The softer focus makes it look like a painting to me.  Excellent Ted.

Thanks, gents!

Good observation, Craig! I like to add a bit of "surreal" effect to shots like this that have rusty old abandoned cars, machines, etc in rural settings, as it emphasizes the details I want and softens the details I don't. I got the "painterly" effect you refer to in post by tone mapping in Photomatix followed by using the "Indian Summer" filter in Color Efex Pro to give it a warm glow, so it looked a little more "autumn."

You can't see it very well here, but on the full size image, when you zoom in, there's a grasshopper sitting on the left headlight.

^^^ Haha!

This at the entrance to a local's property who buys and restores old cars.

I have another photo of an old truck at the same location that I'll post soon.
