The title is a pun, and it works.

Pros:
Effective use of B&W to help remove any color distractions that exist on a busy image.


Cons:
DOF - Use a smaller DOF with focus on the OK piece to force our attention to the irony. The small DOF will make things out of focus, which is required with such a busy picture.
Cropping - Should have cropped this just to the left of the man. This would have removed some of the busyness and the vignetting along the corners (notice the image gets darker towards the corners).

I give it a 6.

Might have been ironic if the slogan on the truck had something to do with safety or promised to take special care of your possesions.

I think what makes this photo is the rail road sign hiding in the back. That just adds tremendous impact. (No pun intended.)

Ok, I give out only one 10 per challenge and you have it with this shot. I'm giving you a 9 for now until I see the rest of the entries. Perfect!

PS- Yup, you got my 10 for this challenge.

Ouch! Nice sepia toning, I hope no one was hurt.

Great idea, but there is just too much going on here to know what to focus on. To make a stronger picture, I think you should have composed the shot focusing on 1 element here. Maybe crop out the entire left half of the shot? I don't think sepia toning works on this picture. Stark black and white would have worked better for me. 6

it's rather busy to me. I have trouble focusing on it personally.

Nice subject - good for challenge. How did it look with color - too busy? I wish there were more contrast in the sepia-tone - it is hard to see the line between the truck and sky.

good ironical photo...I like the color and lighting...

For me the image is a little busy. There is a lot to focus on besides the truck. But it does get the point accross. Personally I would liked to have seen the whole truck, and the man be the only subjects in ths shot. I like the idea though.

They moved it alright! Not sure about the coloring, think I might have liked it better in black & white but overall good picture
