Sepia ScenesGive your photo a Sense of Sepia and link to the button above

Indonesian Beach by My Friend Faisal Dahlan

First of all, I would like to thank Mary for letting me into the secrets of Sepia Scenes. I didn't know that we could change our photos like this. I think it gives an old-styled, precious and memorable look to these images. Don't you just love sweet memories :)?

Second, I thank my friend Faisal (again) for letting me use some of his photos. I know, I know... I should have used my own photo and I sure will. But this particular photo here has become one of my favorites and I thought it would make a nice impression in sepia. You can see the original photo here at Cookies of Life.

For more great information about sepia scenes, please visit Mary's blog.


I've been thinking that this photo looked like a postcard when I read A Love of Postcard (an interesting comparison between 2 postcards featuring kangaroos) on my friend Pamposh Dar's blog from the Womens Blogger Directory, and a lot of people seem to agree with me... But now it is kind of official, since Marie Reed from Postcard Friendship Friday has mentioned this in my comment section :). You can link the button above to see or even join this blog carnival.

Indeed it has an 'old' feel in sepia. But is that bad? It feels like a slower time, like you just might take the time to actually relax under an umbrella on the dock. This is a fun picture!

That really is a good shot to use for Sepia. It looks like a long ago and far away place.

ROSIDAH said...

Yes, not bad at all... I like going back in time. Much more relaxing than nowadays. Looking at these photos gives me a certain warmth and peace.

Carletta said...

The original photo was stunning!
I think it is well rendered here in Sepia. It really did give it that old timeless feel of vacations past.
Nicely done.

Looks like an old time photo for sure - perfect for Sepia Scenes!

This looks like an old photograph you'd have found in an attic. Nice one!

Mojo said...

Perfect choice for a subject in sepia actually. A timeless image that could have been shot 60 minutes or 60 years ago.

Hi!

P.S. If there are two posts from me, I'm sorry, blogger is being temperamental today.

ROSIDAH said...

It's okay. I face the same Blogger problems here. Thanks for visiting :).

This looks like a wonderful place to visit and relax. The sepia makes it look like a place from a time gone by. Thanks for visiting also!

Patti said...

Oh that scene does look relaxing! I think the sepia gives it a dream-like quality.
The original is so vibrant. Very nice!

Thanks for visiting me.

I like the soft framing on this. Looks like a really pretty postcard I would love to receive.

This is a timeless photo that works very well in sepia!

Dianne said...

that's a lovely photo, makes me think of an old glamrous movie - the hideaway of movie stars

Marie Reed said...

That is just amazing! You've turned it into a vintage postcard! Hoorah for the sepia function!

Your photo looks like a vintage postcard!

I agree with Ralph - sepia tones always relax me and put me in a more meditative mood.
Thank you,
