The strong shadow abstracts by Man Ray, Ralph Gibson and Ernst Haas are among my favorites. I stumbled upon this hatch on a rusting steel tug boat dock along the Missouri River. For the color version, I used a custom preset I made for landscapes Nik HDR Efex, then applied my "CSI: Miami" effect in Nik Color Efex Pro.
This monochrome version comes from Nik Silver Efex Pro and a custom preset I made that applies a green filter and sepia/blue split tone.
