About the Image(s)

I was photographing in the mountains of Colorado. We came across the old wagons. I really enjoy seeing the old homesteads.

It was shot at 1/200, f13, ISO 200 and 32mm. I finished it with some contrast and desaturation. I used a Topaz filter to finish it with a texture.

An interesting image for sure. I like the original image too. Could you imagine traveling in one of these??!!   Posted: 09/10/2023 04:19:26

Deborah, I am also a sucker for these older means of transportation. Can't get enough of them! Your rendition of the scene is almost a monotone I think there was more contrast and separation in the original (thanks for adding it). Also, you cropped out the end of the board which was ther ein the original. I ran it though my program and added some contrast and cropped out the small vehicle on the far left so the focus would be on the buckboards.   Posted: 09/10/2023 06:24:48

Wonderful find! I do like that Joe's crop showed the whole wagon and would consider cropping more off the top and removing the fence posts.
I like the desaturation of the photo, it gives it the feel of the era   Posted: 09/14/2023 09:56:07

Good picture and I like Joe's suggestion about cropping and his sky addition and Deb's suggestion about even more cropping. Your photo has lots of potential.   Posted: 09/14/2023 10:34:13
