An Old Engraving

by Patrick Werick February 04, 2010

This particular image is a photograph of an an antique, hand-colored engraving. In this case, we wanted to leave the look of the original image intact as much as possible. This is why it still has an overall 'brown' look and also why you can see the plate marks around the border of the image.

 

Title: St. John Lateran's   |   Artist: Piranesi
