When I see old pictures like these, I always wonder about the young men in them. Did they survive the war or are they missing somewhere? Did someone cry for them? So many questions...
I wanted to play with this image a bit so I did a little selective desaturation using a sephia action in PS then toning back the red tones in that action. I added a texture layer and some grain. I then burned in the edges a touch to give it that antique feel. To do a total desaturation would have been an injustice to that beautiful red frame that someone once treasured.
