I found this old rusty truck abandoned on the side of the road while jogging on vacation last week. I went back the next day with a camera...

is it a panel truck? maybe a tighter crop with less ground in front would help.

Thanks for the input Rick. This isn't really the kind of photography I usually shoot, so any insight is much appreciated.

And no, not a panel truck. It was some kind of flatbed with wooden rails.

I would guess that a closer shot taken about 45° to the left in landscape mode would have shown both the front and the wooden rails along the side. That angle might have been more dramatic and interesting. Just a thought.

Thanks for the tip Hugh. My original thought was that the headlights and grill resembled a frowning face (with some imagination) and would give the scene some personality from this angle. I like the idea of shooting it at a 45° angle to add dramatic depth. I will definitely keep that in mind for future opportunities.
