I captured this in a old street in Faro Portugal a few years ago and even though it not a good image with regards to the quality it has in my opinion a fantastic oldie charm, and I think of an old Italian movie scene. I love the antiquity of the street and the colouring.

I love this location, and the treatment you've given it. Even the flair seems to accentuate the filmic quality referred to in your title. I may have straightened the verticals a bit, and that triangle of orange in the bottom right corner needs removing; in all other respects you've got yourself a winner!

An image with an air of nostalgia to it. There are some imperfections but it has much charm and is well worth seeing.

A great title good observation over there. I would expect Marlon Brando to step out of that old car :-) Like the treatment given to the photo to suit the mood and justifying the title. Nicely done, thanks for sharing.

Really nice photo of the old times. I like the color you have used (ancient or sepia) that definitely shows the feeling of history. Good composition and subject; the old car, street and houses...all match. There is seen some orange color in both corners -up and down- on the right side. It is not a major thing but I probably would have cropped them off. Thanks for sharing.

I am old but these seems a lot older than I self, what of course not is perfect.
This is almost a dream image with a lot fantasia.
Very well composition, light and colours are excellent taken.
Nice done, TFS.
Have a nice day,

this is magic, full of old world and rustic charm. Your treatment and presentation here is just well - lovable - I suppose. Like it a lot!

The sepia tones gave a real sense of an old movie, Italian because of the Fiat500, or maybe just Portugees, whatever... nice taken Iain, anyway.
The old neighbourhood and the movement of the vhicle added charm and nostalgy texture.

Eye catching image which does appear like a European street scene from over half a century ago, for the beat up compact auto, brick street, narrow battered walls, and everything in a faded sepia tone.

I thought this has a real olde-worlde feel to it with the treatment to almost sepia tone, it just feel like a nice place to be at the time.... Love the antique look of the layout, this also reminds me of an old postcard and great to see a place that has not torn down the old for the newer sterile buildings. The classic car adds perspective, a lovely shot beautiful framing, Congrats. Tfs

Hello Iain - Great atmosphere with a distinct look of bygone times. I think the softness and colour of the shot adds immeasurably to its charm. Warm regards Rosemary

fantastic image with great atmosphere. Superb framing with lovely monochrome that brings out the best in the sense of nostalgia and old world charm. My compliments.

old Italian movie scene from Portugal. But it really has the charm of the old photo, Nice narrow street, I prefer without cars but this one here adds to the atmosphere.

C'est ce que je pensais: une image sortie d'un film, avant de lire la note! belle version du sépia un air du passé qui donne super bien

I could easly find many adjectives to describe this shot.To name a few-it´s brilliant,creative and for sure eye-catching.
The scene(I mean especially this old car)combined here with sephia creates truly unique atmosphere and let us feel like we were stepped back in time.
For me-pure artism!
Wish You a good day
macjake (67798) 2014-02-20 9:34
this one's great!
it truly does have that old time feel and grit to it.
and as you said, its not 100% sharp but it's almost as if this style of photo isn't suppose to be sharp :)
and it actually adds to the mystique and intrigue of it.
delpeoples (58074) 2014-02-25 5:23
Ahh that's definitely what it looks like: something straight out of a 1950s Italian movie. I love the vertical frame, the sepia post processing and the impressive details of the old car and characteristic architecture. Nice work, I love it.

This reminds meof a movie, inception! The way the buildings lean in like this is really cool, and the futuristic idea of that movie combined with the olde worlds charm of the sepia tone is a fascinating contrast. Love the head on view of the car, gives it tonnes of personality.

I think it antique looks make it a charming photo. Who can resist clicking on a TN with an original Fiat 500 in it? (One driven by a charming lady, too!) Well seen and cutely rendered!
