The Art of a Train Engine :: HDR

Crap Challenge #1

 

Good day & how is everyone here? I've been really flat out at work for the past week & ended up too tired for flickr.. hope life's being good for all of u so far! :) Its good to be back & here i'm posting a crap shot. I have given myself a challenge to see if i can make any crappy things look good. During my tassie trip, I went on a mission in search for some dirty, rusty crap stuff along the way. Now I present my own Crap Challenge (CC) #1 shot! :D I know the compo for this is not that great but really the best i can do as its very cramp & i've no space to shift around. Now your turn to judge - is this CRAP or WRAP?

 

View SUPER LARGE On Black to lick some dirt! :P
