While many of my recent favourites have been shots of the kids (this one, for example) this is probably my favourite non-human shot that I've posted in ages. And in case you're wondering, it's an old fire extinguisher that Theis and I came across at the weekend.

In this instance, the post-processing is quite extreme – insofar as the original looks a bit different – but I think it suits this object quite well. As always though, do let me know what you think.

The original is here:

And finally, while I used a variety of techniques to post-process this shot, the tutorial that is probably the most relevant is my Toning colour images one.
