Well, yes, nice image but... has nobody noticed how all the leaves have *exactly* the same shade of green? And how the daffodils and buttercups are the same color? And look at that (unnaturally bright) path... the pebbles & ground have identical hue; they just vary in brightness.

These clues all point to this being a hand-tinted black-and-white photo. It was probably done in the 19th century or early 20th when such work was very popular.

Excellent tinting on the trees, though.

Default To tendzin: Interesting

Though in fact this is a digital image I may have subconsciously been influenced in my post-processing by my love for the early Lumiere Autochrome color photos which have simalar characteristics to hand colored b&w. In fact in the period I post processed this shot I did some Lumiere Autochrome imitations like this one: http://aminus3.s3.amazonaws.com/image/g0016/u00015959/i00587390/a2dc37677b19e5f2570372ea3b4caf7d_large.jpg

Interesting comment and nice observation. :)
