Panasonic DMC-FZ70       6th place, 121 points
1/320s, f4.9, ISO 100, 111mm, Landscape, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Crop a little, straighten a tiny bit, clone out some minor protrusions on the shed roofs, increase detail, make adjustments to saturation (a bit more on trucks, a bit less in sky and driveway) reduce noise in sky.       Extra Info: Taken late afternoon/ early evening, these postal trucks were all tucked away for the night. I had to poke my camera between bars to take the shot and there were security cameras around, so hopefully that was okay.

    Thank you everyone for your votes and comments.
I was mistaken in thinking these trucks were put away for the night. I've been past the same spot since, later in the evening, and all the trucks were absent. They must get filled up and then go on their journeys. The front yard was, however, full of small postal vans.

    I thought of shooting a post office in the US, but chickened out because of fear of the authorities!!! Good for you!

    I'm really impressed with the amount of colour and detail you have captured in this photo. Nice use of perspective to draw the eye in.

    It's rare to be able to make such a super shot from the rear of a vehicle. This works very well thanks to your composition. Eye catching, striking reds and on theme. Well done!

    Good bold colours and a nice sky. The eye is drawn down the line of trucks. In my T5

    Great find. I might have cropped out the lead truck, otherwise it is a great image for this challenge.

    You know I would have really tried doing just one truck and filled the frame since I think it would be a stronger image but the subject is so vibrant, it still works here.

    On theme; nicely executed shot of a not overly exciting subject. Hope you didn't get on somebody'd watch list!

    Right on theme; well spotted; can see the limitations of position for shooting but an interesting result; light on sides of the vans maybe a bit strong in contrast with the pastel sky...

    The saturated red color makes this image much more compelling along with the decrease in saturation of the other colors. Nice post-processing choice.
