Beautiful low key classic picture!
It certainly works well enough for me. Its power and interest comes from the disparate elements coming into balance for a single moment within the picture frame - that and the extraordinary light. As for the face in the car, we can discern it only with some effort so it doesn't play a major role in the picture.
As composed and viewed on the screen, the face doesn't play too important a role, though if this were printed quite large it would definitely be more of a feature and factor. I can actually imagine some severe crops to make the face the kind of twisted subject which, inside the frame of the window, car, and rearview mirror could have some interesting potential. As shown, the scene is one of man's geometry against man's imagination stimulated by nature.
many thanks for your comments and feedback. The face is probably only 'visible' when seen large (at original resolution).
The rays of the sun... ... created this classical and beautiful light while I was roaming around in this industrial area. So, what to do with these "ingredients"? This photo is a result - but, frankly, I'm not at ease with it: does it 'work'? Or is it too cliché? Is the co-driver's face well enough discerinible to add to the "message" (she was surely wondering, why the heck is the guy poining his camera to this ugly scene)?
