This '33-'34 Ford V8 truck has been being procrastinated about for waaaaaaay too many years.

My beginning venture into the world of RAW and I like it.Converted to .jpg, sharpened, cropped a little, desaturated a little, lightened a little......I liked the way it came out pretty much.

Post-Challenge: OMIGAWD!!!!!!

Personal best, first Top 50.....I'm not going to go down the list of how many goals I just went screaming by!

Thanks to 31.gif cutlassdude70 for teaching me how to be a much better photographer than I was when I got here. ALL of my improvement is his fault.

GO TEAM SUCK!!!

1/16: I am just overwhelmed at the lovely comments and good wishes!

Thank you all so much!

Another example of your great eye and good photography with this image of this old car/truck. I love your processing as it definately gives it is raw edge, that I like.....

Wow that looks like a potential Barrett-Jackson's truck. Congratulations on second or red ribbon.. This turned out really good with the colors, I like the way the truck stands out from everything else.

great shot, you can nearly smell the truck and the rusting is almost there to touch, well done on the Ribbon. as before the only thing lacking from yourself is the "Suck" factor. ;-)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2007 01:22:17 PM
Wow! Congratulations on your well-deserved ribbon! I gave this a ten -- glad to see it was yours.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/15/2007 05:57:56 PM
Dude, nice shot, two thumbs up. Only one problem, you seam to be severely lacking in “suck”, and you need to work on that, just joking, congrats on your first ribbon.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This was one of my favorites in the challenge, just for the grubby lusciousness of it. Kinda matches my boat, doesn't it? When you've fixed it up and I've patched the boat, we'll use it for a tow vehicle :-) Congrats on ribbon!

Big congrats, Jeb!

Very nice shot Jeb. I remember commenting on this shot. Hey, If I knew that all I had to do was write a poem and a sucker would ribbon, I'd have done it a long time ago. Good job.

Congrats, Jeb, wonderful image that I somehow have missed in the challenge (see, I was wrong with my assumption). Had surely gotten another ten from me!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/15/2007 02:11:23 AM
This was beautifully done and the red was well deserved. Congratulations.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/15/2007 02:05:08 AM
Nice job! 2nd place, excellent :) When I saw this shot I thought for sure it was tone mapped or HDR, but no, it's just a straight shot from RAW, that makes it even better in my book. The quality is superb.

Congrats Jeb,
Great job on this competition. You got one of my highest scores in this category, glad to see you got highest scores from a buncha people!

Great pic of a 30's Ford. My grandfather had a 32 that he called "Leapin' Lena" that he bought new. I still remember when he gave it to my brother. We found out right away that it would do 85 mph by the speedometer.
Good job with the image. The moss growing on it is good for color in the image, and for the metal. The metal will not rust much where the moss is on it.
Congrats on the ribbon, and thank you for jogging my memory.

I bet you have a ribbon with this one
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/14/2007 10:47:50 AM
This is a great photo well processed, but seems to me the photo itself should have some intrinic meaning that relates to the topic. In yours, and many others, people have simply tried to pull an unrelated shot in by use of a title?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/14/2007 09:48:26 AM
Cool truck!! Your angle is wonderful - Nicely done!

Nice photo. Fits the challenge well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/12/2007 01:39:35 PM
Heh! Title makes the shot (for the challenge) - composition, color and editing make it a nice shot on it's own.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/12/2007 08:56:14 AM
This is a relly nice shot. I love the colors in the truck and the ground. The only thing that looks out of place is the tires and rims. They look too new for the truck. Excellent job though. 7

nice truck and great shot, love the muted colors.

Truck does have some potential...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/11/2007 12:04:18 PM
This is a beautiful photo, and would be very appealing outside of this challenge as well. It's a tad shoehorned in, but it works for me. 9.

Looks you've replaced the tyres - it's a start!

overprocessed. the composition is too tight.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/10/2007 10:16:45 AM
I might know where you can get another just like this :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/10/2007 08:59:43 AM
Good combination of colours and toning. 7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/10/2007 06:52:15 AM
Very straightforward image - the obvious standing-up point of view, framing simply to include the edges of the truck, colour just accurate. This then, depends for its impact only on the subject, rather than the photographers relation to it, and that won't be enough to engage people's attention.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/10/2007 05:13:21 AM
LOL! If you find someone to get that one running I let me know! :)

Neat image!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/09/2007 12:48:03 AM
Wonderful coppery and green colors, and nice positioning within frame. Background is good, too...everything adds well to the overall quality with no extra clutter. Frame works. Like this one a lot. 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/08/2007 05:47:09 PM
Breathtaking. I was going to attempt a very similar shot of an old truck like this in some overgrown weeds, but I don't think it would have come out nearly this striking. I will be sorely disappointed if this one doesn't ribbon. 10 from me.

The thing that jumps out to me about this photo is the appearance of nearly new tires...
