    Perhaps better in B&W or Sepia to get the "old photo" look ?

    Nice old car Frank but "Old Photo" look means OLD.
    Kick out the colour, get some grain in, crop the unnecessary and clone out the crap.
    Be ruthless Frank, I know you old "Sparks" can smoke it.

    Old, old or really old.

    I think I know the look Frank was going for with the muted colors. Early color photography. It fits with the time period of the truck.

    Check out this World War I color photo. http://askthephotographer.com/wp-con...008/04/wwi.jpg

    I would agree though that the majority of people react to the brownish and red-brown tones of sepia, palladium, platinum and the purpleish tone of selenium as being "OLD." Pure B&W gets close to evoking the feeling of old, but I think B&W tends to have a timeless quality to it unless the subject itself is old.

    New meets old

    Here's a 3 shot 2EV HDR converted to a Palladium tone.

    A900 w/Sigma 28-90 @ 35mm, f6.3, ISO 100, +2,0,-2EV
    Modified grunge effect, PS converstion to Palladium.

    Of course, to make this image older looking, I would have to also clone out the graffiti.

    I don't disagree Darren. I was as much looking at the lack of grain and the cropping and cloning aspect.

    I'm interested in everyone's thoughts impressions on these images. I use "images" because these were shot for HDR, merged using a modified setting of PhotoMatix's "Grunge" effect. In the first two sets, I further modified the original color version into a mono toned version.

    Darin, I guess I'm too conventional to make a useful contribution.
