    ^^I agree with Taz, "wow" was the word that came out of my lips when I saw this! Great "rusty" feel.

    Many thanks, I wanted to convey some angst and helplessness, apparently it worked!

    I like this shot and the 1:1 frame is really suiting it well. I don't attach the mentioned emotions to it, but it's still a very pleasing visual to look at - lot's of things to discover on it.

    Very nice, fellow. You once commented that one of my shots was " right down my alley ". We're even now :) as I feel that way about this. Great job.

    If God wanted me to touch my toes, he would have put them on my knees.

    Thanks for the comment and kind words Will and Tom. It has taken me years to beat the fear and frustration of working in photoshop, but now I'm committed to climb that very steep and very long learning curve...

    Fascinating. I think I'm fairly competent in Photoshop and I have no clue how you did this. :)

    It was a bit of beginner's luck, but not a complicated process. I had a pic of a manhole cover that I had "rustified" and a pic of the very cool hands that I had converted to BW, both old pictures. I imported the manhole cover as background and the hands as a smart object and played with blending modes, that's all.
