Goodnight in Sepia

The stuffed animals read to each other at bedtime.
The stuffed animals read to each other at bedtime.

I made this sepia in Photoshop by desaturating the photo and then moving the color sliders to increase the yellow and magenta. For more information see Sepia Scenes. Happy Thanksgiving to those who celebrate!

I also submitted this to Thursday’s Challenge (this week is “soft”: Feather, Pillow, Cushion, Chair, Soft Focus, Soft Drink, Fluffy Animals or Toys, Hair,…).

Do the stuffed animals want a drink of water too?

Mojo says

Are you going to submit that for the new Thematic Photographic theme too? ("Sweet")

Very cute. I remember Goodnight Moon. From waaaay back.

Papa bear and baby bear. How sweet.

Mojo, do you think I should? For sweet? I was thinking of the Thursday Challenge, "soft". Maybe.

The Jewish Side says

those books sound familiar!

cute how the baby bear is looking at the book, while the papa bear is looking up, and looks like he has a worried expression on his face.

and nice picture, the sepia tone is perfect for it!

Rose says

This looks like a classic.

Robin says

How sweet. My kids loved both of those books too.

Shinade says

What an absolutely fabulous idea. And I love the story Goodnight Moon!! And of course who doesn't love teddy bears?

Great Job!!

I am late because my PC was down this week.

I hope you have great week end!!:-)

me ann my camera says

You have achieved a great sepia result! I basically used the same method you did for my sepia tone today. Each week there seems to be another way to experiment to work from colour to sepia. I also have a fixed lense Sony which has a wonderful sepia setting on it.

I know the story,'Goodnight Moon', a good choice for Teddy. Lovely picture.

Carletta says

This is precious Leora!
