treatment on this one, Amy, as it really looks like an old postcard from the '20s. I also like the original picture for its composition. Excellent!

Excellent! :D well done

hi amy,
