Photo Fun

We took a step back in time this weekend and rode a steam train in the foothills of Mt. Rainier.  It was a great afternoon, one we won't forget. Love those days! While waiting for our return train I snapped this classic photo... it's destined for our poor lonely white bare walls! So help me please! Any photo editing tips, any favorite tricks, tutorials?!
This is what I have so far, using the Photo Grunge Effect Tutorial


Better? Too 'edited'? Favorite?

Too edited... pull it back a little bit. Or, I'd go for a softer, more classic feel. Go to "Image" "Adjustment" "Hue/Saturation" (or do a new layer adjustment if you know how to do that - make sure you save the original somewhere). Slide the saturation slider to the left a little bit until you like it.

Then I'd add a little bit of a dark gradient around the edges by adding a new levels adjustment layer that's darker just on the corners. Do you know how to do that? If not, let me know and I'll walk you through it.
