The blown out highlights at the top of the pic spoiled this pic for me, could be a much better pic with a bit of cropping? I like the sepia effect

The B&W works well, but it seems to be a little overexposed.

Love the idea with the title just feel the photo is over exposed.

The vintage look works very well here, but the whites are a little washed out for me. 7

i actually think this is a good use of sepia toning, which isn't very often. a lot of the shot is blown out though.

Seems a little grainy, but perhaps that actually adds to the photo... nice job

Ig you were going for that antique look, ok sort of. other than that the whites or blown out and it's a little dark everywhere else.

the overexposeur doesn't do anything to help the image to me.
