    May I suggest a tighter crop (leaving the words on the top right corner), and also some more contrast (to bring up the texture of the wood)?

    Does this work a bit better? Or is there too much contrast? I did 2 more curves layers, both slight, but that on top of the previous edits on top of the crop added quite a bit of noise.

    Much improved (in my opinion, at least). All the "action" in the wood is happening on the bottom left quarter, so the new crop really brings that out. Also, it is now easier to see the imperfection of the font (the two letters "S" are different, and the second one looks weird!). But I think it's the texture being rescued from obscurity what breathes new life to this image.

    Just my two cents, of course.

    I like the cropped version. Nice work Victoria!
