I believe this is a 1950 Dodge Pickup. It's out in the middle of the Utah West Desert, it's something I stop at a few times in the past, and the first place I thought of when I saw this challenge.

Hope you all enjoy

This is very cool! I feel that it would have done better in challenge if you had time to wait until the sun was low in the sky, to get a deep blue sky and orange evening light across the vehicle. I see that it's not bullet proof LOL. Reminds me of Bonnie & Clyde's demise.

Oh my! I hope the bullets came after and not before the demise of this truck. Good capture considering the extremely harsh light. I looks like a place worth returnig to for a picture at sunset or sunrise.

I am a sucker for beat up old cars/trucks....Looks light the lighting is a little bright..might have something to do with the desert environment

Okay, okay, my high score is a little biased, only because I love desert photos and old rusty things. Otherwise, cool shot of it's own merits of course. I really like the plateu's/mtns in the background. It really gives you a sense of the solitude of this trucks surroundings.

Nice shoot, the background is a little bit to busy for me, I prefer to see just the car.

wow - like this - it jumps out at the vierwer and inspires curiousity. Like the colours/exposure too - they don't distract from the subject

Bullet holes or a nasty case of termites. Interesting vehicle and good composition. A bit too bright in the background
