Last one.

For now.

Crop is quite tight. Other input, suggestions for processing?
Thanks.

Scott; I like it. You are like the "Rust - Pro". I had to play with it in LR4. Image one is with a clarity boost of +50; Vibrance +25; & Highlights +25.
Image Two is my "Norman Rockwell - ish" Blended with your original at 50%..
I would like to say that I do not work on images to show some superiority, but because I have time on my hands and I love playing with the processing. Jim

I always like a sharp everywhere well exposed image. Guess that's the techie in me. And this is one.

Good find Scott,

I reworked - to me the visual blast of color detracts from the subject...cropped from top, dialed back saturation, mid-tone contrast bump, little clone/cleanup, little vignette...

Might not be in tune with what your visualization, but

Regards,

Bob

I really like the way oldrattler rendered this image in his version 'TWO'.

I like the original and have no suggestions for further tinkering or improvements.

oldrattler (forget what your "real" name is)
Playing with my images is always OK. Its in my profile.
And I do it myself both as practice and to see if I can come up with either an improvement over the OP or a viable alternative vision.

I like both versions, including the Normal Rockwell blend. Despite the fact that I do not like Norman Rockwell. Maybe it works because this was taken less than 50 miles from the Rockwell museum in Stockbridge MA.

Glad I got the technical down right. Thanks for commenting Ben.

Bob,
Yes, a different vision.
And despite the bump in vibrance and saturation that I had made, I would say the reality was closer to my version! I am leaning towards your crop.

These subjects are fascinating but it is extremely difficult to capture well with the usual clutter strewn about. I think you did well but like Bob's tighter crop. You could try selecting the car and render the background out of focus which might help with the distractions.

The "rust" on the trees works in well with the rust on the vehicle. Nice analogy, great photo.

Took a stab at it ...

Mostly some subtle tweaks @ selective desat using the red channel for a mask, and some selective sharpening, levels tweak ... and the crop.

As always, S&P to taste.

Breaking my usual rule to overlook rusted vehicles....

Maybe darken (gamma boost) the background and foreground, and mid-tone bump and sharpen?

I like the color of your leaves better in the original.
