Colonial Eagle Gasoline Sign

Somewhere near Fayetteville, NC stands this old sign. The longer you look at it, the more words and numbers you end up noticing!

An old Colonial sign stands rusted along side a country road. Not So SAHM

Old Colonial Sign – ProjectEdit365 – 19 Oct

The original was crooked and flat (too bright outside!) and had telephone wires protruding from the back of it. I cropped to straighten and then cloned out all wires (not perfectly though). I decreased the saturation and the highlights of the whole picture and added a small vignette. I created an adjustment brush to enhance the sign itself. In the end I think I added a preset on top of everything and then added grain. It took so much to figure out how to get the picture to look the way I wanted it to (without immediately going to the presets). Here’s the original:
