For this picture I just started to p;ay with my Color DJ filter to find interesting color combinations. One of them with pale blue flowers and rusty colored woods got an interesting grungy look that was screaming to be intensified. I used the Grunge filter for that. And then Derelict filter applied twice - once with decreased opacity and a mask protecting the flowers from being affected too much. And the second time with 100% opacity and the mask revealing only some cracks on a certain places. Finishing touch - darkened edges with the Vignette filter and some minor color, brightness and contrast tuning.
