After a cursory look on google at some examples of wet plate, as I know nothing about it... it appears you’ve done well.

Thanks. I'm skeptical of the white specks...

I would not worry about the white specs... when I first saw this image, I thought it was a historical documentation image you pulled up someplace. You were 100 percent successful in capturing the mood of those types of images, and it is Super Cool to boot!

Thanks. The Analog Efex component of the Nik filters has quite a toolset for creating such things, but it requires a fair amount of fiddling to get something specific that you want. I don't find the presets useful for more than just a starting place. So I had to reference some old photos and figure out which maneuvers to use, and which to leave alone.
