Khaki looks so natural in sepia, I was surprised to see "09"! Thanks for stopping by at This Way Thurs-Way :)

The sepia camouflage seems a natural on this gentleman. The uniform is reflective of someone who has a sense of duty, who is trained and ready to perform with a competent silence. Who is ready to fight as needed...

I like the sepiatone in this picture. It fits very well with enviroment and soldier's clothing. It looks very natural out

This photo seems so right for sepia even though it's actually a modern one.

Yes, I agree w/ the others, the sepia fits very well w/ his uniform

the scene seems so natural in sepia. I imagine that is the way the soldiers feel too. MB

Ralph summed up this shot very well. I was thinking the soldier was looking at you but continued his job without breaking his duty.
Great shot and perfect for the sepia rendering!

Fantastic. Sepia is the perfect tone for this. It captures a moment like a B&W, and it feels better than the blah tans of the sand and khakis.
