Hiking into a Polaroid (3/3)

I like the look of old Polaroid rollfilm images. I constructed this image from a modern shot of a hiking trip. I used the border and defects (from uneven spreading the developer) from a found Polaroid image. As framed, the shot looked much like an original Polaroid snapshot of a group traversing the upper rim of Valea Cerbului (The Cerbului Valley). I hated to clip two remaining hikers, so I left them walking into the frame.

 

You can see a cropped version of the original here.
