Peeling Paint Study #2

Maybe it is just because I'm getting older and trying to make the best of personal decay, but peeling paint and rust evoke a character and dignity that really fascinate me.  This is a patch girder from the Chain of Rocks bridge in deep shadow.  Lighting is from two mylar reflectors, one to spotlight surface, the other to put some cross light in the groove.  Nikon D700, ISO 200, 105mm f/2.8 Micro-Nikkor, f/16 @ 1/15s, Cokin circular polarizer, imported into Lightroom 2 using the Nikon Camera Neutral profile.
