K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge – Metal


As I was wandering around Kingston on the weekend, looking for metal, (because that’s the theme of this week’s Cosmic Photo Challenge) I came across a gate with some nasty looking needles. It’s like they put them in there just to make a point… so to speak.

The first is close to the original. I washed out a bit of the colour to age it a little:


But then I thought what the hell. I just got a new phone today and the camera came with a few editing goodies, so why not make it look like I took the photo when the place was built?


What do you think?

  1. It’s always interesting to see what the different settings make a picture look like.


  2. 👍👍


  3. Nicely vintage, Linda. I’m certain about that (I’m not sitting on the fence)


  4. I think you have done a fine job editing the picture. It captures the true horror of those sword/spike things in a picture. No words needed. Creepy!


  5. The first is a walk around the neighborhood. The second is looking through my grandmother’s photo album. 🙂 Nicely done, Linda!

  6. Excellent work, Linda. Hard to choose between the original and the rework. Both look pretty good to me. Thanks for joining the challenge.


  7. Both are good – they have very different feelings,


Don't hesitate - jump right in!
