A couple of old leather valises / hatboxes in a little anteroom at Monte Cristo … a beautifully restored historic home at Junee (NSW, Australia). Junee also boasts an amazing licorice and chocolate factory … ! Well worth a visit.
Processed in Photomatix (single jpeg x 3 at 0.3ev) and fiddled in CS3.
Another photo of rust blended in to complete the aged look and take away from distracting surroundings!
