The forest has outlived this Chevy pick-up truck and is now in the process of absorbing it. Image was taken with a Nikon D100 converted to Infrared imagery and then both contrast and brightness were increased in Photoshop CS3.

Very impressive composition and choice of camera/lens settings to produce the sharp counterpoint
Between the wreck and the forest.

Sad end for a truck easily recognized by my age group. Good catch and I particularly like it in B&W. Nice job.

A poignant image that speaks as much about our mortality as it does about the truck. This is what photography is about

I Think I saw this truck on a recent visit to Mt. Saint Helen. I was on a tour of the Snake and Columbia Rivers and the ST Helen visit was a side trip. There was no way to get the driver to stop and I only caught a glimpse of it as we whizzed by. Same one??

Trees like to eat old trucks. I like the treatment.

Nice treatment. Since it was IR, I assume that you did not not covert to B&W, just adjusted contrast/brightness?

I have actually been making the conversion to B&W more often recently as my D300 body has been converted to use an IR sensor filter called "some color" by Life Pixel. It normal results in an image with sepia tones. I liked that treatment for quite a while, and then I began to make more and more conversions to pure B&W. This image retains a few hints of that sepia tone.

Great shot, love it. Looks great with IR.


To pursue such shots you would fing old car city in White, GA interesting. White, GA is an hour out of Atlanta. 35 acres of cars giving themselves back to the earth. Managed a few interesting shots there.

Thank you Gupta... I think IR pretty much made the shot more interesting for me too. I have heard of the old car place you described, but I haven't been there. Ironically, I'm in GA at the moment, but I don't think I'm going to have a chance to get there on this trip.
