Old style photo

I went to see the Felice Beato photo exhibition in Milano. I knew this photographer for many years. The work Felice, of British photographer from Italian father, is really interesting, he was one of the first photographer to take pictures in East Asia and to etablish a photo studio in Japan, in Yokohama. His life was interesting and there is a movie about it: Felice Felice!
This was the inspiration for this vintage looking photo final treatment, of a portrait I shoot this winter in Kitakata. I'm not a great fan of exagerated digital post production, but in this case it was fun and the effect is nice. Moral, use watever you find useful to you, to express your ideas.
