This is from the same set as these photos, taken over spring break. As you can see, this shot has more contrast, which is mostly because this is a blue channel exraction and the others were converted using straight desaturation. The lower contrast in the previous shots is also somewhat to blame on poor processing; if I were to do it over again, I would add contrast to the older two shots. All are sepia...I think it gives it a bit more texture.
Again, I am linking to a similar shot. The decision between these two was almost a complete toss up. I like the detail in the first shot, but there are many pleasing visual elements (paterns, etc) in the second. Your opinions would be appreciated.
