Old Photo, BSG-Style

Okay, I know that usually, art goes in the art forum, but this is distinctly BSG-themed, so I thought you'd appreciate it more here, but if a Mod wants to move it, please do so.

I wanted to try my hand at making an old sepia-toned photo, in nuBSG style, like an old photo from the pioneer era, of people with massive families, wearing their Sunday finest, and wearing serious looks.

So, I found an old pioneer-era photo, that was pretty light, upped the sepia-tone look to it, added a very slight blur, just to smooth it out, and put the final BSG touch on it. Hope you enjoy.

I think he's referring to the missing corners?

Except that archived photos like this often have the corners covered anyway.

Yeah, I'm not sure I get it either. Aside from the missing corners, I don't know what makes this a "BSG-style" photo.

I've seen more than enough photos while watching BSG that weren't sepia.

Just out of curiosity, do you know what year this photo was taken?

Are they all cylons or just the ones staring vacantly off into space?

I never understood these old photos. Were they always specifically asked to NOT look into the lens?

They're younger and more "up with the times".

Would you BSG fans like to see a picture of my cat next?
