Default Old English Padlock

Hi Chums,
Noticed this old Squire padlock on the gate to the Forrest today.
Did a bit of burning on it. It was wet with rain and the sun was on it for a moment.
Cheers for looking.
Mark

Id like to see the first shot untouched. Im not too fussy about the sky and what has happened to it. But I like the shot. As Simon said its simple but you made it into something else.

Looks like you have this style of close up shooting all "locked up"! These are really good Mark. I am enjoying seeing your close up shots more and more. Those attachments you have are really turning out some very fine photographs, but your composition and choice of subject matter is artistically superior. You have really "keyed" my intrest in these shots!!!

Ch ch ch cheeers Bynxyyyy. Appreciate your thoughts. I made about 5 different edits to the pic.
When I found the lock I could see the first edit in my head and was really excited in the hope I could get that look. I knew the burning in of the sky and the tree would look unnatural and strange but thought that would work well with the unusual angle, the light and detail on the lock. I seem to have a leaning to a creepy spooky feel.
Ill post the Original so you can see that. Cheers Bynxy Mateyy.

" Locked up" Lol. "Keyed" Lol.
Cheeers Frank Mateeeeyyyyy. You is tooo kind, but I like it
I actually took this with my little panasonic compact, I left the slr at home cos of the rain. I put it on Macro mode and was amazed at the close focus on the lock. It's an amazing little camera.
Cheers mateyyyyyyy

I really quite like the b&w version. Really great eye!

Thank you for posting the original as well as it's always great too see a before and after so the rest of us can learn from your view.

Condorman , Those are great almost like ones I took of the Vets Cemetery 2 years ago...I prefer the B&W to the colour for that tree is an Eye sore in Colour while in B&W it looks evened out...while the up close shot is perfect.
