This weathered paint subject was taken with macro setting on my first digital, a Mavica, outdoors in my yard in afternoon light. I treated the photo with sharpening, contrast and saturation filters, and then adjusted the color with hue and merge-cloud filters, all in Adobe photo suite. Final treatment was a slight emboss from Corel custom photo software.
