Hi there 'Mustbelost'
__________________________________
Fits The Challenge-Yes, yes, 100% + the good humor just adds to the shot.

Composition-Very nicely done. I do think a giant step to the right would of added to the photo. The DOF is nice here as is the focus.

Background-Very good, good dof.

Digital Processing-Technically well done. I do think the levels could of been adjusted and the colors. The trees are just a little flat and dark.

My Opinion-Cute sign..would of been better if the road was flooded...? I don't know it gets the point across, it fits the challenge and it gives a giggle. I voted it high during the challenge I really thought it might win.
I like this shot and really have enjoyed this review. Thanks.

Thank you for all your nice comments, and hints on how this photo could have been better. I am learning a lot, thanks to everyone. The strange thing about this sign is that there is no body of water around it anywhere and I have lived near it for the last 15 years and have never seen the road under water. It is truly a DUH!

Good crisp clean focus on the sign. I like the inclusion of the road, but perhaps including the body of water would add interest, to show how easy flooding could occur?

LOL! No kidding!! :0) Good find! and good composition/exposure.

When I was in elementary school the father of one of my classmates had an Amphi-Car -- a small semi-roadster convertible which was watertight below and had a couple of propellers under the read bumper. You could drive it into (calm) water and use it as a motorboat. Would sure be handy here!

Wow! Where would you find a sign like this. Good Find! Lots of Humor in this one. . .:)

I know I commented this! Very good shot! Great focus, color and I esp. like the framing. Including the road adds context helpful for the viewer. I like that! (Gosh, I wish I could remember all the great stuff I wrote the first time...) Very good shot. Strong 8. Swash

You reckon???? Good use of depth of field -- the sign is sharp and is accentuated by the background being just slightly blurry. The road entering at the bottom adn curving upwards is also effective. I think if you could have shot/cropped it so that it wasn't so tight on the left, it might have been a little more effective for me. Still an awesome shot.

Oh if only the road was under water when you took the picture then it would be perfect. Next time you should order a flood at the start of the challenge

LOL! Great title. Composition is great, I like the way the sign dominates the right hand side and the road runs up the left edge (maybe a bit too close, but it works).

Yeah? You don't say... (LOL)
Well done.

Nice framing (both road and sign) and nice focus and exposure. Your title is also funny.

What a good find for a road sign, this one gave me the giggles. Your focus was very good, sharp on the main subject and then goes fuzzy in the background. The road trailing on the left is a nice touch, but I think it is cropped a bit too close. Overall good job.8.

Nice framing including the road in the photo.

Nice colour and focus....the trees give a very nice perception of depth. 9

Good one! And excellent composition and a title that actually makes the sign funny (go figure ;) You get the only 9 so far.

lol Duh. Very funny. What are they thinking when they make such stupid signs? Neat find.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Great photo. To me this should be number 1. It's a great photo and has to have to dumbest and most unnecessary sign ever. Great job of a really neat capture. It's a 10 in my book.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/20/2003 05:43:55 PM
LOL Cute. Love it nice clear shot. Too bad the road wasn't under water at the time!!!!! ;)

Ha! I was hoping to see some unintentionally funny signs like this! The Travel section of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette always features a funny sign like this in the Sunday edition. Send 'er in! :)
