A variety of sepia toned images that I have been experimenting with over the years trying to capture the 'fine art' quality of the greats.
Shot with the K20, K10 and I believe my old *ist DL as well
Critiques are welcomed

Wow these are gorgeous! I'd love to create a Lightroom preset based on your sepia work above. Any tips?!

Would a preset be like an action in PS? If so, I will do some tinkering and get back with you on that.
These all used different techniques and software but I will try and figure a way to do the same with Photoshop and post the results here

that is very kind of you! thanks. I have no idea how things work in PS! In Lightroom, a preset can be used as a template to instantly apply a bunch of changes to a photo. Say you did the above pics in Lightroom, you can just select the first pic and choose to save all the changes you made to the original as a preset. Now you can apply that preset to the rest of the originals with one click.

bjeld, as far as the minimal research of Lightroom I've done, it should have a Sepia preset in there somewhere.
But if you would like to do some experimenting on your own and create different looks and feels to your images and recording them as a preset, the video here pretty much gives you all the tips you need.
Good luck and happy creating

These are stunning. The rose is so beautiful as is the first flower. Dang, they are all gorgeous and the technique you used to create these is a wonder of its own.

Really great shots and processing. You should feel good about these. What I like is the variety of tones and contrast and depth. Very creative and not prescriptive. I'd also be interested in some of your knowledge about it if you'd share. Thanks for posting. Enjoyable to look at.

Thank you, Mr Canuck.
