Made in Photomatix, Details Enhancer.

What caught my eye was the license plate saying, rather appropriatly, AGE - haha

i would crop this tight up to the two siver bucket things and old wheel rim you also have a lot of halo in the sky in fact maybe crop the worst of the halo out to the top of the cloud

both new versions you posted work for me :)

Thanks, the cropped version looks almost like a whole different shot, haha... Crop is such a wonderful tool...

Your version is intriguing. I like the softness of it. How did you manage that? It's a bit to dark in my taste, though.

It is a little dark just added a orton type effect in elements real easy to do in about five steps then you need to play with the levels to get the brighness right.

k thanks :) I'll see if I can find a Orton type effect, play around a little :)

EDIT : Found some Orton-like effects to play with... It may be to subtle...
