These are the bricks that are behind our woodburner in the lounge. I had a number of ideas for this challenge but none of the results did much for me. This has some technical merit (IMO) and should be a solid 5.5 if not a little better.

Editing Steps:
Convert from RAW
Neat Image
Slight "S" Curve
Hue +9
Brightness +12
Contrast +17
Flatten & Resize
Add Border
Save for web

So much for a solid 5.5, I was lucky to get into the 5's!

Pink Floyd perhaps? I think the black border is just a little too strong if you are going to have white as well.
