For fun - old car

I ran across this old car this week and took a couple of bracketed shots hoping it might lend itself to a bit of HDR processing. Then I decided to just try some of the artistic effects that PSP offers with the following as some of the results (sorry for so many).  I was surprised by what some of the effects did based on their names.

Wondering what would you do?

Original image - nominal -1/3EV

HDR - 3 shots, -1/3EV nominal +/- 2/3EV bracket

colored edges-blurry

b&w + contrast

colored chalk (I also tried pencil and charcoal effects, but there were similar but lacking any color)

contours + contrast


glowing edges

polished stone

posterize - 5 levels

rough leather


soft plastic (topography effect was very similar)

solarize @76

CC, improvements, and other ideas welcome!
