Door

Everyone's submission usually starts off with an interesting shot. Here's one that's just so-so. Can anything be done with it?

e.b. -- that's not a "so-so" shot! It already has rich color, clarity, nice composition... This should be fun for some of us.

I'll check back later after I've had time to rev up PShop and work with it a bit.

As soon as I saw this one I thought anisotropic diffuse! Darkened with the sketchy action as a multiply layer, flattened and ran the anisotropic. Adjusted with curves. With some images, this effect is just fantastic. I really like what it did with the lines on this one.
