The Forgotten Son

By digicammad  
Robbie and I spotted this during a walk up to Kentmere a couple of years ago. I've not been able to get the best out of it before but with some recently learned LR techniques I've had another bash and am pretty happy with the results.

You don't often see Fordsons these days and this one looks as if it would be worth a renovation project (if I had the time, money and skills).

Thanks for looking, all feedback welcome.

Ian

Nice shot that Ian, and I think your moono treatment is carefully balanced and brought out the best in this.

The tree looks like it is reaching out to comfort this poor lost tractor. Mono suits it beautifully.

I hadn't thought of it like that Joline, I was thinking of shelter, comforting sounds good. Smile

Thanks

Jeff other than lightening the tree a little I can't put my finger on what you have done, care to describe your mod?

Nice one bud. It looks a bit forlorn sitting there. I like the mono, it suits.
