Wow! this is my best score ever! Thanks everyone for the great comments. My first Top 10! What makes this really sweet is that it was a member's challenge, - so this pic is competing with images from great minds/artists/technicians/photographers all rolled into one.

Ha Graphicfunk - I knew when I saw my score there would be a congratulatory comment by you first off. Thanks for taking the time!

this image rocks as it looks like the truck is coming out of the ground, would be fun to fool around with some motion blur, well done.

Very nice. I would have rated it higher except the toning is overdone.

You have made a discarded unattractive automobile look like a piece of art. Great work.

Nice photo, the sepia adds nicely to the overall effect. The light seems a bit strong. 8.

I like this image..the use of sepia, the truck covered with vines, the remnants of a fence combine beautifully...also the sunlight on vehicle and shadows on ground are good.

Nice job on your post process. I like the sepia and the 'dead end' is clearly portrayed in this photo. Good job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I love this. I love the tones and the nostalgia. Composition is great. The post on the right and the truck up against the left edge gives an extra feeling of a dead end. Well done 9

Wonderful use of sepia. The composition is well done and the lighting is excellent. 8

I couldn't imagine a more nostalgic photo than an old truck, ocvered in weeds and vines done in an antique filter. The lighting is spot on and I love the textural variations between the old post, the leaves and brush and the truck. AWESOME 9

Great shot - perfect editing.

The sharp focus, deep DoF and noise-free presentation contrasts too much with the intended vintage look. I like the subject, but the post-processing gives the image an almost surreal feel which doesn't really work for this challenge.
