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
