That is an amazing photo. Maybe in like 50 years I'll get a pic that good .

What kind of post processing did you do? What where your camera settings?

Thanks for the comments, everyone.

iblaineman, the settings of the camera are as kex posted, as for post processing, I had played with my manualwhite balance settings the previous night, and forgot to reset the white balance [I only use manual WB]and the series of shots taken of this vehicle came out with a slightly greenish hue which I adjusted back to what it should have been. Contrast, etc stayed as recorded.You can see the green at the left top in this next pic [taken just before the above]

The following pic was taken about a week before from more or less the same spot, with no post processing at all.I went back to the spot to try and capture the same scene as i was not happy with the lens flare

I have looked at these pictures several times with mixed emotions. I agree that they are spectacular photos. However, the thing that bothers me is the message behind these pictures. I can't help think about the damage being done to the land by these vehicles and the problems created by stirring up all that dust. Not only does the dust get into and on everything but that is soil that is being blown away, never to be replaced. (e.g. erosion).

Ok, I've put my soapbox away. Great photos, just the same.

Mmm! Let's see ... The crude lines that lead to the focal point are intriguing. Your enthusiasm betrays a newly discovered passion but your bold images are refreshing in their raw power. Like a punch in the face. May stardust settle on your photographs.

This reminds me of the areas I drivethrough inmy job. Looks like a property going on the boundery fence. Am I seeing power lines in the image or is it something else.???

A nice shot anyway.:-)
