    I really like this image, but I have some questions, and want your opinions.

    1) Should I straighten the truck? It sat there at an angle, but I don't think there is anything else in the shot to show that. So in this instance, is it better to correct it, or leave it be?

    2) The seam on the hood. I think it's a line too close to the edge. Is it distracting? Would cropping it out be an improvement?

    3)Does the image seam too soft?

    Thanks for your thoughts.

    To straighten or not to straighten -- I'd say don't bother, its an old truck obviously not used so it adds to the image, Imo.

    The focus looks fine to me.

    The hood be honest, I'm not sure I would even have noticed it had you not brought it to my attention. That said, did you try to clone it out as a comparison? Or crop the shot right on the seam?

    Nice shot BTW, I love photos like this. I'm never lucky enough however to find any cool neglected old trucks. ;)
