This image is from a workshop I recently ran in Central Victoria. The object pictured formed part of a water supply system. Lying in deep shade the teeth, texture and vivid rust color of the machinery would have photographed quite flat.
The solution was two-fold. The first step was to light the machinery with flash to enhance contrast and add a sense of drama to the image. After initial processing in Adobe Lightroom 2 Adobe Photoshop CS4 was employed to provide a heightened sense of drama by pushing up local contrast and color saturation.
