What a great imitation of the old time photos Abert! You have such wonderful imagination and creativeness in your portraits!! I love the edges, the sepia tone and the pose right down to the lack of a smile. The one thing that I noticed while putting together with my brother our photo family tree was the absence of smiles in the early days: Maybe this link will give you some addtional ideas? #6329153

Murry, Thanks for warm words! I collect for a long time old photos. They inspire me and often serve as a good example. I do not try to follow principles of a photo of last time precisely. Therefore models in my photos can, laugh to cry, express other emotions. For important that a post process has underlined mood which I wished to transfer. Many thanks for the link! It has appeared very interesting resource. I will necessarily see all photos on your site. Thanks! #6330741
