Greetings from the Critique Club! :)

What a cute little truck! I love the contrast in the sizes of vehicles.

There are a couple of things I see here that are causing some problems. First...the photo has a snapshot quality to it. While that's not always a bad thing, the challenge is to make photos that don't really feel like snapshots. Second...the background of your photo has a lot going on in it and it is distracting from your subject.

I was thinking that another way this could be photographed is to have all the trucks lined up with this little guy at the end of the line. You would still be able to show the contrast of sizes and it would make the subject stand out more. It would also show some planning with regard to composition and therefore, less snapshot-ish.

Just a couple of suggestions you may want to think about. I hope they help.

Good luck in future challenges!

Sher :)

bit grainy with too much of a "snapshot" feel to it. The elements in the background are huge and similar in colour and tone to the subject so are very distracting.
