Old Bedford Village, Bedford, Pennsylvania, USA

This image is also available at Lois Bryan at fine art america in an exciting variety of framing and matting options.

Image taken at Old Bedford Village, Bedford, Pennsylvania on October 10, 2009. There’s a wonderful sense of having stepped back in time here.

Camera used Nikon D300, 18-200mm vr Nikon lens, shutter 1/250, ap f/10.0, exp 0.00, iso 640. Post processing included a light hdr from a single hand held image duped to evals of -2 and -4; a faint Orton; dodging, burning and a texture.

My thanks to Ghostbones at Flickr for the texture.

    Love the faint use of technique and not over processing. The angle give this a very inviting feel to it. Love it :)

  • Hi Cheryl … thank you … I was trying to get the feeling of an everyday walk down the street to the store … the lighting was key to this one, and I agree with you about the angle … it captured everything I was going for. Thanks so so much!!!

    My word Lois this is a beautiful picture and all your work on it has been so wonderfully well done. You have succeeded in capturing the atmosphere and transporting us back to those far off days of the past. An excellent piece of work indeed. Peter
