Once great, now roadside junk.

The quasi-HDR appearance was done with excessive application of the clarify adjustment in Paint Shop Pro.

Post challenge notes:
I was really curious how this one would do. It placed well enough, but I can see from the votes and comments that this was a shot that some really liked, but did not have broad appeal.

Very nice shot. These old junkers can make for some nice images.

I like this shot a lot. The old Studebaker or Dodge wrecker looks a lot like the one in the kids movie "Cars".

Nice photo but too much PP for me, giving it an almost cartoonlike quality.

It would be nice to see the frame filled to see more details.

Sitting at the edge of the yard, watching the sun set and reflecting on their own last hours. Great choice for perspective and saturation. That you, NikonJeb?
