For those wondering, this is some automated laboratory reactor equipment we use at my work.

Editing Steps:
1. Global adjustments in LR2 - Exposure, fill, blacks, clarity.
2. Exported copy as Jpeg
3. Topaz Adjust on base layer- "dramatic" with minor tweaks on sliders to reduce effect
4. Curves, Levels, Vibrance, Selective color, Hue Saturation
5.Silver Efex Pro on base layer
6. Topaz - Denoise, Details, InFocus
7. Crop, resize, sharpen, save for web
8. Minor sharpen, noise reduction post resize.

Thanks for the comments (especially Ken's) during voting. I forgot how hard it can be to take a decent 'close up' shot indoors using a P&S camera.

"Statistical Design of Experiments". I need to wrap my head around that for a bit to figure it out. I'll end up over thinking it and get a head-ache, for sure. I like the picture, it has good clarity and is interesting. I like the machines all lined up - the depth of focus seems to add individuality to the similarities. The B/W adds - 8
