Taken at a Garbage Transfer Station where they deliver the garbage from trucks to be taken to landfill in a rural area. There are tons of trash here. I kind of had to talk my way in here as they usually don't have folks come in to take photos I guess!!

I don't normally let the title influence my vote, but this title really carried this shot from being just an image of a garbage truck being emptied to a funny and thought-provoking image of the time we live in. We fill ourselves and our lives with JUNK. Nice. 8, just-married

This is nice, but I think that the harsh glare on the side of the truck is pretty distracting. This is a funny photo accompanied by the title, but without the title, it's not funny at all. I like the angle and framing/cropping. I guess my only nitpick is the glare on the side of the truck. Overall a nice shot though. Good luck in the challenge. ~Hbunch7187~

The picture is nice, but the title could have been: "Pig's Paradise"

nice clarity on this pic... maybe a polarizer to get rid of some of the glare off the side of the truck may of helped.. overall an 8

Liked the title, loads of trash there. Fluffy

a shorter exposure might have been nice to help with the sky, but you'd probably lose some of the nice motion on the trash!
10/08/2002 08:29:00 PM
Nice, in a disgusting kind of way! I like the motion here.

Very nice photo. I like the motion blur on all the garbage falling out, but the blownout highligh on the left stops this being a 10.

One of the nicer shots of the week, in my opinion. I like the motion that you captured as the trash made it's descent. The only complaint that I could make would be the reflection/glare on the side of the truck and at the opening at the top left... but hey, what can you do? :) - 8 - JB

nice timing and good composition.
10/07/2002 04:53:00 PM
I think this is definitely the best 'lots of trash' shot I have seen this week :) The exposure is a little hot in places, but overall, a great shot :) = 10 - setzler

This is one cool pic. I really like how it blurs in the middle of the heap. Great colors.
10/07/2002 11:41:00 AM
Was it smelly ?
10/07/2002 11:26:00 AM
great shot
10/07/2002 08:35:00 AM
This is great. I like how some of the garbage falling out is blurred. A little too much reflection off the side of the truck.
10/07/2002 05:25:00 AM
TOP SHOT....10

GREAT photo !!!! Shiiizzzam

the lighting on the left and movement of the trash is what keeps this from being a good picture--6bobgaither
