I want to make this look retro

Hi all,

I'd like to give this a retro feel. I've been playing around but can't seem to get the colors and tones the way I'd like. An eeriness might be cool too. I'd love for you to get your creative juices flowing, then tell me how you did it!! I am always wanting to learn new things. Thanks so much!!!

Also, what would be a good title???

Ooops. I just realized that I may be crossing boundries. I thought I could post this here for people to play. If that's not the case (which now I'm thinking it might be), please forgive me. I would love advice and guidance to help me achieve the retro look. Thanks again.

Re: I want to make this look retro

They're both great! Nisa, I love that sepia color! It works really well with this pic. Andy, I LOVE your version. Okay, I did it exactly as you explained and it's not coming out as good as yours. Mine has more contrast but I'm sure I'll be able to fix that. I wonder if adding texture would be too much. What do you think?

Thanks so much!!! I love both! It'll be hard to decide.

Re: I want to make this look retro

I love this too! I've tried different actions but none make it look this good. Where did you get the action or did you create it yourself?

Nice job. Thanks.
