This was a return engagement for this image. Since the first version there has not been a frosty day in Denver, hence the lack of implied ice in the original. What is interesting to me is how the mood varies with the actual outdoor conditions. This version was taken in subdued light and the sky in this image reflects this. I tried taking another image of this same pickup truck on a sunny daya week previous to this attempt, and it actually looked as though the sunlight was reflecting on the water.
This image was taken inside a rusty metal container that was partially filled with water. The original colors were rather pale and ugly but they spruced up nicely with some color filtration and amplification.

A friend of mine told me about a metal recycling yard that he had been to that had a lot of dumpsters and scrap metal. I drove over and received permission to take pictures as long as they are not recognizable as people. I hope that I succeeded!

I just didn't see this coming! I could see the form but thought it would probably end up as a monochrome image as this was a rather flat scene on a concrete surface. I added some color filters that brought out the incipient values but had no idea that such wild colors would pop out the way they did. I think that this surface will soon be covered with something like tile or trim. After all, who wants to stare at random stains on concrete?

Need to add a description for this to show on the gallery page
