Color or Sepia?
Those of you who are kind enough to have followed my fledgling photo blog have probably learned that I have done little digital manipulation, but that I am eager to learn such skills. On my MacBook iPhoto I have engaged in simple color to sepia transformation: usually it is clear to me which pictures take well to sepia, or to black and white for that matter. But in this case, I am having a problem deciding which is the better, and I’m asking for your help. Does it seem preferable that this picture be in color or is it better shown in sepia? Tell me what you think.
I met this sweet lady at a church in Higlands, Texas. She is 97 years old. Amazingly she has little grey hair.
I have a couple of other shots of her on my Flickr account and have posted each of them in both color and sepia. You’re welcome if you wish to go over and take a look.
EDIT: After the first three comments, I brought over a black and white.
