Sepia Scenes - Sunset

These sunset scenes weren't particularly colorful, so I gave them some sepia tone. The first one is full sepia, the last two are half sepia. In the last image I also added a layer of crinkled wax paper to the clouds for texture.

In the first one, the opening in the clouds made the sun look like a spot light. I considered cloning out the distant plane and old radio antennae, but I left them alone.

I agree with Gaelyn, very interesting effects. That half sepia is especially nice.
I guess this is the week for Cooper's hawks, interesting that we had similar visitors.

You've done a good job. They all look different and I like them all.

I do like the plane and radio antenna in the 1st photo. In the half sepia ones, I like being able to see more of the details of the foreground (or maybe that's the way the photo is taken?). Very creative with the last one :).

They are all good, Diane, but I think I like the half-sepia one---for the contrast...

Have a great week.
Hugs,
Betsy

I'm usually not a fan of sepia for most uses but you have taken it to another level. The half sepia and texture in the last photo gives the appearance of a painting. The first two are simply beautiful.

Nice. I like the half-sepia, it gives it a real sunset-y feel.
