Enter, the Dragon

By chase
During a raid on my neighbours' barn he found half a dozen old oil cans ( one of which I have been looking for ,for a long time ) Then he pulled out the blow torch from under a bench, covered in cobwebs and muck.....oooooo, just my 'thing'.
The three smaller cans are on loan from him, the big red one is one of my recent acquisitions.

Lit by daylight.
3 frame HDR, merged in Lightroom and finished in Photoshop.
I added the smoke just for a bit of fun and to 'fit' the title Wink the version is without the said smoke.

Thanks for dropping by.
Constructive critique and mods very welcome.

Thanks all.
Pleased you like the smoke Brian Wink Surprising what folk prefer, a fairly 'straight' image...for me anyway... or one with a brushful of smoke but, personally, I like the smoke one better too Smile
