Almost a last minute decision, Cuppa and I travelled to the Willow Place Inn in Hudson Quebec for our official anniversary day, the 17th. After a long trip of shunpiking, we were rather tired and ready to relax. That's when I took this photo of Cuppa looking out the window. Perhaps I'll post pictures of the view or of the trip in general some other time, but this post is just about Cuppa and this picture.
That's the original above, just as I took it with just a little cropping and mild adjusting. Then, I thought this one was worthy of experimentation. First, I applied a few filters to give it a painterly look (note: they're all somewhat enlargeable by clicking on them).
So, wondered I, what would it look like in black and white. Here's the answer.
Finally, given the history and style of the Inn, I decided to go for sepia.
Somewhat unusually, I like all versions of this one and find it difficult to pick a favourite although I'd probably opt for the original if severely pressed. What about you?
