The main photo was made last year in Lublin, I only tried to make it looking old. it is the part of the Old Town. It is my experiment and a joke.
The very old photo is here I couldn't post it as the main one as it violates some rules of TOS, and the rules are so important!
On the old photo is my father. He was born in Lublin in April 1910, so the photo is approximately 100 years old. So it will be oldest photo on TE! I think it is quite interesting how the kids looked like in that time and how the photos were made. I wonder how will be our digital photos after hundred years. But I will not see it..

Old or not, the mood is there, as for the future, don't think any camera will be needed or in use and, I still hope we will live well to that day...,for the time is approaching swiftly, better be prepered for it.
Enjoy the old photograph of your father, some forty plus years ago I looked very similar, just in dark hair.
Lublin, alike Zamosc or Lwow belonged at that time to the top class cities in the country.

What a wonderful street scene, made even more characterful by your conversion to sepia. The lines on the roadway and the buildings lead the eye very nicely into the picture with excellent lighting and tones. The exposure and detail are excellent too.
Of course you would have been forbidden to place your workshop picture as a main picture here, but it is a lovely photograph (again of excellent quality) and a lovely memory for you to keep.
The oldest photograph here which I took myself is this one from 1963. I know Gunnar has posted pictures older than this. But I'm sure I have some old photographs of my grandparents in the loft - pergaps I might post them sometime too!

J'aime beaucoup l'effet que tu as donné à cette image qui semble dater de la fin du siècle de ce quartier qui semble vidé de ses habitants.

Alleis in lublin really looks the same as a century ago, Malgo, did not change at all.
I have photos made in the 19th century in Poland, by my parrents ancestors - and yet I dare not post. Also from the Lublin area ( Zolynia, Rudnik, Tarnow and more).
This one in sepia has an old grace made on town's edifices.

Wonderful composition in an excellent sepia presentation with a nostalgic mood, interesting architectural details, very nice framework, TfS!

An interesting workshop picture and a very well composed old/new main picture. The are many curved lines that interact perfectly into a very intricate and balanced composition. Obviously you were lucky to capture this scene without any cars.

Ton travail de posttraitement nous fait remonter loin dans le temps et est synchrone avec la photo de ton papa jeune. Une jolie idée que tu as très bien réalisée.

Well seen, enjoy a fine evening.

mi piace questa conversione in sepia che rende l'immagine senza tempo.
Ottimo l'angolo di inquadratura con la curva della strada che chiude la scena.
JFS (32053) 2012-04-09 13:14
I like the old mood of this image, like this, you pay more attention of the details of this beautiful old street. Good work Malgorzata!
carlo62 (12492) 2012-04-09 15:47
senza dubbio un'immagine senza tempo, ben costruita e ben bilanciata, l'epoca non si capisce e rende la foto più misteriosa.
jhm (122334) 2012-04-10 4:32
These picture is truly no joke, but a very good image with the old brown color of 80 year ago.
You play wonderful with light and shadows, also lovely curving street
Good depth and perspective.
Composition and presentation are excellent. TFS.
Have a nice week,

Ciao cara IF
A beautiful photo, timeless and superbly post-processed in sepia. You have composed it very carefully with great effect. I love the POV and the sharpness. A truly beautiful photo, congratulations.
A lovely photo of your father, what a great tribute to him. He must be so proud of his daughter too. I can see where you got your blonde beauty from too!
adramad (27544) 2012-04-10 9:35
How wonderful image to sepia toning with this, it could be a picture of 1912, as the charming image of WS. excellent work, the prospect of this street from the arch curve is a superb POV.
Happy start of the journey. See you.
macjake (39207) 2012-04-10 10:36
what can i say...well done.
with this tall arches, 9 out of 10 people would photograph them standing far back to include the entire arch...but here, you have the arch cut, i really like that.
its a totally different look.
my other favorite part are the buildings on the left sided wall, they are so sharp.
bayno (16141) 2012-04-11 1:51
an image made of beautiful curves and vertical lines, excellent perspective provided by your lovely POV, I like the colors and the light very well managed, fascinating shot, excellent work in PP with the aging, beautiful WS, clothes seem a little feminine, elegant and clean, but your father with the look a bit sad...
to night i fly back...

kennyblack (4105) 2012-04-11 2:17
Cool sepia of a view from under the 'arch. Beautiful at first sight for perfect composition and POV.Very detalied and fine light management. Thanks for having posted.
A greeting and have a nice time ... Marino
holmertz (26876) 2012-04-12 12:05
Exactly today, April 12, my father would have been 107 years old. I guess it would be possible to post an even older workshop than yours.
But there's no need for that. This photo really does look old enought. With the sepia treatment, the old buidings and nothing modern to disturb the view it could have been taken 100 years ago.

Ciao Malgorzata, bella l'inquadratura attraverso l'arco, affascinante il risultato ottenuto con la delicata conversione in seppia, sembra di tornare indietro nel tempo, splendida luce e ottima nitidezza, brava, buona Domenica, ciao Silvio
annjackman (13177) 2012-04-17 22:17
I like the sepia treatment of this image and the arch that frames the street scene. It gives a wonderful 'old' feeling. I enjoyed your WS and your note. A super contribution to TE.
Best wishes, Ann
