Old-time landscapes in the digital age

I have always liked the old glass-plate photos from the late 1800s and early 1900s. I have tried to create that look here. The weather has been less than ideal for photography so I had to try something different.

This scene is of Mimosa Rocks. Taken with an Olympus E-P3 and 12mm f/2 lens. I have used a HiTech 10-stopper to extend the exposure to 6 seconds and of course given it a black and white treatment. I think I have captured the feel of the old photos.

Oh, something the photographers of old may have not been able to do - the shot is actually a 4-frame panorama taken in portrait mode.
