    Great composition, I love all the crusty detail..never would guess this was a shovel..

  • Thanks, Kim! I’ve got another dozen or shovels that require closer inspection!
    I enhanced the detail with a high pass layer.

    The eye you hae for Abstract details is really powerful and creative.

    This is just stunning, a powerful photo from a simple tool.

    Nice stuff.

  • Many thanks for your generous comments, and for adding me to your watchlist.
