Back to the '80s

Thanks for visiting my travel galleries. Please feel free to leave your comments!

The photos were taken during my short visit to Amsterdam, Paris and Rotterdam in 2007; my first visit to Europe after I moved to Singapore 5 years ago.

These are experimental photos after some photo processing: I merged two layers, one in true colours, and one converted in sepia at 50% opacity. The result is a photo with faded colours as if it was taken in the '80s (hence the gallery title) and this approach gives a more authentic look than de-saturating the colours.

For comparison, the first photo of Amsterdam is in two versions, in true colour and in faded colours.
