Bilge Pump Control Panel

This pump is on a tug dock along the Missouri River near Frontier Park in St. Charles, Missouri.  As I shot, I had the monochrome below in mind.  However, the fortuitous distribution of red, ocher and cyan makes it work in color.  Processing included the crop in Lightroom, lens and levels adjustment in Photoshop and noise reduction in Nik Define.

Monochrome is courtesy of Nik Silver Efex Pro, using the equivalent of a K2 yellow filter and blue/sepia split tone.

I'm loving this color of green against the rusty background.
