    This pickup has been in my family since 1952 and my grandfather gave it to me when I was 8. We've finally gotten around to restoring it and taking some snaps. Let me know which is your favorite!

    Nice, classic pickup!

    my fav is no.4, if you did it in HDR, you would got the right exposure for the background ( the sky )

    Cool pickup, #2 is my favourite, really diggin the angle, makes it look like a monster that wants to kill me. Shame about the overexposed sky though.

    #1.

    Old pickup and an old bridge go together nicely. Fewer reflections on the metal and windshield. Now, get rid of the light pole.

    Glad everyone likes the subject! It was a labor of love and mucho dinero for sure! Here's the shot with a little more PP done. I'm tweaking the first and will post it soon. Thanks again for all the comments.

    I hope you don't mind but I removed the light pole from the first picture like a couple people suggested. I was bored and wanted to give it a try. Hope you like it. Beautiful truck by the way! I'm a Ford man too!

    Much nicer without the light pole. And if you're still bored, go ahead and get rid of the building on the left:lol:

    Since the consensus seems to be pic #1, I did more pp on this one too, cloned out the light pole, added some contrast and upped the color hues to make things pop.

    The building in the background was quite distracting, as was the bright orange road sign. So, I cloned them both out in this picture. I also created a duplicate layer and added some gaussian blur to the background and set the opacity to 80%. Below is the result and let me know what you think.

    I dont like the blur edit but somehow you've managed to get a sort of tilt shift miniature effect. Unless you're trying to go for that I'd say start again, but cool either way.
