I'm pretty sure my grandpa has a picture of this same truck... how neat! I think that a different POV and a different composition might help make this photo more interesting. I personally don't really like how the car is cut off... and the shadow that's falling across the lower half of the photo is also bothering me. But it certainly is a very interesting subject!

For those who asked about the car, it is one of the Cadillac's located at Cadillac Ranch in Amarillo, TX.

Whoa! Quicksand? I'm really curious about the story behind this picture. The kid's face is a little dark, but otherwise good picture.

This subject is really interesting, and could result in a powerful image. To try to squeeze a "candid" out of it is a disservice. 4 sjgleah

Seems a little light on the challenge aspect, but a very nice shot. The little boy seems a bit overly shadowed. Nice title. Extra viewing has lowered my overall impression. 8 Swash

Cool find and the composition is great. Focus on the boy could be sharper. 7 ~indigo997
