This is a shot that I took almost 8 years back, newbie then and still newbie now consider I dun shoot much.

Was taken using my dynax404si with b/w film. Scanned the negatives and went thru photoshop to change it to sepia for the old look, all camera settings were auto mode.

Had posted this b4 on the KM forum. Love to have C&C from you folks here. thanks a bunch.

Hmmm, I think there's too many of them so I cannot focus the wear and tear of just one bus.

The guy cycling pass is also rather distracting to me.

There are some shots of abandoned vehicles published that are usually like alone in the desert etc.... they seem to have a sense of rejection in the mood of the pictures which you may want to depict in your 'Old buses' line of work.

Just my two cents worth.

The guy on the motorbike is a nice touch. Adds depth and scale to the picture, provides counterpoint. Imagine if there were no guy, it would just be a picture of 3 buses.

Sepia tone not so nice-- perhaps you need better photoshop actions.

I do see your point, on those lone abandoned old vehicle either at the backyard or desert.

The mood that I have got in mind was like a "graveyard" of abandoned buses, which had served their pursposes to mankind and and then conveniently chuck away to rot by themselves.

whereas for the motorbike, my view is that it provide sort of a contrast to the dead buses.

my 2cts. :)
