Well not really, I took this photo in 2016 and was messing around with it in Lightroom with some selective softening and desaturation to try and recreate an old timey postcard feel with this scene at the Jasper Park Lodge. 

Nikon D4, 200-400VR @200, f5.6, 1/320, 250 iso, hand held, cropped to 8 by 10.

A very successful interpretation Gary. Love the subtle glimpses of colour showing through. That and the softening around the edges most certainly does give it an old postcard feel, and more importantly, makes it all the more enjoyable to view. Very well done.
Make your life spectacular!

Definitely a very successful processing, I love the effect of the plant leaves very much.

A must click to fully appreciate this one! I love your composition, the placement of the couple on the seat, and your gentle and sensitive ageing of the scene overall. A big success in my book, Gary. Beautifully done!

WOW!
Absolutely love this!!!
Love the elderly couple on the bench ....perfectly placed. One wonders if they are thinking of their times at JPL 50+ years ago.
It certainly brings me back to the days my parents and I would be there
