I stumbled upon these two signs in a small mining town and thought it was hilarious. Probably not the best out of my photos I took for the challenge but the story won me over.

Lightroom "Dust Storm" preset was used for editing.

Hello from the critique club...

1st thing that caught my eye was not the pic itself....it was the street names on the signs. You could not have asked for a better combination of names. It gave me a little chuckle. As far as the shot itself....There are a few blown areas that are a bit distracting. The sun can sometimes play havoc. I do like the "dust storm" effect. It feels like it's from an old mining town in Utah. I also think the clouds are interesting. Happy shooting

Great spot and beautifully framed in the light.

Simple yet striking, you have turned the mundane into something worthy of a second look.

Heh, someone had a sense of humor.

The blown out areas of highlights detract from the image, but the overall concept of making it look like a portal into hell (?) is good.

Ha! Indeed.

If you had not over cooked the colors on this it could have been one of the top photos. Then again this is DPC so it could still be, but not to my liking.

Love the "play" here, but those few overblown spots are harsh on my old eyes...
