Old Truck

Posted by
Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 21 July 2010 in Transportation.

This old truck is behind Rhyolite Mercantile. It seems to have become a ghost in its own right.

Rhyolite Ghost Town, Nevada
Part of The Great American West series.

As the human personality, little in the shadow, little in the light

Effective angle. Clever of you to give us both the old and the modern world with the use of both black and white AND color !!

Great POW and selective desaturation. These people give live to the photo and the dimensions of the place.

Love the POV, superb (that's personal but I'd have loved it even more in monochrome only - may i ask why you chose to keep color where the people are ? It's your choice, so it's the best here, no doubt !)

@k@: I had visualized processing it this way when I saw the people in the distance. I wanted to draw attention to them. Plus, I just enjoy using selective color occasionally.

MARIANA from Waterloo, Canada

Cool image, great compo , but why not completely in mono ?

21 Jul 2010 12:49pm

@MARIANA: While shooting this picture, I thought it would be fun to process it this way especially with the people down the road.

A fine idea to use the truck as a device for showing us the terrain and others enjoying the place. Creative coloring adds to the interest.

A good idea to have colour where the people are,and B&W where the ghosts are.

Great contrast between the outside and inside of the truck,
love the way you have treated each of the 4 main sections

I think there is something magical in this shot. Between the black and white effect and the coloured tones it seems this truck has seen a great deal of change in time.
