Wood, Barrels and Rope at Busch Gardens by 

This was taken at Busch Gardens in Tampa, Florida, shot in RAW and developed in Adobe RAW editor. I converted it into black and white in Adobe CS4.

From there I converted the black and white image into sepia tones and burned and dodged the image to heighten the contrast.
