    We were driving by this old truck stop on the way to the beach. I had to stop and take a photo. I felt something when I saw it, and just snapped a quick pic. What could I have done different? I love it, but I could use some advice

  2. I'm not an expert, but i think the focal point should have been on the gas pump not just the area around it... the color should have been more vibrant, and more of a macro shot...

    Get much closer to the pump. The area surrounding it isn't that interesting. And don't leave it dead center in the frame.
