(Olympus E-3, 14-54mm at 54mm (2x crop factor), ISO 200, exposure 1/4 sec @ f/3.5)
This image was taken at The Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan. This museum has a great collection of power generators and heavy machinery (among other things). This particular shot it is a close-up of one of the power generators on display. What caught my eye was the various layers of metal and the way they were put together. I particularly like the use of the dovetails on one of the pieces.
The source image was in color, and then converted to black & white. I added a slight platinum tone which I think goes well with the metal surfaces. Other than that, there was minimal processing done to this image.
Comments and feedback welcome.
