I also like the angle of the truck, plus the fact that the enitre truck is in front of the darker trees, that helps separate your truck. When you re-shoot try to keep that same angle, and try shots at 30 minute intervals if you possibly can. That will help give you several sun angles to choose from for the best color rendition of the truck. Good luck.

maybe nitpicking, but why is air-brakes in the list of courses? If it needs to be there, you should place it above Safety courses.
If the truck is silvergrey, shouldn't be the image like:

Hell I like it and, I already have a CDL though. But a question. If I wanted just enough time to upgrade my CDL from a B to an A class, do you have programs for that? It seems most here in the US want you to go through their whole programs to do that which is stupid to me. When all an experienced driver needs is some practice with trailers and, windsheild time with an instructor. I have been driving for 10 years and, vehicles that weigh up to 120,000lbs.

If the truck is silvergrey, shouldn't be the image like:
In British Columbia, our Commercial drivers licenses have a separate endorsement for Air Brakes. Class one (tractor/trailer) and Class three (tandem axle trucks) all have air brakes, but Class five (single axel trucks) can have either air or hydraulic brakes.

We offer the air brakes course to our students and to others who need it. We have to offer it every month for the students in our school that need it for their license as it must be completed before they can take their road test. With the courses we offer under contract to community colleges in other cities we do between 15 and 20 air brake courses a year. Each course takes 20 hours over three days.

We use Air Brakes as a selling tool for our big courses, so it is a very important part of our marketing, even though it is not a big money maker. I am happy to just break even with it most times. It is like milk at the grocery store, no one makes money on it, but you have to offer it to be in business.

That is is why it is placed high in the list.

The tractor is actually mostly silver. I sampled the tractor to get the lighter band of color for the text area. I am still not satisfied with the image and I am going to reshoot it.

We offer what is called a 3 to 1 upgrade. It assumes that a person knows how to shift (using a double clutch action) a non-synchronized transmission.

It takes 22 hours to get ready for a road test which lasts 2 hours if the driver has no less than a few months of driving time. If we have to teach them to shift, it takes longer. Our regular class 1 is 48 hours of training, and our Class 1 with advanced mountain training is 72. Those are in-vehicle hours, add 40 hours for air brakes and other classroom courses.

Thanx I was just curious if it was a problem with the US schools. We only have the Class A&B for OTR driving and, alot of endorsements for, multiples, tankers, Hazmat ect.
Well you could try to set up a refector to lighten up the darkside and a polarizer to kill the brightness on the roof. That is about all I can think of to improve it.

Rocky,

This might be nitpicking but, if you're going to re-shoot anyway, why not put a driver in the truck. You are teaching driving, not parking.

I'd be inclined to find a scenic, curvy road in the mountains and photograph the truck with a long lens as it comes around the corner. Or even a wide angle lens from close to the ground looking up as the truck rolled past. With a little location scouting you should be able to find a fantastic, scenic stretch of road where you're located and that would be more interesting than a parking lot shot. Sometimes you have to put the viewer in the photo by showing the product in action.
