Nice one Billy. Lots of texture. Plenty of that in Donegal with the sea air

Hi BillyGrin Great bit of rust you have taken here, lots of crusty textures and coloursGrin
I have done you two mods, in the 1st one, I have corrected the exposure and desaturated it quite a lot after correcting the colour, I think there is a bit too much red in this, and a bit over saturated as a whole. A lot of rusty images are way over done as people think rust is all about colour, where it is also the texture. Oversaturating often takes away a lot of the texture in rust, in my opinion, better to reduce the saturation and then up the contrast a bit. There is some noise in the image, I have learnt while being on EPZ that if you reduced your ISO to 100 you wil get less noise in a close up.
I gave it a tiny noise reduction by applying a jpeg artifact remover (I have this on my software) If I applied noise reduction it Wiped off all the detail. In the second mod I have just removed more red, just to show what a difference too much red can do to a rusty image. Love photographing rust, it is all so different and there is always some rust begging for a photo shootGrinGrin Hope this helps, Look forward to your next rusty shot!

I may be getting converted, this is the third rust shot I have clicked on today. Cracking detail and plenty of rust.

Nothing like a bit of rust to make us feel good! Grin
I can't help with the technical side of it, but I think it's a good subject. IB
