About This is my first attempt at a sepia tone with PS. I'm not too sure if I like it or not. I'm wondering if it's too orange or if I've just been staring at it too long. I did an unsharp mask on her eyes (Thanks Susie and Doyle!) and changed the color to sepia.

Thanks for this comment Sweet Ray! I really missed everyone here on UseFilm, but I just got so caught up with my genealogy research that time got away from me! It's been fascinating, but I'm ready to go shoot some more photos now!

Hello to my sweet Sheila.

I love this soft sepia toned portrait and there is no way that it is too orange. Your pretty little daughter has such beautiful eyes and you have captured an enchanting expression on her face. Excellent infomal portraiture sweetie.

I'm just back from our holiday and missed this when you posted it and I see that you are 'away' too. I hope everything is OK and that you are keeping well. I hope to 'see' you again soon Sheila. My very best wishes to you as always......Ray

Thanks Doyle. To tell you the truth, I can't remember off of the top of my head how I changed this. I went through a tutorial and followed the steps. I have notes on it. I'm going to try your way too and see if it's easier (or maybe even better!). I think that your way sounds A LOT easier than all of the steps I took to get this to B&W.

Thanks!
:)Sheila

Sheila:
This is absolutely beautiful . . . the image, the composition and the cute little model. I absolutely wouldn't change a thing!!! Excellent work grasshopper . . . I could look at it for hours! BTW . . . it's not too orange for my taste. There is an easy step by step method which I assume you found (but in case others are interested):

1. Open the image in Photoshop Elements.

2. If the image is in color, go to Enhance > Adjust Color > Remove Color and skip to step 4.

3. If the image is in grayscale go to Image > Mode > RGB Color.

4. Go to Enhance > Adjust Color > Color Variations.

5. Move the Adjust Color Intensity slider down one notch less than the middle. (personal taste)

6. Click on Decrease Blue once. (some do two of one and one of the other on steps 6 & 7)

7. Click on Increase Red once.

8. Click OK.

Of course, you can experiment with all kinds of tints this way but (YOOOO HOOOO!) - Don't touch this picture! It's award worthy and I can't imagine a change that would make it better.

Sincerest Regards,
Doyle I <-~-~-

Thanks Susie!

I saw a comment on one of your images about downloading an action, but I'm not too sure how the whole thing works. I will go check out ezactions and see what I can find out. Thanks for the tip!

Sheila,

You never cease to amaze me. Awesome DOF, composure, tones, textures, sepia and cropping...

Well done indeed my friend,

Martin

Hi Sheila,
I just lvoe the angle and her expression, and great job on the eyes. You picked the perfect amount.
As for the sepia, it is a little orange for my tastes. I like the browner sepias. I know a place online that you can download some actions for pretty cheap and install into Elements. With one click you can convert to great tones. If you want to check it out go to www.ezactions.com
You're so fortunate to have these little guys to photograph! I'd never get anything done. )

She is a very pretty girl, i think she got it from her mom.. :) Shes got a very expressive eye, looks like she'll be a good photographer too. I like the sepia tones here, it looks like it was taken from long ago, it looks like a picture maybe of her grand mother when she was young. A dramatic portrait captured using sepia tones to give a different feel...
nice one Sheila...

That's funny. We have a neighbor kid who moved here from Mississippi and he calls me Ms. Sheila. His mom and dad like to be called Ms. Lori and Mr. John. I kind of think it's cute! Thanks Gayle!

hi, beautiful child portrait...great setting,dof and tone...no,not too orange at all...glad she is facing you to show her lovely eyes,but i don't get impression of day dreaming in this image...perhaps a title like "on her own",or something similar...just a thought...the image is well composed,too.....good work,Sheila!
regards,gayle
