I visited Haines Point at lunch today. The weather, as you can see from the sky in the background, was rapidly turning sour. A light rain was starting to fall, and a cold autumn wind was kicking up in earnest. Looking around for an interesting subject, my attention was captured by this heavily modified boat tucked along the hillside. The mottled paint showed a significant amount of aging, and I truly wonder about the intended purpose of the boards that were added on top. With the tall grasses blowing in the wind on the crest of the hill, I thought it made an interesting overall scene.
Post processing started with a classic filter in Topaz B&W FX. I adjusted color sensitivity sliders, adaptive exposure, regions, contrast, boost black, boost white, details, and protect highlights. A levels adjustment was added in PSE.
