    Very true Wayne, should I get back to Wichita Falls again, I thought of some angles for this and other classic buildings like it that will avoid the anachronistic cars.

    Re: Sepia

    I really like this sepia toning on the building. Why don't you try "painting" those two white cars. The black vehicles don't stick out like the white ones do. I would just paint them grey or black.

    I hope you don't mind this quick and dirty example.

    Puristist beware, I'm not a huge fan of "real" sepia prints. I dunno, I just don't like the toning most software does. Exposure 2 does a decent job with a duotone Sepia with a little tuning... but I believe the cars are better dark.

    Lili,

    Very nice. The picture really matches the sepia treatment.

    Lili,
    I like the color of your original sepia treatment. It just seems to match the subject so well.

    Re: Sepia

    Cindy and Ed, thanks so much.
    While one can paint out the offending cars, I fear I'm too much a purist, preferring interpretation to actual image creation
    karrphoto; differing strokes and all that, right?

    Re: Sepia

    Lili, In the dark room photographers dodged and burned elements that were out of sync. I just really like this photo, but those bright white cars draw the eye to the cars first. It is your photo and I respect your decision, but I personally don't think it is "impure" to tone down. Anyway, I think you are on a good track with the sepia and subjects like this. I'll look forward to more.

    Re: Sepia

    Cindy, I was not saying burning or toning down the cars was 'impure' or anything.
    I would still know they are there and whatever their color they are dissonant with the timeless image I would like to portray.
    I need to go back and get either a differing angle or wait till nothing i parked there.
