    Here is a picture I took the other day. It was driving past me as I took it. I used PS and gave it an aged look.
    I used a digitial camera with 5.0 mp.

    It does look sort of interesting, I wish it were bigger though. *edit* Much better, thanks.

    It's seems like you have two subjects that are competing for attention in this photo. The scenery with the farm and the sky is one image...and the trucks are something completely different. I think they would each look pretty good but together in this image...it's just not doing it for me.

    The way it's colored reminds me of those old-fashioned prints of old gas stations and general stores in the country. If only the truck being towed was an old, old one. I like the color in the sky and the overall muted coloring.

    I like the look of the colors.

    I agree with big mike on the subject matter.

    My two cents would have to be your horizan line is tilted with the top of the buildings leaning down to the right.

    I think the truck bein towed is plenty old, it's a 1960-1966 Chevrolet.(all same body styles those years)

    This photo to me......tells a story. May not be the real story, but this is what it says to me. This old truck spent it's whole life on the farm. Doin farm work. The farmer gave the truck to his grandson possibly, and he has fixed it up. New spiffy paint job..etc....and now the trucks goin back home to the farm all proud of his new duds (paint job)

    Can't you just hear the old tractors murmur when he rolls up the drive......"man "Old Red" looks good these days, don't he, after his trip to town"

    cute cute photo.

    Haha man... you got all of that from 1 pic?

    I like the pic... I think it works... but I'm with Big Mike in that I think there's a lot going on and some of the ideas fight each other. I think simplifying it could be the difference between a good pic and a great pic. Just my opinion though.

    When I said old, I said old-old, meaning 1950 or earlier, like you'd see in those prints of days gone by. I like your take on the story behind it, though. Gives the pic more meaning.

    :)
