Appropriate indeed. Well and truly antiqued. Has the look of a Daguerreotype or tintype. :thumbup:

(I prefer to present pictures in albums because I can put them in specific order.)

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|

Thanks, Chuck. It's a bit of work, but it works.

Excellent, Bob. I really like the effect, and as you noted, its appropriateness for the subject. I've been trying my hand at this on an old ruin I photographed in Scotland, with thus far less satisfactory results, but I shall keep trying. Thanks for the inspiration.

Thanks, Minnie. It's a bit of work, but not all that difficult. If you'd like some help, please let me know.

Time for a tutorial perhaps? I wouldn't want to hog the information!

Perhaps. I might write one and send it to you to work through. You can "debug" it. If it works well, we can post a tutorial.

Sounds like a winner. I'm dealing with some limitations for now, so it's a good time for housebound projects.

I haven't seen anything like this before but it somehow reminds me of the images you saw from the first nuclear test where the house blew down. It's that sort of, the house is perfectly sharp, but the background is moving. It sort of turns my stomach in a weird way but I can't stop looking at it. Really neat! S-

Thanks, St3v3. The process of making this requires me to create the small DOF reminiscent of the old wet plate cameras. My critique of this is that I erased a bit too much of the blurred portion of the image. I may rework it sometime in the future and attempt to restore that shallow DOF.
