||Winner: Wagon Wheel Dawn McDonald
"I put my Kodak DX 4900 on black and white and in Adobe
Photoshop 7 I added a hint of red.
I have an old wagon wheel and my porch and the way the sun was
shining, it looked neat, especially with the paint chipping off
the porch. Looks like it belonged."
|Old Tucson Lantern, Glenn Jenks
Glenn tells us "This was shot at Old Tucson in 2002 on an
outing with friends. The mixture of textures, including the rust
caught my attention."
Glenn used his Canon EOS Elan7E and Canon 35-128mm IS lens to
capture this image onto Fuji Provia 100 and scanned it with his
CanoScan FS4000US adjusting the levels to balance the highlights
|RustyOldCar, Marda Jordan
"I was out looking for Fall foliage when I spotted this old
Marda captured it with her Canon EOS A2 w/Canon 75-300 f5.6 IS
lens onto Kodak Max 400. The image was scanned to CD when the film
|Old Truck, Ken Dickson
"I was out with my (then) local camera club at an old gold
mining town attraction outside Canberra, Australia. The day was
fairly overcast and the shots of the old houses and mills etc we
not generating much excitement. Exploring a bit further we found
the old truck behind one of the houses, it is not part of any
display, just left in the paddock to rust away I guess. Being an
overcast day helped the beautiful deep rich colours of the rust
come out with little distraction. It is one of my early shots but
still one of my favourite ones."
Ken created this image using his Canon EOS 500N & 22-55mm
Canon EF lens set at about 28mm using Kodak 100 print film. It was
scanned on an Acer Scanwit 2720s. Once the image was scanned Ken
did "Some cloning to remove a distracting tree from the roof
area and a bit of burning in on the colours in the grass around
the car. (Less than 10% changes to the image)."
