Wishing I had a much better camera!
Shot in sepia effect mode at camera's maximum 640x480 mode. In PaintShop, I only rotated, cropped, and bumped the Gamma. One step of 'sharpen'.

Beautiful shot. I wish that it had more depth of field. The pump blends in with the building in the background. More contrast may help. The angle of the shot gives it a lot of interest. Nice potential for really great shadows to make the subject pop out of the picture.
A little tweaking would definitely make this a great postcard or greeting card.

Nice idea, nice title. I'd love to go back to the day before a buck was only a half gallon! :-) Good choice for this challenge...

This is a great shot, certainly nostalgic. Taking your focal point off-center a little bit might have added a even more interest to the photo. Nice sepia and I like the fact that there are no clouds in the sky to detract from the pumps. Nicely done.

Excellent, composition, subject and use of sepia makes it so authentic looking.

Nice photo, personally I would have cropped a little bit more of the concrete away, I like the sepia tones also.

Would have liked it better in color, but title makes the picture stand out.

Good idea for the challenge. I think the shot would be even better if the subject (gas pumps) were mooved to either of the side thirds of the frame.

Very well composed, nice content.

The photograph is lacking in contrast.

Really meets the challenge well. I think if you'd moved a bit to the right and made the sign more visible it would have been a better shot.
