As always, a great collection of submissions, which leads to a long time for the judge to view and ponder. This site always humbles me. As a photographer, you always think your stuff is pretty good....until you see what others can do. But this is also the best way to learn. So sticking to recent tradition, I give you three Honorable Mentions, and my top three picks.

Honorable Mentions

Besides a really great job in post processing, this photo looks an awful lot like my grandfather, whom I never met as he passed away in 1931 when my mother was just 4. I had an emotional attachment as soon as I saw it.

As a train lover, this image really appealed to me. I love the contrast, and the sun's reflection off of the side of the car. Well thought out capture.

I expected Mr. Lincoln to walk out the front door. What more can I say?

Third Place Kirstenmary
Not all old pictures have to be black and white or sepia. There are a number of pictures of me as a child which have this 1950's National Geographic early Kodachrome tint to them. They are old. This is not, but certainly looks as though it was taken in that period. I would love to learn how to do this.

Second Place gpmerfeld
This image reminded me of early 20th century text books, where the publisher would colorize a sepia toned print. The details in the leaves, and the depth of field you would get from an old bellows camera really captured my eye.

First Place Viljamix
My first place pick takes "creating" old to an art form. The wrinkles and cracks, the coffee stains, all of it had me checking and rechecking the original vs. the reworked version. This is a close to perfect as you can get....and therefore gets the First Place Prize! Well done!!

A great job by all. Thank you all for allowing me to spend the time I did viewing your work. It was an honor and a pleasure.
Regards,
Chasp

First congrats to the winners and HM.

As Chasp points out the most interesting with the contest is to messure your self against all good photographers. out there.
It's probably not always you agree with the referee who should have the top position, in this case it was no discussion.
To rank the rest was maybe a harder job. Look forward to the next challange.
