Have 'adjusted' colors on the bushes/trees at back edge of the photo??

I don't remember deserty plants being such deep green - they're usually closer to brown.

The title is meant to be a play on words. That car was parked and abounded there just a few years after it was bought.

Thanks for the kind words. The most challenging part of the shot was getting a van load teenagers to be patient while I set up the shot.

I did not adjust the colors on the tree specifically. The display on my iPhone is drastically different than my new HP laptop (more realistic). I am looking to get a Monitor color calibrator to help with post processing. Any suggestions?

Nice photo, rich colours, great lighting and I like the partially buried '59 Ford in the sand.
