The angle of this shot, the color composition... the subject... This is such excellent work!

I love old trucks

Behind The Lens

Location
This was shot in Mustang Grove Park in Farmers Branch. The truck had just been placed there when I shot this, it has since been converted to a sign advertising the farmer's market that takes place here.
Time
I shot this in early afternoon
Lighting
I used available lighting. The sun would have set just to the left of the truck in this shot - I didn't want it to be too low in the sky so it didn't overpower things.
Equipment
I shot this hand-held with a Canon 70D and Tamron 16-300mm lens
Inspiration
There are several parks in the area and I was just walking around looking for something interesting to shoot. When I noticed they had placed the truck there I had to take some shots of it!
Editing
This is an HDR combo of 3 different exposures using Lightroom.
In my camera bag
I normally carry a Canon 70D with a Tamron 16/300mm mounted and a 5D Mk III with any number of lenses ranging from a 8mm diagonal fisheye to a Sigma 200-500mm telephoto, depending on what I'll be shooting. I'm usually looking for cool things at random while traveling, so I don't get to plan a lot of shots beforehand - I've found I spend the most time with various prime lenses and the 17-300mm Tamron though, the Tamron's range lets you capture almost anything on the fly and reduces the need for lens changes out in the open
Feedback
I think this shot works due to the very shallow depth of field, highlighting the texture of rust and dry-rotted tire. If possible, use as long a lens as possible so you can stand farther back, and keep the aperture pretty open. You don't always have to get the whole subject in a shot (the truck), sometimes certain features make cool abstract shots...
