Here, a tired old truck rests peacefully among the brush in a pocket of a Canadian resort village.

Nice composition, but the post-processing seems a little excessive to me. I think both the saturation and contrast could stand to be dialled down somewhat, and a levels/curves adjustment to even out the exposure might work too.

Wicked shott TT. I really like it - care to divulge?

My only critique would be the tree - I find it distracting. If you really want to test your PP (post -processing) skills maybe see how the shot looks if you clone out the tree.

Hope that helps,

I agree with both. The tree visually splits the image and therefore needs to go and as TiredIron mentioned, contrast needs to be reduced, exposure heightened a bit and the post work toned down a little. :)

Hey guys - thanks so much for input. I had a crazy busy weekend. Busy-ness follows this week so I won't have a chance to do much more than peek at the forum here and there, maybe a comment or two as well... I want to get busy with the recommended retouches, but it will come in bits and pieces.
Again, thank you so much for taking time to cc!!!
