Bom dia Vic,

I like the crop you did here, excellent DOF and sharpness.
Good light, vivid colors.

Hi Vic

I would blur the sky to hide the dust bunnies. Quite a few of 'em. And clean the sensor. And the lens with a blower brush first then a soft lens tissue. I usually exhale on the lens to create a surface for the tissue. I never use an old tshirt with grease on it like some people I've seen! Anyway the red & blue contrast well & the sharpness is good. Tfs!

fantastique cadrage et compo superbe quel beua rouge quelle compo et iamge un sacrè camion qui brille génaiel cadrage et compo.

bravo et amitié


Very nice composition. Great pov and dof with sharp details. Wonderful colors and good saturation. Nicely framed. Very well done, tfs.

IMHO, the palm tree in the BG does decline the overall quality of the picture, dear Vic!
It could really be a superb shot if anyhow could get rid of the tree (in the BG).

Other than that, the POV for catching the details of the truck is well thought.
The sharpness and DOF are marvelous too.
Nice management of light and exposure as well.

Kind regards,

  • Great

Hi Vic

Being an ex fireman, this was going to catch my ear for sure. I love the sheen captured here, the sparkle off the chrome and the angle adopted for this shot.

Not sure re tree growing out of the roof though lol.


Stv :0))

Nice rich colours with sharp detail.
