A Smile for Wednesdays

This couple takes a walk every morning. Because it was mid to late morning, the sun was quite harsh. I added a sepia filter to cut down on the harsh lighting and add a glow to the photo. I’ve been experimenting with the sepia filter over the months. It’s part of the Cokin filter system my dad handed down to me last fall. I hope the sweetness of this shot makes you smile on this Wednesday.

Awww, how nice. The sepia tones make it look quite autumnal. Maybe you should capture this couple every once in a while (on film, of course...not literally) as a series.

Nothing better than a walk down a country lane on a beautiful day to make one smile.

Very nice, inviting tones for this shot. The tone gives it a somewhat aged feel. I agree that it makes the scene Atumnal as well.

Those two look like they are straight from central casting for that town you’ve described to us so well.

cokin filters are wicked - i love the way that you can just buy the application rings to swap them onto other lenses - nice to see that someone else is using some old fashioned techniques to shoot stuff - i though i may be the only one left - i like the photo - hope i will grow old with someone

Has great sentimental quality this image. The essence of humanity and companionship are evident to me.
I think the sepia treatment makes the image crisp.

I like this shot, reminds me of one of Sinems shot http://suby.shutterchance.com/photoblog/1083.htm

Would have been tempted to go monochrome all over this :)

Good catch

Nice shot. Sepia adds old world charm.

The sepia filter warms this up nicely and helps to produce a timeless feel - my first thought upon seeing this image was that this couple probably follows this route regularly and your words confirm that fact. Looks like a fine route...
