All dark and mysterious!
The book is the first from Lemony Snicket’s book series “A Series of Unfortunate Events” and is called “A Very Bad Beginning”. My 8 year old is on book 7 in the series now.
I think the original has a little sepia toning without any changes. I took the picture in the early morning and used our overhead lights for lighting. What do you think?
The second one, I changed the image to grayscale (Mode – GRAYSCALE) and then used Duotone (MODE-DUOTONE) to add the sepia tone. Remember to change it back to RGB.
For the third one I started with the Sepia and then after a levels adjustment, and a few other adjustments, added a vignette layer. Too dark, maybe?
