So far, in this 3-part series of blog posts, we've seen a couple of photos that, in my humble opinion, clearly look better with a sepia treatment.
In this last installment, I present to you a photo that looks good in both color and sepia.
Again, in my humble opinion.
This image, like the others, is from Casa Loma in Toronto. It's the conservatory, a room filled with natural light, and plant life. The image is a small panorama, taken with an iPhone.
Here's the color photo:
And here's the photo with a sepia treatment:
No doubt the sepia photo, like all sepia-toned images, has an aged feel to it, and that lends it a certain cool factor.
But in this case, unlike the others, I think this image is better in color. The full color image allows you to "feel" the warm sunlight coming through the windows. And natural plant life always looks better in vivid color, as does the stained glass dome.
But you be the judge. Let me know what you think in the comments (or email me directly).
I'll try to get back to non-sepia shots next. Old-timey photos are nice to look at once in a while, but color photography is here to stay.
