Last chance gas? nice pic. I wonder what it would look like with a wider angle lens and getting a little closer...i.e distort perspective.

Focus seems to be a touch more on the building than the car, but that is a minor nitpick. I like this. Gives off an impression of desolation and abandonment.

Some of the focus issue I mentioned could be the result of compression artifacts. With a 109k file size, you had some more overhead to use less compression and get a little more clarity out of it.

Too much going on in the background.
Almost pulls the attention away from the car.

This setting is very apropos, I love the worn out look of everything except the bright sky - nice contrast.

There are so many close cropped pictures, it's refreshing to see a scene like this, tons of character!
