Rear view of a classic pickup truck. I metered the natural reflecting light in this enclosed area and used a Sigma 15-30 lens to shoot the image..

Hi Jeff, Thank you. The 15-30 is definatly my favorite lens! Theres nothing like an ultra wide lens and the possibilities for creative imagery is endless. #230599

Donna R. Moratelli October 13, 2003

Hi everyone, Thanks for all of the comments on this image.

Hi Murry, NO,no PS at all. I unfortunatly know nothing about doing things like that. What you see through the back window ad windsheild is what was there. Thanks for the comments. #231012

Terry R. Hatfield October 13, 2003

Nice Shot Donna!! Guess You Wouldnt Want To haul Anything In The Bed! #231018

Donna R. Moratelli October 13, 2003

Heck no Terry! The man that built this truck bed has a hubcap buisness but I think that he has other ideas for this baby besides hubcaps. It's a classic truck cab. . I was actually afraid that I would scratch the bed with my tripod so I set down and old towel just in case.Thanks for the comment.. #231029
