Wash Day

I thought about putting this in Disappearing Technologies (Man-Made) but decided Digital Darkroom (Techniques) was a better place for it. I found the set-up in a museum, cleaned out and simplified the background, added a pile of torn bags I'd photographed on a neighborhood walk for a texture, and turned the whole sepia.

Exif: F Number: 5, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 1/15 seconds, Flash: did not fire, compulsory flash mode, ISO: 400, White balance: Auto white balance, FocalLength: 30.00 mm, Model: DSLR-A350

I really like this old fashioned wash tub, and the treatment as well. #1722954

Ghostly, especially with the whatever flying thru in the upper right... :-) #11757894
