Oh I would have loved this if it were cropped a little tighter to show me a closer view of the dinner.

very nice. It's too bad you couldn't have gotten the shot without the newer cars.

too bad all the vehicles aren't vintage...might have been more effective with the left portion cropped to the end of the truck..nice tones, and overall idea

Nice shot. That diner looks so familiar, but there are probably hundreds that look like that.

Nice nostalgic image...I love the stainless steel diners...this image reminds of the old poscards you can still find of these diners from the '50's...the perspective and angle really harkens back to those postcards...absolutely one of my favorites of the challenge.
