This looks like it could have come out of a old book. Great processing.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Bandoras!

I agree with the others, Ginnie, the old look is excellent here. And fog is perfect for the scene!
Ginnie Hart: I am such a glutton for fog, Alex. Thank you.
Fantastic composition Ginnie and and why not snow you were up north....we still have a foot of snow!!!....i love your treatment...it accentuates the age of the wharf and the Old Schooner tied up at the dock....well done....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: I should have known you'd say something about the snow, Peter! grin Actually, we saw people cross-country skiing while we took the train from Bergen to Oslo this past Sunday. Milking it to the very last second possible. Thank you kindly.

There's lots of atmosphere in this picture Ginnie: I like your subtle selective colouring too
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Chris. I didn't actually selective color but that's what came through in the processing. Thank you for noticing. smile
Hello Ginnie, I like this atmosphere in the morning in ports(bearings), let us hoist the sail, and let us follow gulls, kiss, good day..
Ginnie Hart: Hoist the sails, Matey, for this weekend! smile Merci, Pierrot.

Oh, I thought we were still in Holland - oh, it is your very fine processing style - only one look and I know it is a Ginnie- photo! (I remember Oslo fjord full of big ships, old sailing ships, and we visited one ship now equipped as a museum.)
Ginnie Hart: This was taken just outside the Fram Museum, Philine, also near the Kon Tiki museum. It really was that foggy! We loved it because the day before it was sunny. Hartstikke bedanke. Yes, it could have been taken here in Holland. smile

Oooooh, I love that sepia toning. Good to have you back Ginnie, did you have a good time?
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, dear Chantal. We had a GREAT time! I'm tackling all the pics as we speak. smile
This picture could be 100 years old ginnie. Lovely shot
Ginnie Hart: Almost as old as I am, Bill! grin Thanks.
Well processed Ginnie, an ageless picture.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.

I love the look and feel of this photo ginnie. very vintage.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Peter.
We moved to the era of pirates and privateers. The sepia tones are very good, with a good scale. great job. A greeting.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Pedro. Gracias.
How interesting that we have both featured boats today Ginnie, this one looks like a sturdy sailing vessel
Ginnie Hart: It's Boat Friday, Stanley! smile Thank you kindly.
Didnt know you were on the supply ship for Scott of the Antartic Ginnie.Nice old aged imaged Ginnie.Boxed Brownnie.
Ginnie Hart: I think we all could have sailed off to the Antarctic that day, Mick. smile Thanks.

Well done Ginnie, this looks very old.
Ginnie Hart: It looked old that day, Chad. Thanks.
One could easily believe this was taken at the turn of the previous century. Oh for a time machine smile
Ginnie Hart: You're a sweetheart, John. Thank you.

Beautiful! It's cold but beautiful there I guess.
Have a nice weekend!

Very Turneresque, was my first thought whenI saw the thumbnail. On opening it, it could be a photo from a book about Scot of the Antarctic.

Nicely done.
Ginnie Hart: Since we were at the Fram museum when we saw this, Colin, Scot of the Antarctic is appropriate. You're very kind and it's nice to see you again!
Dang! I almost shivered when I saw this one...talk about 1880's vintage. Love it, Ginnie, really full of atmosphere and character. Where's Scott and Amundsen?
Ginnie Hart: Believe it or not, the Norwegian guy we were with has the last name Amundsen! smile We even saw a picture of the 'real' guy in the Fram Museum. Talk about history. I love it. Thanks, Alex.
Method and content meld together perfectly, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: You're a sweetheart, Michael. Thank you.
Lovely Ginnie. Perfect setting for the sepia and treatment. A great Boat Friday
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Janet. We do love Boat Friday, don't we! smile

It looks like 19th century. For sure your post-processing that is your trademark.

Looks like a Dutch Old Master. The subject matter really suits the treatment.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Ingrid. I'm so in love with the fog!
What a beauty, Ginnie! Great mood and composition; I'd almost use it for an etching. (and maybe I will if you wouldn't mind)
Ginnie Hart: Wim, I couldn't think of a greater honor! Hartstikke bedankt.

Indeed, it was really foggy!

This is so reminiscent of a Frank Meadow Sutcliffe photo.

He took photos of Whitby in th 18/1900s.

Very atmospheric smile
Ginnie Hart: I just Googled Frank Sutcliffe, Cherie, and I'm honored! Thank you!

As an old photo, this really cool processing. Great work, I like. Ginnie nice day.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Tede. Merci.
Kiss for you my Ginnie, bon week end...
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Sweetie. Merci.
Beautiful photo Ginnie! I could really feel the texture of the photo smile
Ginnie Hart: Tusen takk, Charles. We had such a great time seeing Norway, even in the fog!
Wow!

I intended to leave merely "Wow!" as my comment and it got rejected for being too short! It's a good thing that Blogger doesn't reject me for being too long-winded...
Ginnie Hart: Are you serious, DB? That may have been a Mercury Retrograde fluke because I have sometimes left a comment of only a smiley face. Hmmmm. But anyway, THANK YOU. Hartstikke bedankt. Tusen takk. smile
Cuckoo my Ginnie, this morning, I publish a photo of your hands, kisses, good Sunday...
Ginnie Hart: HA! If you ever see hands like that, Pierrot, you will know they're not mine...or that I have Alzheimer's. |grin But merci anyway.

Definitely not yours, but a 19th century Oslo photographer, Ginnie - come on, fes up smile
You might like mine of today - it's the Portuguese church I mentioned last year, following up a comment from you on the picture of, I think, azulejos on the exterior of a Portuguese church.
Ginnie Hart: You're very kind, Tom. I'll never forget the feel of that day. Thanks. And I LOVED your image of the Portuguese church. Oh my.

Beautifully presented. An almost Dickensian scene.

Une photo sortie tout droit d'un livre de contes... Le brouillard et le traitement de ton cliché sont de toute beauté.
