Hello Gus,
nie the view of the scene with the skeleton of the abandon truck to be hidden behind the plants and under the tree.I like the good light and colour management as the clarity of the scene.


Hi, Gus,
Your photo reminds me my childhood, we loved to play in the old cars.)) Very interesting short photostory, good colours management, well done.

Hello Gus,

Hi Gus,
Finally I can enjoy your shots now:)
This one can be called artwork for sure - with the shadows heavily lifted and unsharp mask generously applied it looks like a graphics:)
Stunning effect, it suits here so well. I think this oldie has deserved a great picture showing his last days in the best light.
My compliments and best wishes

Hi Gus,
Out of service, or, forgotten....Excellent old rusty car remains detail photo in very good light. Well optimized tight crop.

Hi Gus
Intriguing close shot, fully fit for the hungry smelter but it's a great discovery Gus! The well matured rust that had been worn over the many years sadly taking a break and shelter under the scorching sun, and nobody cares, xcept you. I love the dark colouring set off nicely there, crispy sharp and the positioning really works and the greenery gives a nice break there and easy on the eyes. A fine shot worth the effort, Congrats.
Warm regards

Hola Gus.
Una composicion muy interesante y original, esta vieja reliquia de coche ha quedado para el desguace, en una zona sombreada, la composicion es agradable con ese entorno natural, como es ese gran arbol y sus grandes ramas, muy bonito el efecto de sus pequeñas hojas que dan un bonito grafismo con el fondo del cielo.
Buen manejo de la luminosidad y una optima nitidez.
Te deseo un feliz inicio de semana.
Un abrazo.

P/D. Sobre mi foto del puente en Isfahan, te dire que es un gran puente, que tiene una parte superior para el trafico y otra inferior como una calle cubierta, con arcos para los peatones, que buscan alli un agradable lugar de encuentro, al frescor de la sombra y de la humedad del rio, tambien es agradable la brisa, alli se baja por escalinatas desde las orillas del rio.

Ciao Gus,
i like the theme and how you managed the light, i think this is one case were the HDR work very well, your compo is perfect, nice tones and sharp, good colors too...well seen and taken...
best regards...

Hi Gus,
el mal estado de este viejo coche expuesto al sol y a las altas temperaturas es evidente, y es lógico que se vaya deteriorando inexorablemente bajo estas condiciones.
Pero te ha ofrecido su grafismo para crear una foto agradable, en combinación con las verdes plantas y el árbol, bajo un eficaz juego de luz y sombras.
Me gusta el resultado, es una foto sencilla pero poderosa visualmente.
Un abrazo,

Hello Gus,
Well, yes, the car is in a pathetic condition. But the photo you took is great! I like very much the way the leaves create this texture effect, it is almost like a painting! The ample light adds more to that sensation...

Best regards

Hola bambino

What a great shot. I love old rusty cars and this is a fantastic example of this type of photography. Nice framing and good sharpness and colours. Troppo bella!

Un abrazo

Hello Gus.
I always like the pictures of abandoned wheels as they have unique texture especially a rusty one like this. Nicely captured under the shade during a hot day. You have managed the exposure well exposing beautiful details.
Thanks for sharing and have a great week ahead.

Yes, it has come to the end of its road!

I admire the look of this foot and would be interested in a little more info on your processing. The greenery is crisp and bright -- when I try for this effect I often wind up with something that looks over-manipulated. Likewise to some extent the shadows on the ground and on the corrugated steel fence -- bright and crisp without appearing overwrought.

Nicely done, however you did it!
