I had made up my mind that whatever I shot for 'Grey' would be grey and not a monochrome version of something colourful. This is the one I like the most.

Square crop
Smart Sharpen*
Contrast boost
Exposure boost
Highlight recovery
Cloned errant fibre
Partial desaturation of green, red and magenta

I love this. Too many are black and white and to me, this challenge called for a color shot of grey, and you did it well. Beautiful DOF.
