Home Sweet Home
Lens: Pentax DA 35 limited Camera: Pentax K7 Photo Location: Somewhere in NSW ISO: 200 Shutter Speed: 1/60s Aperture: F5 

Colour or B&W? With the colour you can see the rust and wear and tear a bit more, but the B&W gives it an older "feel"...

Split-tone or sepia maybe ? I prefer the rustic warmth of the first... but the B+W does add 'something'.. . just not sure if it offsets the loss of the 'rusticness'

But obviously - thats just my personal thoughts.. no idea if it'd 'improve' the image

(P.s.. as a local.. I demand to know where that is.. lol... Out Tharwa way ?? )

I'll give sepia a try. Thanks for the suggestion!

Demand, eh? Take a drive from Michelago to Captain's Flat on the dirt and you'll find it, but I warn you that the drive up the mountain near Michelago is steep and rough. I wouldn't have driven on the road in a 2WD. It doesn't need a 4WD other than having suspension to cope with the rough surface, though.

Although it is quite nice in color, I vote for b/w.

The valley also has a line of poplars along the creek which would be nice in Autumn.

Here's a couple of attempts at aging the image. First sepia, then sepia combined with a specific old image effect...
