I found this abandoned caboose when I was on a photographic scavenger hunt a year or so ago and love its color and texture. From jpg, imported into CS3. Cropped. Flipped left to right. Shadow/Highlight. Hue/Sat. Resized to 1280, Adamus sharpening, resized to 640. Saved for web.

Wow! Great find, pity the puddle isn't a little bigger, but I like the textures on the side

Liked the foreground detail of peeling paint. Would have preferred less detail of the background.

Not in my time, except on the historic railway

Love the Red in this, it makes the subject jump out from the rest of the image. A shame about the puddle though. There is not enough of a reflection for it to add to the image. The vertical crop I think could have been changed to help. Some more sky, and less forground a bit could have helped. Horizontally you are on the rule of thirds, doing it vertically may have also helped.
