I think the sepia style makes it look even colder than it is. But looks like a nice peaceful place.
A sense of loneliness felt in the picture.But it looks beautiful in sepia :)
Nice shot but I'll save the picnic for summer.
Love the lines and shadows and your framing!
nice sepia photoMy first entry sepia this week : in HERE. Hope you have time to visit . Thanks
okay, with a warm blanket to sit on, and hot chocolate I'm game for a visit.
I love the shadows. Lovely in sepia. Sun, but not enough to really melt the dusting of snow.
miranda - I thought so too but cold can have a certain beauty at times napaboaniya - I was all alone in this giant park! it's the same place I took the basketball shots below and I have some of the playground for another day. I have never been alone there!! It was odd and eerie and kinda fun loleven the squirrels and birds weren't theredot - I kept thinking - well at least I wouldn't need to bring ice! lolcarletta - oh thanks!! lines fascinate me and I was hoping to capture them. weathered wood is also very pretty to me but sepia distorts that. the daily - welcome to sepia scenes - I will visit :)judi - I had a mug of coffee and it went cold very quickly!! bobbie - I love the shadows too! I have a few more from this day for Sunday's shadow shots :)
Love the photo, but I'll take a raincheck on the picnic.
It doesn't LOOK so cold in sepia! Looks rather inviting I think!
Oh, Yes! This is lovely, lovely shot!
Brrr...I like the way you've processed this, and the framing definitely adds to the antique feel.
jan - I don't blame you! I was freezing and I was there for less than a half hourmelli - thanks :)rose - thanks :)robin - Brrrrrr!! indeedalthough it was so nice to be alone in the parkI added the framing because of that dark object over on the lower right - if I remember correctly it was some wood thing protecting a box that led to the lights for the soccer field. I was leaning over a fence to get this shot since the gate to the picnic area was closed (gee wonder why) and I thought I had that thing out of the framewith the added old photo effect it took away from that thing
Hooray! You found some sun. Every time the sun comes out I grab my camera to search for a good photo. Rare these days. LOLThe temperature seems a bit cold for a picnic. I'll take a raincheck. How about May?Nice photo, Dianne!
Great sepia effect.
EG - if not for the sun I might not have stayed to take any photos! May sounds good to me :)ilanadavita - thank you :)
Most excellent and it reminds me of Claremont Park in the Bronx back when I was a kid
Lovely sepia shot! Summer picnics :O)
The framing around it gives a kind of voyeuristic feeling to it. Like it was taken through a a window that hadn't been taped quite well enough before it was painted. And still had paint on the glass.Honestly if it didn't look so inviting it might be a little creepy!
I would prefer to have a picnic in the summer ... But it is a very nice place!
That's lovely, Dianne! Don't bother with Photoshop - you're right it is very complicated! Mo, used Photobucket to do a half sepia photo and it came out beautifully! Check out It's a Blog Eat Blog World... :)
Hi!Great Sepia Shot!! It looks so lonely, just waiting for someone to have a seat! Thanks for stopping by my place. Have a great day!!Sherrie
daryl - I used to go to Claremont! My uncle lived up there for awhile.Maybe we played on the see-saw together - I was the chubby red headed kid with an attitude ;)babs - thanks :)In the summer this place is packed mojo - well now this is saying something about how your mind works - and I love it ;)mamapippia - me too!!mary - I was signed up to take a Photoshop class when I hurt my leg - and it's a 3 story walk up :(I would love to master it - it can do so much sherrie - in the summer it is packed with families :)
I never would have thought of making that sepia, but it really looks good.
Looks good in sepia! Me....I'd wait for it to be just a little bit warmer!!! Brrrrrrr!!
rambling - the wood tones gave me the idea. I'm still not that good with sepia so I look for warm hues that might lend themselves to sepia magiceye - thanks :)bermudabluez - thanks!! I'm definitely waiting for it to be warmer ;)
First of all, I love the vignetting, perfect for this. Second, knowing how cold it was it seems to be asking a question: to sit a spell or to enjoy the view and then dash to the car!
PJ - thanks!! I was glad I thought of the frame :)I couldn't sit even if I wanted to - the gate was closed and I'm no climber lol
It looks bleak,like the season. Nice capture of a mood, and I like the frame at the edges.
Definitely too cold for a picnic but I do love the sepia treatment of this photo.Hugs and blessings,
