Sepia toned photographs

Sepia tone is a personal favourite because I love how old pictures look. It is used either as a filter or added in photoshop mostly to transform modern photos into old ones. It lends a brownish tint to the picture that creates an old-fashioned effect. Well, I've tried to attempt just that, let me know what you think.

 This was taken en route to Old Goa. I really like the long stretch of endless road seen here.

This is a picture of Jodhpur station, taken from the overhead foot bridge. One of my all-time favourites.

I took this at a monastary in Sangla, Himachal Pradesh. I love clicking prayer wheels; I think there is something immensely effortless and peaceful about moving the prayer wheels.

This one is an original shot. No Photoshop. I love the way the light fell just perfectly on the prayer flags.

Thanks Jso!
@Elton: The first 2 were clicked on my Sony camera phone with the sepia mode. The 3rd I clicked in colour, then added the sepia tone in Photoshop. The 4th was clicked in natural light.

The location of your first photograph is Ribandar, they dont widen the road because the salt pans are on one side and the river on the other. Thought you might like to know ;)
