Here is a picture I took while my better half was driving west on Highway 20 in Iowa. I love the look on the truckers face. If you look in the bottom mirror, you see the brown car. That's us. This was taken the first day I got my 40D and 70-300mm IS lens. Highway 20 isn't the smoothest road, so the IS must've been working well to capture the expression on his face. I didn't touch this picture. I am sur I could've brightened it up a but, but I like the fact that I can snap a picture and put it directly on here without touching it and it looks this good. Thanks for looking.
Please C+C.
BTW, we were going 75mph.

Thanks for sharing.

I can barely see the trucker's face. I had to look for quite a while to see it.

This really doesn't do much for me unless you could get the face to stand out.

I like it, you get to see every direction. It tells a story of solitude in the truck..and the road.

I agree. For a long time I was thinking 'What trucker's face?'.

Welcome Trekpic! Don't pay attention to Robert165...
You can get some great photo editing tips here, so don't feel shy to ask. If you didn't mind people helping you out with some of your pics you can display "image editing ok".

Good luck shooting :-)

I am looking at this picture at work, and I can hardly see the trucker on this screen. It really stands out on my laptop. Interesting. I see what you guys are talking about now. Maybe I will lighten it and repost.
Thank you for all the replies, and keep 'em comming!

I went to the Minnesota Zoo and will try to upload some shots of that trip soon.

Thanks again everyone!! ;)
