3. Theme 206 ~One~

Chapter 1 from “Our Own Birds – A Familiar Natural History of the Birds of the United States” by William L. Baily.  No, I didn’t read it! : )   I think I prefer the color version.   It really should be enlarged to appreciate the full effect.

  1. I like this. I like the sort of sepia, old color processing on it. Neat interpretation.

    when I go to the first of the two pictures I get the answer “File not found”; must say, I like the two pictures in different colors; the blur conducts the eyes of the observer to the meaning of that all: “one”. Well done!

  3. The sepia adds to the feel of this image. Nice processing to bring the theme into focus.

  7. My choice is the sepia image. It presents an older looking book.

  8. I like the top shot too, what great texture. Odd that clicking the image itself didn’t work.

    I prefer the color one–the B&W has some color artifact, and the tones are too cool. Sepia wprks better for this antique book.

  10. I like the sepia because it makes the book more vintage looking. A nice use of depth of focus also.
