* Howdy for the Critique Club *

For me this photo brought up memories for me. For when I was a kid and my dad use to take me place where old trucks and cars were. I can't believe how good of shape this baby is in. If that was in Kansas it would be full of bullet holes lol.

Ok when I first open this I thought wow nice. I think your camera angle is good. Really showing those great lines in the grill. Something I think could be changed, as you said you walk by it when walking your dogs, is asking the owner about it. Maybe seeing if you could remove the small trees growing threw the bumper area, but I do like the grass growing over the area. The trees for me is a eye sore I keep wondering back to them.

Do like your processing on this really give old feel to it not to warm and not to cool.I think you could have tweaked it bit more with some curves adjustments to darken the sky a bit and also the rusty areas on the truck. This would have given a bit more contrast.

Over all you have a wonderful photo and keep up the great work, if you have any question feel free to PM me.

Have a great day, Mark Thomas Kelsay

Well done - you have at least found a sense of the bizarre in this subject; ther's almost an animal grimace in that radiator venting - and the tonality aids that very well. Perhaps slightly too tightly cropped for really comfortable viewing - always beware the edges of frame if you haven't the motion, the relationships to pull the eye back in.

I like the grinning 'teeth' formed by the grille; gives it a nice rakish air, like a skull! There is no apostrophe (sorry; I'm uncontrollably anal about apostrophes). 7.

I love this one. It's so clean. The way its composed, it truly looks like art! I can just imagine this hanging matted and framed in a car lover's office or something! This is really one of my favorites out of the 15% I've voted so far!

Great angle and very interesting subject. It feels like it could benefit from a tweak in curves or some burning to increase the tonal range though. Nicely framed and good shot anyhow.

Just fantastic, I took a similar composition photo of an old truck but this just makes it look plain! 10 from me and a fav.!

Way cool! I like this just as it is. I would love to see version #2 with a little grit and rust. Still a strong 10.
