On the advice of several commenters it was reccomended that I take off the aged look and stay with a sepia tone. So here goes. Please comment as you see fit any and all suggestions are welcome. I normally do not enhance most of my work so this is virgin territory for me!

You'll find that everyone has an opinion and, as it relates to their personal experience of your work... their opinions are all valid. *wink*

I haven't seen the others, but I like these just fine!
The sepia tone adds some sense of age... maybe a little PP grain will make them feel a bit more weathered and authentic... but what's important is what YOU think of them, first and foremost!

I tried to add some oomph by aging it some. Let me know what you think. I really like it looks almost like tintype. I look forward to your opinion.

VERY authentic-looking!
(And I know a specific group on Flickr dedicated to PRECISELY this kind of photography... you'd be in good company!)

Well rendered! :thumbup:

Don't like the scratches, I feel the photo looks aged with the sepia as is, and its a great photo too, but didn't like the distraction of scratches.

Would realllly like to see the photo as is, without them.

Well done, thanks for showing.

I would have liked to see a little more background to tell that these are the faces of the civil war reenactments. Like show a cannon or some soldiers in the background. Had it not been for the 1994 Northridge earthquake, i could have shown you what i believe would have enhanced your work. I lost over 50,000 slides and negatives to that quake. I was only 3 miles from the epicenter. And yes i do like the aging of the union officer very much. it looks like the real deal.

Isn't it funny; we spend lots of time discussing how to and then doing the editing out of scratches, etc. from our old photographs.

The photo with the scratches really has the feel. There were some photographs from 1908 (??) posted here the other day. Could fit right in.
Could have fooled me.
