Left to rust

This old fashioned horse-drawn mower was rusting in the field. My infrared camera captured it in high contrast monochrome, and Nik Silver Effects was used to process it, including the border effect.

Great shot. We had an old mower like that. Was too old and rusty to use, but we kids played on it. I can still feel the coolness of the metal seat. Love this shot for the memories it evokes.

Fabulous! A fabulous scene of the old mower and very atmospheric in monochrome.

A fine shot of this old classic mower. I like the processing and the border fits the picture very well.

I like the processing, it suits the time in which the equipment was still in use very well.
