    Amazing Capture! The color draws you in! The blue sky in the background in gorgeous and the shadow the mirror makes on the truck is wonderful!

Hi Amanda,
Thanks for the comments - glad that you like this image and my other pics of old trucks and farm equipment! As you probably know, I live in the country and really enjoy getting out and giving my shooting eye regular workouts!

Notes on the making of this photo: For this image, I zeroed in tight on one of my favorite abandoned trucks. I chose a wide-angle lens and a reeeeeally close camera position - down low (on my knees) and within an arm's length of the truck. The camera position - aided by a tripod - gave me a nice perspective on things. Plus, as Kristy pointed out earlier, the low camera angle also let me set the truck against the sky ... in order to take adantage of the warm-vs.-cool color contrast. And, as Kristy noted, the low-on-the-horizon sun cast a nice shadow that created a strong diagonal line.
