    This is so awesome Justin. How did you get the top of the image to blur out that with a focus on the child? Very cool. The sepia tones are perfect.

Very cool indeed! Do you also have an image without the blurring? I would love to see it both ways! Great job and good luck!!

Looks like infrared film to me...The sepia toning is essential to making this image work, I believe. I suspect a soft focus filter with a center "hole" allowing sharp focus was used. how close am I to the truth, Justin?

To do this I used Ilford high speed film, with vaseline on the lens. ( used a uv filter) I then Lith Printed the image w/ a European brand paper that gave it the warm tone.

glad ya guys liked it; it's my "money" shot

Awesome photo Justin. Very creative! I love the "ghostly" feel of this image. The Sepia tones are a nice compliment. Great Job!
