Thanks for your kind comments folks! Yes I did re-enter this for the theme contest this month!

This was shot in RAW mode, Nikkor 28mm, 1/20 sec at F14, Cokin Blue/Gold Polarizer. For post processing I did curve adjustment and then used Craig Minielly's photoshop action called shadow soft and painted back the detail in the truck only. You can purchase Craig's outstanding actions at - http://www.craigsactions.com

Some of you wanted to see the original so here it is.

I now have a "thing" for rusty, old, and copper patina!!!!!! This is a WOW shot especially with color-popping! My pic of friend's old dump-truck, with foliage growing around it was something I entered but lacking the pop of this. Also, thank-you very much for helping solve my gallery glich!!! HELLO MARY LEMLEY, TRY REFRESH BUTTON NOW AND AGAIN!!LOL!!!!
