The photograph is called "Pink Merc", so I assume that the vehicle is the subject here. I am , however, drawn into the back corner of the two walls and also the 44 gallon drums. I find nothing appealing or thought-provoking there. Sorry!

That type of subject matter (i.e. junk) is not appealing to me. I think it was Alain Briot who said that he decided early on in his career not to photograph ugliness. That resonated with me and so it is with that in mind that photographs appeal to me, or not.

I have learned on this forum not to second-guess the photographer by offering opinions on how one thinks the photo should have been taken - something else that makes sense to me, so I won't.

This is not the type of photography I do nor am I that interested in, therefore, take what I say from whence it comes.

Now that is a useful critique. Well done.

You said it best, and it applies here!

To fence or not to fence.

I agree the photo would benefit from a  foreground but I don't think the fence, as is, works well.

Technically the image is correct, WB, focus on subject as it should be, framing adequate, colors correct.. but while correct there is nothing remarkable.

This leaves the composition holding up the entire image.  And the fence.  Interesting.

I meant of course to speak your mind. But if cut and paste is it, that will have to be it. Thank you.

To fence or not to fence.

To me, the fence and the barrels both add to this very good image. I find myself imaging a story about the car, and also about what the OP had to do to capture the image. Junk-yard dog growling?

Other 2
  • I don't care for the dark shadow in the foreground.
  • Might have been even better with the chain link fence even more out of focus?

Beautifully lit and intriguing because of the setting, including the wire fence.

I find the top left white area distracting and I would tone it down heaps.
