Your right...shooting from a lower angle would have been better. A lot of distractions for sure. I like the brick wall though because that is the feel of the town. It is old and run down, just like the wall

If here is some personal connection to this truck, I suggest leave it as on very first one. Because it is closer to reality.
The rest... I was doing it as well some ears ago.

Liked it, but later on I realized what it is better to be painted with light mostly, not with PP tools.
Light which you have to wait or just encounter.

I'm NOT showing my pictures to show how is better, but what to think about.
Lower sun, softer light, wider angle, closer distance, wider aperture and so on :).

Thank you. I always appreciate help. And I know that when you first start out with PP, you tend to be over the top. I have a personal connection to the town, surrounding area and the memories the truck represents so I did keep the original as well. As well, I plan on keeping some photos as I go along, learning. So then in like five years I can look back and go OMG...what was I doing! Lol

Kristine, I think with the tools you used you did a very good job.
Your second edit is preferred in my view.

Hope you don't mind, but look into layers and masks, dodge and burn.

I'll PM you an example.
