News: My husband found out what this wreck was today. It is an armored car full of money! That's why so many men were around it and why they were looking at things so carefully. No one was hurt. It explains the wierd seat in the back with the little cage around it.

Editing: Crop, levels, resize, unsharp mask, save for web.

This accident was along the road near Saguache, Colorado. My husband and I were driving to Salida for dinner when we saw this - still haven't figured out what sort of truck it was and what was in it. There seem to be a lot of guys looking at the wreck - don't know why. I would have liked to take some more pictures but another policeman on the road told us to move along.

Nice shot, the colors are great and the contrast and post processing are both well done.

Nice color and contrast. I think a different angle of observation would have improved this image. Maybe get closer to your subject and make it more evident what the men are doing, and by showing more of the bent frame of the truck's cab.

Nice photojournalistic photograph. I believe its cropped to tight and the harsh shadows take away from the details. With that said good capture and and focus.
