About the Image(s)

I participated in a photography workshop at Acadia National Park in 2019. We visited the small town of Bernard and found this wonderfully preserved antique Dodge pickup truck with the license plate advertising the food specialty of Maine.
Technical: 1/20 sec, f/16, ISO640, 70mm

Great minds. . .

Good record of this vehicle and showing evidence of its age.The exposure looks good - interesting low shutter speed, so you have a very steady hand! Have you tried it in mono or would that ruin the effect you want?   Posted: 07/07/2021 08:08:36

I do like the composition you chose with the orange and black front end and the halving of it. Seeing the license plate, the head light and the grill brought me into the image. A minor concern was the near merge with the outside mirror.   Posted: 07/07/2021 08:35:41

I like the composition and color contrast. I find the green background distracting, both its sharpness and brightness. Also wish that the window hadn't been clipped. I took a shot at editing in Photoshop - mostly to blur the background and darken but I also cropped just below the window - which cut the mirror in half. Since the mirror isn't very prominent, and didn't stand out from the darkened background, I just eliminated it.   Posted: 07/12/2021 14:36:32

Good suggestions Weldon. I don't like losing the mirror.   Posted: 07/12/2021 19:31:49

I love Lobstah! Considering going to Maine in a couple of weeks if we dry out around here. Right now 3rd wettest July since 1915 and still have half the month to go! I like the original. I like the change by Sheldon to the background but would of liked to keep the mirror.   Posted: 07/14/2021 19:12:11

I like the fact that you have selected a small portion of the truck, enough to tell us what it is. then we have the licence plate that adds to the story.   Posted: 07/16/2021 05:25:22

What I have learned from this photo is that a small image can tell a lot! It's very inspiring!- Marisa   Posted: 07/26/2021 10:30:23
