This is probably the most I've ever done with digital darkroom on any shot. I used alot of different filters including twirl, diffuse glow, wave, zig-zag, and I also made some adjusments to contrast and color. This was originally a shot of a door handle.

Exif: F Number: 8, Exposure Bias Value: -2.00, ExposureTime: 10/40 seconds, Flash: did not fire, compulsory flash mode, ISO: 50, White balance: Auto white balance, FocalLength: 28.04 mm, Model: SP550UZ
