I've been passing this old digger daily for ages thinking 'must get a shot of that'. Trouble is there's always vehicles penning it in. Today was my lucky day, nothing about so went back and took the opportunity. Tinkered a bit in PS, hope I've done it justice.

ISO200, 1/8s, f/14

Thanks to all for comments on previous upload.

To be honest Im not sure mate. Looks a bit over sharp for me! which makes the tyres look over black and un natural and the top looks almost a yellow green. I woulld be inclined to mono it and some serious burning to bring out what could be a fantastic digger shot. Only mho

Thanks for the feedback guys, and thanks for the crit Chris. Closer would be well over-contrasty to be honest, it's a process/look I haven't mastered yet. And thanks for the mono idea. Weird, I tend to mono most shots just to see but for some reason I went for popped colour with this without a thought for B&W.
