I ♥ Faces - Sepia Toned

This week at I ♥ Faces the theme is Sepia Toned.
I LOVE sepia toned images. (That is probably obvious to you if you've looked some of the other images I've posted on Exposing Grace.)
I love the warmth and mood that adding sepia gives to an image.
Of course, it doesn't work for every image, but I like what it did for these images.

Here is my child entry...

Bubbles (sepia toned)

Here is my adult entry...

These are stunning. So well done :) What is the background in your child entry? It is beautiful.

Your kids entry is one of my favorites for sure this week - what a gorgeous image! :-) ps - I love Crazy Love!

I love these pictures! Did you add a texture to the back of the 1st one? It looks great!

Shae June 15, 2009 at 3:48 PM  

these are beautiful! I love them both.

Yes I used a few textures on the first picture. 2 of them are TRA actions and the other is a photo of a texture that I blended in.
Thanks for all of the really nice comments.

Wow. Your child entry is perfection.

Yes... I agree, these images are stunning! I can't decide which I like more because they are both so fantastic. Definately one talented lady!

Oh my gosh. I just love your picture. The child and the bubbles. It just makes me melt. Absolutely perfect. SO pretty. Nice to meet you. I don't think I ever met you before. I love your style! I have to go look around. I am mesmerized by this picture. WOW!

Wonderful! I love the background for the child.

Oh my I am not usually a fan of sepia, but your conversions are beautiful! Like everyone else I adore the child entry!

Oh, yes, did sepia ever work for these two images! I love the tenderness and innocence of the first, with its beautiful bokeh, but the adult entry is very striking. Masterfully done.

Emily June 16, 2009 at 5:23 PM  

Great photos! I love the texture in the child photo.

Wow! I love the kids entry and then I saw the adults entry. That one is absolutely awesome! I'm predicting that the adult one will definitely be in the top 10, if not the winner. Great job! I'm going to have to look around and see your other photos. I'm sure I will be inspired!

Amy @ Living Locurto June 16, 2009 at 7:22 PM  

Oh wow! These are absolutely amazing. Love your work. Thanks for sharing them with us!! Thanks also for the sweet comment on my blog:-)

Both are beautiful!! I love the slightly blurred look on the kids entry.

Arielle Langhorne June 17, 2009 at 11:19 AM  

Love both of your sepia images, and like everyone else, I find your child entry striking. You've accomplished a great background.

Why photography with an eternal purpose?

In 2008 I read a book by Francis Chan called Crazy Love. While reading that book, I was challenged in the way I gave back to God. Tithing couldn't be enough anymore, but our family lived to the end of our means - without any margin for God to use. So I prayed about how that could change. This venture is one of the ways I have responded to the answer to that prayer. A photography business where God gets the majority of the earnings to use for His purposes.
I'm not sure what that fully looks like yet, but I'm excited for the potential of what God is going to do.
