i do like this picture the only complaint is the blurring of the back ground seems strange like its not quite blurred enough right around the truck. i believe you did it in a photo program because so parts of the same tree are blurry and others aren't like the section between the left mirror and the truck the trees aren't as blurry

Yep, good eye, the blur was added in post-processing. Thanks for the :+fav:

I like the use of a wide apperture which makes the truck really stand out in this shot!! :thumbsup:

Thanks. I actually blurred the background in post-processing to give it that effect.

This is a great shot. I like the blurring of the trees behind the gives almost a surreal effect. How did you do that? Did you blur the top frame and focus the second...It looks like a very complicated piece of work...but it's really effective

Thanks. The blur effect was one of the last things I did to the image. I just used the polygonal lasso tool in PS to select the background area, and then took the blur tool to it.
Also, thanks for the :+fav:!

Thanks for that...I'm clueless with PS so when I see something cool I tend to ask how it's done :-)
