These gears are part of an educational exhibit outside the McDonnell Planetarium. I like the shapes, but the original shot is really dull. Nik HDR Efex helped lift some texture and tonality using a custom preset I call Dark Vintage.
The monochrome comes from Silver Efex Pro using a high structure, split tone effect.
