don't particularly care for the grey border. And not sure about the composition. nice toning, and interesting take on the mundane.

Very nice shot but I would like to see the sky without the sepia toning. I also like the little bit of red.

Love what you did with the processing (and the border compliments that nicely).

avg vote, i like the tone and teh feel of the picture. The horizon is a little blown along with tree (middle, far right). The building isn't appealing though, just looks like walls.. looking for something to set the era more.

I'm sure I've seen this place in many locations. The duotone is interestingly effective. Did you try it in the other half, with a gray sky?

I'd like this more with a little less foreground asphalt.

what a cool old abandoned truck stop ... I'll bet you've got some great shots from this location ... normally I'm not a huge fan of colored borders, but this time it works well ... nice job

interesting scenery. nice color conversion. composition is too centered, might have been better if you had shot from a lower viewpoint to include more of the road. had used a white border to make the image "pop" some more

I like the use of the b/w and sepia sky. It works well for this subject.

Do not like that color sky - perhaps a different color would work better - 7
