Very fine composition. Just as it is. (Some want more grain, some less, that's the way dpc is).

Thanks for the comments! To answer some of them:
* I couldn't get the fire under the kettle, there was no way to paint the stove in black! LOL
* I didn't add the noise, in fact, I reduced it as much as I could. As it was still noisy, and the kettle was rather old, that's when I thought I could give this an old look with Sepia, and that lead to the title.

Visions like this could lead to steam engines, industrial revolutions . . .
needs the fire, or something for visual heat...

Nice kettle and steam shot. I am sure you have added grain to give the old looks. The details on the kettle is very good. Good composition.
