Wanted to capture the backside of this rusty old truck. Lighting was obviously harsh...early evening light to work with. It was tucked away in someone's carport...so the wooden beams were in my way. I tilted to get rid of them as much as possible.
I really like my end result. I ended up liking the contrast from the blown out sky.

Technicals: Two things hurt it slightly. The sharpness is just a bit soft. That's from your lens. Also the brightly lit grass hurts. Picking another time of day may have been better. Otherwise I like the composition and the thumb caught my eye in voting.

The feel: I like the feel. A good choice of subject. The tilted composition also adds to the "broken down" feel.

The game: I can clearly tell this is at the top of my comment range (4.5-5.5). The background probably got you in the end along with the softness.

Like the tones. You should try and reshoot this when the lighting is not so harsh.

Nice job. Shadows are perfect. Tilted poles add to the effect.

I really like this, only thing I can suggest is I wish there was more detail in the upper left background..not so blown.

I really like the crop on this, and the fact that it is just a little tilted adds to the "atmosphere" or mood of the shot.
