Excellent conversion - likey
Les Auld: Glad you like it Louis.
great shot man, not sure about the processing though. I think it is a strong enough subject to live without the extra stuff.
Les Auld: In this case Paul you could be right but then I do like a bit of distressing from time to time, thanks for the comment.
