I used the freebie edge from Snickerdoodles, a free texture by skeletalmess over the photo, then added a new layer of "dark scratches" I have had this since 2006, so don't know where from - sorry. Then added shadows, and a few more layer styles also the paper and tape and added styles to them too. This is quite a departure for me as I don't usually like to "mess things up" too much, but all in all I am quite pleased at what can be achieved with PS. I also used a paper torn brush here there are 38 shapes.
Here are a few more photos taken on the same day a few weeks ago.

|This "Apple" has been at The Mumbles since I was a child, a VERY long time ago. Although it had been damaged in winter storms in recent years, it it now as good as ever.|
