Old Doll From Old Times

Old Doll From Old Times 

Saturday Self-Challenge: Vintage/Retro - take a new photo of your choice and make it look like it's from an earlier era.

I had several different options for a subject to decide on in this challenge; old teddy bears, old toys, even an old car. I picked this doll just because she looks so photogenic.

I have always had a fascination with antique bisque head dolls that were made during the late 1800s and early 1900s, and I have several in my collection. I recently found this very pretty doll in one of our local antique shops and could not leave without taking her home with me. She still needs a name. ;-)

I took the photo in full sunlight, then changed it to sepia and used a program to achieve the scratched up look.

John Linton, Charlie, Sylvie Coeffic, Juleann and 41 other people have particularly liked this photo

It's so good to see a doll again! She's a beauty and I can see why you couldn't leave without her. She would look great in the house I posted. ;)

A very nice effect here, Val. :)

Very clever post processing, Val. The photo certainly has the vintage look and I love the 'scratched-up' effect Romantic is the word that I'm searching for.

She is a lovely doll and you did a great job of making the photo look old. Names, names . . . whenever I read a book with interesting names I always think I should have someplace I write them down. A place to go when we get a new dog, for example.
