Still using the SD600. Just bought a Rebel EOS (35mm) and a Canon S2 IS, should get both tomorrow!

Good looking promo shot. Image is a little soft, you might want to apply some unsharp mask to make it crisper.

I agree with flippedgazelle, other than that great shot.

Looks like there's the beggining of a storm in that picture, great truck shot though ChrisBnAZ. I would try backing up or maybe a wider angle to incorporate more of the desert but still keep the truck the centre of attention. If you get more of the desert in the shot it will add to the story of the truck. Like where this machine is capable of going, or has already conquered.
I wish this forum had an automotive section, i've got some pictures I could post

i think the first one was better (framing wise)

kinda like one youd see in a magazine, the rain clouds really did it i think

I find the first one too "in your face". With the shot so close it makes it easy to critique every little detail, for example the ding in the left of the bumper. The first one is still a great shot, but I guess the second is just a personal preference thing. I agree about the rain clouds, it compliments the truck colour. Should experiment with some colour adjustment to bring out the red of the dirt.

I was just saying i think the first one would be more like a shot youd see for an advertisement, but the second one i like more and more as i look at it. It'd be better for a center spread

*good idea on brining out the color of the dirt. If you do it nicely, itll be great, i already can smell that smell of wet dirt like its about to rain just from looking at the picture, and it's strangely comforting :-)
