Cuba, New MexicoThis old work horse has been put out to pasture. This was quite a gem to find parked in the pasture at a B&B we stayed at after leaving Chaco Canyon. There was a white iron pipe fence a few yards behind the truck that I wanted to keep out of the composition, so I used an extreme wide-angle lens and got up close. This exaggerated perspective and a tilted horizon, although no visible, gives the truck some attitude and a feeling of movement.
I decided to use a softer color palette with this photograph which complements the faded crusty paint, while creating an interesting conceptual contrast against the hard geometry of the truck's lines, shapes, and sharp rusty edges.
I worked several different angles around the truck, and this one was my favorite.
