Thoughts on this processing? Before and after, After photo is on the top.
Trying to get an older style look with a slight painting feel.

i enjoy the pp you've done. however, it looks like the wooden railings got blown out a tad bit. (this is a nit pick, i know) i would try going back in and masking or burning that detail back into that wood a little.

i must say though (and i know you didnt ask) but composition wise, i'm totally not liking the mad lean the truck has going on. i'm not sure if its parked in a down hill fashion or something. you may be able to straighten it. or perhaps you like it tilted. just thought i'd throw my 2 cents in there as well.

Personally I think the processing is great! Good job.

Thank You, so many times I get little or no response for my images. The truck is actually parked over the edge of a hill along with a few other cars from that era. This was shot between takes on a movie set during the lightest part of a rain storm that lasted the entire day. I will repair the wood, I do agree it is questionable.

As far are the tilting I believe your refering to the back of the truck being lower? The other images with the horizon show the photo is level, I just left it at the same angle to not throw the tree angle off.

The reflection in the door doesn't work for me.
Nice start on this photo.
Maybe next time try a different perspective, bring a ladder or something.
I sure like the location and the truck.

Old style, certainly. Slight painting feel? Not too sure i get that from the edit. I like how it currently is tho!

Thanks everyone for you comments and suggestions.

The slight painting feel is mostly visible in the grass, I had to keep it toned down on this one or the grass was overdone. To much also made the rain streaks disappear. (visible in the full res) Spent 27 years as a photo realistic airbrush artist so its hard to stray to far from real.

Very nice post processing!! And like others have said, the overall composition would be the only critique I have since the truck is dead center of the image.

Nice. It might have been a good subject for HDR too...

Thanks again, I didn't have much choice for composition, huge bush to the right and a production crew to the left between takes.

There is actually a layer blend of a psuedo HDR in this photo. Here is a quick and dirty demo while I was testing screen recording.
