The Old World
As a young boy I have always dreamed about timemachines and traveling into the past. Or is it that I want to master and stop time? Anyhow, getting older makes me more and more nostalgic I guess... New images comes first in the gallery.

I have come back often to this gallery and every time Im fascinated by the excellent taste of this choice of post-processing, which is very wisely balanced and enhances the images, without overwhelming too heavily their visual impact.

Il y a quelques galeries dont je me dis : Ah, si seulement je savais faire cela ! Et bien, celle-ci en est une. Oui, un voyage dans le temps. Vraiment bravo. Le plus frappant est l'accord entre le sujet et le style.

I need to spend a lot more time going through this gallery, but it's overwhelmingly good! You have a great variety of processing techniques here which are all subtly different, yet cohere to create this feeling of age and lost memories that builds on itself as one passes from image to image. Truly superb work! V.
like a journey into an another world! great art, treatment and very inspiring. V

Congratulations Jean-Luc. It's an absolutely brilliant gallery. A true, much needed "breath of fresh air" in the most popular galleries. Your visions of the past beautifully constructed with an intelligent post-processing.
Very well done.
Outstanding work, excellent tones and mood, a real masterpiece. Vote.
I love the mood of these photos, like treasures from another time. V
an inspirational gallery. Congratulations v
Beautiful, artistic work fills this amazing gallery. Each image stands on its own. Wonderful gallery. V
If only galleries like this were No. 1 in the popular galleries instead of likes of what we have today, pbase might still be something to be proud of. This is a stunning gallery, recalling the magic of late 19th photography. I never declare my vote anymore but I will for this one.
Very interesting work and gorgeous treatment, V
This gallery is outstanding. Very creative and interesting. Voted.
I think all the others comments have said it all, amazing post processing and subject matter that is quite convincing of the effect. Great work!
