Rust and beer/bait signs -- how can you go wrong. I like the colors and all the texture in the car. The image is however very busy and the eye just wanders all over the place without really having something to stop on. For a camera phone and this scene, I think you get what you get. With your DSLR it may have been worth zooming in on the front left of the car with a partial defocus of the Beer sign in the background. You could experiment with all the unique viewpoints to change it from a standard framed shot to something out of the ordinary.

Lots of good stuff in this image, the old car with the flat tire, the garbage around it, the awesome worn sign - all this to contrast the pretty sky and bright colors. I just wonder about the angle you chose...the edge of the object on the far left is a bit of distraction and the back of the car seems a bit crowded. A step or two to your left may have allowed you a bit more 'standard' composition with the car more centered while still allowing the entire sign to stay 'in play'.

And dang! it is amazing how good shots are with camera phones!
