Looks a little bit washed out over the front of the tractor. Cropping is still a little tight. You cut off the rear of the tractor a bit. Keep working at it. It has great potential. It's a nice old tractor. Sorry for all of the short sentences... I'm getting sleepy... :D

Shampoo sounds like an unfortunate name for a hair product.

That Sepia still seems a little off. It might be me maybe. Is there a way you can upload the original photo and let me/us take a stab at it?

OK...Let me ask you this though...If you weren't looking for sepia, how does it look?

It looks OK. But it looks as if you converted to B & W and added a yellow color layer over it. I'm not big on color layers except to correct color. Others may like this. To me it's just too yellow.

I'm using Nik Silver Efex Pro 2 to make these. If you're into B & W Photography then this filter is probably the one to get. It works with Photoshop & Lightroom (I use the Photoshop filter).

This one is Antique Plate

And this is one of my favorites called Wet Rocks.

With this filter you can edit out the grainyness in the first two. I'm running out of time otherwise I'd post more variations but I think you get the point. And for $150 this filter set is well worth it if you're in to black & white photography.

Me too. Each one of these took me about 2-4 minutes to process too.

Since you stated earlier that you wanted an "old image" feel, the treatment in cameraman's second edit would be a viable choice. It's sepia/faded photo look does give a feeling of antiquity. There is very little I would change. Perhaps a bit more sepia coloring, a touch of brightness and contrast and a moderate crop to tighten it up a bit?

Moderate edit below - but it honestly comes down to personal preference at this point.

The composition/angle of this image is far superior to those previous, Eric. Good job. I think you're getting very close to hanging something on the wall.

Regards,
Mark

Composition can’t be reduced to a set of rules ... Dissonance has its place in photography as well as music. If we confined ourselves to major and minor scales, the blues wouldn’t exist. Rules are tools, not laws.” ~ James Martin
