I think this is my favorite of the three truck images. Well done. I like that there are no distracting elements. The angle of the truck is a strong element.

Very beautiful truck... all your HDR are excellent...
I prefer a dark background for the blog... did you try it ?

@Francesc B.: I tried some of the dark backgrounds but couldn't find one which really allowed the fonts to show ell.
