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.

Thank you for sharing all that Heather!
The original is great as well, but with the effect you went in and used just put it over the top! :) The trees and such just look amazing...such beautiful colors and neat subject!

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!!!!
