I got chased after for being on what I didn't realize yet was private property. The day was bright so I couldn't really see what was on the LCD to see if I got the picture I wanted.

Upped the contrast to 40 or so to give it more of an aged look, and to get the blacks blacker.

Greetings from the Critique Club :)

Hi Mark...

Your photo definitely shows how time catches up with everything eventually :) I like 'rustic' and rural type images like this one quite a bit.

The contrast bump you made to the image seems to work well, but, in my humble opinion, I think the color is a bit strong. When I set out to achieve a feeling of old, I generally choose black and white or a sepia toned image to enhance that feeling. I'm not sure what the result of that would be on this particular image because of the red paint on the truck... Red sometimes gives a bland grey when converted.

Your composition is excellent... the hanging tag really sets this shot off and makes it quite strong...

Keep up the great work :)

Nice approach to the challenge! Feeling of time and aging is definitely conveyed by the rusting vehicle and mangled license plate. Quite nicely done!

Good composition, it emphasizes the idea very well

Nice image. I like the idea you chose to use. The rustiness of the tag and how it is falling off, really portrays time well. Good job.

This is a great shot. My only 2 cents addition to this would be to crop the top down just above the tail light. I think the boost in color is a good addition to this, but the composition has so much red in it, it seems to take my eyes away from the more interesting areas of the artwork. so... I'm only giving you a 9-3/4 ... rounded to the nearest number.... = 10 nice work.

Meets the challenge exceptionally well. Images with a dominant primary color always appeal to me.
