I believe what’s left of this vehicle used to be a truck…possibly from the 1950s. Can’t help but feel sorry for it, being in that state. Taken in a scrap yard near Vineland ON, Canada, which is a hefty stone’s throw east of Hamilton towards Niagara Falls.

My Nikon D50 and 70-300mm VR lens were responsible for the image, and defringing in Tiffen software is reponsible for the appearance…as well as some enhancements in CS5.

  • Thanks Paul. Tried this Defringe in Tiffen on an earlier image some time ago, and liked what I got. So thought this would be a good candidate. >Ron<

    Very effective processing Ron! The selective coloring works great on this image. Good find too.

  • Kindest thanks Carol. I enjoy returning to this scrapyard as there’s almost always something I haven’t seen before. ♥Ron♥
