Days Gone By
the choice of black & white for this shot is perfect. It gives the shot look of the time where this car belongs to. the composition is nice. very good point of view. Various shades of blcak has been captured beautifully.
Very interesting composition. love it in B&W. love the frame and POV. TFS.
great shot love it in bw .. thanks for posting the color in ws it really looks great..
and the PRICE 49 cents.. how nice would that be! ;)
Clear photo with very good detail. The composition is excellent. Is become you a wonderful effect the picture. Very good work.
I like this old photo look with this pump from another decade. Great use of B&W
Bel ensemble qui nous fait remonter le temps.
Very good cloning work, Karen, as I would never have known that there were so much junk around the pump if you had not shown the original. I would have like not to have the newer car in the frame at all but you might not have had the right angle to completly avoid it and the only other option is to crop it out but then you would also crop part of the back of the old car but it might still work. Good choice of B&W. Well done!
Very well done...the B&W was an excellent choice!!!
hi Karen. nice shot in black and white. the car, gasoline pump. . . but it caught the refelection of the white car. its still a Good One. Tfs
I like it. The picture looks so authentic. C'mon now, we all know that time travel isn't just a theory anymore; give us the scoop.
I've been converting a few images to just to see if they look better than color. There is that reflection in the door, however. Maybe someone who knows how to edit that out will share the secret of how to remove the reflection of the white car. The most important question is whether that pump still works at that price.
I LOVE your clone work! Perfect. I may have gotten rid of the modern vehicle all together though, I know you could....it would have taken more time but it would have been worth it. This would (and could) have been a timeless photo....the B&W conversion was a perfect example of why there is a need for B&W. Some people don't like B&W and I'd be able to show change their minds with this image! Great PP work Karen, your a real quick study, my friend!

great shot and PP...if i didnt know better i would think it was a photo from the '50s...too bad you can see the reflection of a new white car in the read door and the front corner of another on the left of the photo...great texture and detail on the Esso...peace***
Excellent 'Bonny and Clyde' view on yesterdays splendour
Well done Karen .. and saying this pleasse note that I am normaly not such a b/w lover

I really like this shot. I hate to sound redundant, but I do like this in black & white. It adds so much mood and character to the shot. I love the texture of the old pump and the white wall tires. I noticed that the right line of the pump seems out of perspective at the bottom. I liked the workwhop where the portion of the other car was removed. All in all, an excellent photo and you did a great job removing the distracting objects. Again, great shot!!

Nicely executed Karen. Good crop, well composed and very well converted. Perhaps even another crop to remove that wedge of daylight from the right side? TFS,
Many thanks for your comment on ‘Geographe Bay Sunset’
