On our recent Vermont trip, we ate at a wonderful restaurant converted from a Victorian-era train station. And outside was a prime piece of local color: an old caboose resting on a rail fragment, possibly a remnant of the very line that ran past the depot in the old days.
And since an aged machine calls out for a sense of its own history, I applied a few Topaz filters in post-processing to bring the viewer back in time.
Topaz Adjust is probably the filter I make the most use of outside of Photoshop’s standard effects. If you’re interested in checking it out for yourself, click the link in the sidebar to find out more.
