After all the rubbish weather we've been having, I've been delving through old pics and manipulating them. This one I have added a layer of texture, put it through Mr Contrast and Melancholytron (both Flaming Pear filters) and cropped a bit. I will upload the original too, if I can figure out how to do that with the new system. Please let me know what you think, and should I have bothered, etc. Thanks for looking. And thanks to everyone who has conspired to actually get me into double figures several times lately.

Hi Chris,

Well what else is ther to do on a rainy day Wink

Chris my understanding of Melancholytron is a claim that it "Make pictures moody, nostalgic, and sad", I'm not sure if you've achieved it with this image.

Chris if you use Elements/PS etc you can get a good contrast look by making a copy and turning it to B&W then in your blend modes select Overlay. Now reduce or boost different colours to get different effects, in the mod i've reduced the yellows and greens but boosted the reds a fraction to bring out the rust.

Chris, have a look and have a play with the sliders.

Take care
Martin

Dark. The toning gives an organic feel, I see this a relating to the Green Man tradition.
Dark green toning could be interesting...

I quite like the original Chris; maybe if you could isolate the subject a bit from the background, maybe even with only a bit of vignetting, and accentuate those lovely rust tones a bit.
