The old water tower

This old water tower rises above the tiny town of Gruene, TX and is an enduring symbol of the community.  The day I took this shot was gray and overcast, but no dramatic clouds or anything - basically it was colorless.  I went ahead and took the shot, though a silvery-gray water tower did not exactly pop off the screen against a silvery-gray sky.  Anyways, once I messed with it a little and added some sepia tones, I thought it stood out rather nicely, plus it gives it that old-fashioned look and feel which is spot-on for this place.
