Get rid of your shadow & crop out the car on the right.

Also if you have them, mess around with your "levels" setting.

I'm not too much worried about the Buick in the pic because it's in my drive way. Also I didn't set the timer to give myself enough time to move out of the way because, I heard a car coming and I was like awesome some streaks of light in the photo. I wasn't too worried about my shadow at the time. I may go redo it tomorrow night after I get off work.

I'll have to check into it and see if I have that.

Quick show of what levels can do. ( I also did clone out your shadow, poorly and quickly, but it is gone none the less. :]] )

Can you retake it?

Move the car out of the frame.
Move your truck to the right so the light pole doesn't look like it's growing out of your truck. Also by moving you truck to the right you should be able to keep the car port thing out of the pic.
If you have a remote trigger you will be able eliminate your shadow.

Then wait for a car to drive by & get that killer shot!!

Ditto! I would also turn off the lights on your truck. If you move over a little you could capture the "light trails" reflecting off the side of your truck.

This would be a good example photo set on what not to do for the how to thread.
Also a good example of why you want to pic your spot vs a driveway shot.

Exactly! Though the truck is the focus of the picture, be aware of the surroundings and avoid distractions. (That was not pointed at you Dcrymes, just stating it for others to learn. You had a good start to a picture!)
