The keen title observer may recognize this as a tribute to an all time great TV show: M*A*S*H. I grew up watching Hawkeye and the gang with my grandpa, and continued on well after he passed away. The wit is timeless, and the message of anti-war is as string as ever.

This old military ambulance lives at a shady looking auto shop in Madison. I stopped once before to get a photo, but never really concentrated on the details. So for this challenge I returned to this vehicle and grabbed some photos of the various rusted details. This shot, one of the first of the shoot, turned out to be my favorite.

Post Processing:
* Topaz Adjust 5
* Increase definition
* Increase saturation and vibrancy
* Export as TIFF
* Resize
* Sharpen Edges
* Save as JPEG

Of not in the post processing is that Topaz Adjust 5 did such a nice job, outside edits were extremely small tweaks. That was rarely the case for Topaz Adjust 4.
