Engine Driver 2

By Alan_Baseley  
An attempt at ageing. It'll probably sink without trace.
Converted to mono, grain added, slight vignette and then layer made partly transparent to give a hint of colour.

This is a great piece of work I just love how you have left that hint of colour in the driver.

Superbly composed and captured, whilst at the same time the processing adds to the charm Alan.
