I don't know why I like severe vignettes so much; they're just an affectation when done to this extent, and I know it.
But I actually like the brutality; the uncompromising effect created. In this photograph I was interested in using the preposterously excessive lower edge vignette to mirror the shapes and weights of the background hills. Making the truck (bakkie) become a part of or an echo of the landscape. I did a horse like that once too, though with a less extravagant vignette.

If I had voted in the challenge you might have gotten to 5.5. Not that matters at all. It's a beautiful photograph. The tight crop on the truck creates a nice foreground layer. I don't necessarily dislike the heavy vignette but I'd be interested in seeing the natural image.

Interesting composition of shapes and patterns here. I like it; sometimes a photo comes together and becomes much more than the sum of its parts.

I experienced love at first sight with this photograph and refuse to find the reasons, at least for a while. 10
