The circle of light around the tractor makes the image look odd.

I was just thinking: "Is this tractor from a Fallout game?"

Regardless, I like it overall, but agree it could use a recropping (if possible)

It's a cool image, but something really wrong with the processing for it to have that glow all around it.

Can you post the original 0EV image?

it's not a glow, it is a vignette that i applied in CS4 trying to set a dark mood but not severely darkening the tractor.

here is the 0ev

great tractor. Looks almost sad as if it knows it work days are done and has been cast aside.

OK, it's a vignette. But as with most effects, the key to their use is to not overuse them. I would dial it way back from the tractor, just darkening the edges of the frame and the corners somewhat.

But honestly, vignettes are usually used to separate the main subject from a busy background. You don't have a busy background here, so I would likely not use a vignette at all.

I appreciate your input Michael but I disagree that vignettes are typically used just to separate a subject from a busy background. A vignette is often added to an image to draw interest to the center and, in effect, frame the center portion of the photo. In this particular photo, because the background in so plain, I used it to reduce the exposure of the background to put even more emphasis on the subject. Artistically, it is exactly what I was going for, you might not like it and I respect that but I think I will leave it as is..
