Beneath an old drilling rig


This picture wasn’t at all pleasing straight from camera, but I thought it was good material for B&W conversion. My first idea was to create regular B&W and give it more “punch” by playing with contrast and levels. While I was working on it I tried “old photo look” treatment and was quite pleased with result. However image still didn’t have enough “punch” ;-) I ended up with idea to create “old photo look” showing extremly dirty, oily and rusty mix of steel and wood. I hope you’ll like it.
