since I have been asked here is how this was colored. first of all I did a total sepia. Then I saved it and took it to a different program so the next step would not compormise the sepia tint. In the second program i tinted the backgorund blue... Then i sprayed a touch of red from the air brush then I blured just the back ground. I also tarnished the colors a little to soften them. I left some of the shadows to give it a little depth.

I should add that it is a paper negative on 4x5 paper Attached files http://f295.f295.org/uploads/bones1_2179.jpg (http://f295.f295.org/uploads/bones1_2179.jpg)

What a fun photograph! Will this camera live again or will parts be donated to the greater cause?

looks like some kind of Vest Pocket thing...I thought an Autographic, but the hinged standard instead of the (pantograph?/scissors) closure looks different.

If that's a 84 mm meniscus achromat variety (as opposed to 'Special'), there is soem popularity in Japan to put one of those wide open on a 35 mm camera (or a 6x6..might cover adequately, or useably) .

They have 'hot'/flare-y highlights, a bit like the zoneplate effect ,but not so much so.

Nice 'portrait' (in landscape). Nice series...

Did you ever mention WHICH software? Or is that not discussed...

the major filter is a freeware called photofilter... the detailed color is just a cheap shareware color pen software, nothing special. My paint shop pro doesn't have the pen it has the lasso thingie and is hard to work with for single pixel coloring.
