Challenge: Words II (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Pentax K10D
Lens: Sigma 28-80mm f/3.5-5.6 Aspherical HF for Pentax
Location: Nikko City
Date: Sep 18, 2013
Aperture: f19
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/60
Date Uploaded: Sep 18, 2013

A double exposure of a sign along the road in Nikko. Apparently the place is a flour factory, but it also looks like some kind of hotel with maybe a bakery. A multi-tasking place, anyway.

Levelling, cropping, rotating, smart sharpening, embordering, saving.

Himawari is a closer literal translation of the French tournesol than sunflower. ("Sun-turning")

Though this has nothing to do with the entry, it amuses me that the original name in the Tintin books, in French, for Professor Cuthbert Calculus is Professeur Tryphon Tournesol.

This will either do quite well because of the beautiful calligraphy, or bomb totally because most voters won't be able to deal with the characters. (And also "Himawari" looks a bit like "Itimawari" on this sign.) At the time of submitting, though, it's certain to get a ribbon as it's only the third entry.(Sep 18th, 7:12am)

Here's the single exposure:

just a road sign? I thought you were photographing art... but you were making art! I still gave you a 7, but I underrated you. Very well done.

Love the colors and the words on words look of this one. Wish it didn't have those two mitered corners. Still one of my top picks. Voted earlier; back to comment.
