Recently I became aware of the gorgeous sepia tone images by big Island Photographer, CP Merfeld. He has inspired we to do a little sepia toning of my own, which is sending me off in a new direction.

Sepia: 1. Film whose color tends toward brown tones rather than shades of gray, giving the image an old-fashioned and sometimes dreamlike quality. Sepia also refers to the brownish color itself, as in sepia tones.

2. Brown color (as in sepia tones) resembling sepia, a brown pigment derived from the inky secretion of a cuttlefish.

amandarr6 REALLY love the book, I guess. :) i do, too...one of my all-time favorites of yours. i'll have to think about trying to do the same to some of my shots. I'm guessing contrast is good for these!

I was surprised to really like the sepia! Generally, it's the bright colors that draw me to flowers, but viewing them in sepia makes it easier to appreciate the lines and structure of the plants. Very cool.
