By golly, the rust's even corroded the sky! Never trust an oxidizing insomniac.

Diggin' it .. maybe pull back on the sat a touch, or not?

I keep going TLC ... and thinking about Van Gogh's "Starry Night". Which I'm kinda diggin' too.

Excellent Bob. Frameworthy for sure.
Fine creative vision and execution.
Since we are supposed to find some suggestions, maybe less dark vignette lower left, a bit more shadows opened up in the cab?
Love to know how you are doing this, finding the texture overlays, etc.

AuntiPode,

Thanks for looking, more appropriate title would be Rust-over-Rust as that more accurately describes the process. But then being a Kiwi you already are familiar with rust I should think

Best,

Bob

Thanks for the suggestions Scott,

I can never correctly predict the printed look - will use that as a baseline. This will join the earlier version (recall broken headlamp - right front fender?) and about exhausts my cull of the Shaniko series.

How? Place image (usually texture) over the background (CS6 File->Place). Adjust opacity, blend mode, sizing, and add mask/brushing on/off portions of the texture if necessary. 'bout it. I do not know of anyway to do this with LR, not to say there isn't one.

I found the textures as free downloads somewhere on the internet. Now, if I spot something that might be useful later, I grab a capture and use later if appropriate. Subjects - rusted metal work, charcoal grill grating, and most recently although I missed it, the interior of a construction dumpster - paint, dings, rust, scratches, the whole deal - but it was filled and removed the next day. Procrastination - one of my stronger suits.

Too, you can create grunge brushes to paint effect, although I've tried and discarded as too much work.

A look I happen (at the moment) to like, obviously not for everyone.

Regards,

Bob

FWIW, I've lived here seven years and have dual citizenship, but Kiwis would deny I'm a Kiwi. The American accent gives me away.

Great image Bob. An image you can process in numerous ways. Agree with Scott about opening up the shadows in the lower left corner.
