Cool colour and composition. The signs is a little too bright for my taste, but at least it really stands out against the baclground. On second thought, it's fine. 8.
Revisit. Bumping to 10.

Nice colours, can see a bit of yellow on the sign though. I don't think it affects the shot to much though.

It's a pity you couldn't spot edit those orange spots on the sign. I really like the dramatic sky.

Love the colors in this...the contrast really brings out the sign! Great photo!

The lighting balance is spot-on here. The brightness of the sign sits very well with the angriness of the sky.

An image that shouts, "Look at me!"

Good use of a filter to create a unnatural feeling. Well done.

wonderful timing and shot.

I know this is the theme of the challenge, to take a picture of a road sign but here I feel that you took a picture of a beautiful sunset and that stupid sign is in the way and I think it should be the other way around, the sign be the main subject and the backround just that, a backround.

Anyway don´t get me wrong, it´s still a good shot and one of the better in the challenge so I gave it a 7. The sunset itself in another challenge like a free study and withouth the sign I would have probably given 9 or a 10, it looks stunning.

I don't know what R R means but the image is magical, the sky seems on fire!!!

Shame you couldn't dodge out the sign to get the yellow back in the RR sign. I'lll bet the fully edited shot is amazing; never the less this is a beautifull shot8

sign is way overexposed...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/03/2005 02:21:20 AM
wow....this is by far my favorite photograph of the challenge....the composition is excellent, the placing of the sign, everything about it is great!
Not to mention the beautiful deep shades of red and sillhouetted trees in the foreground....amazing.....a 10!!!
I'm predicting this will be one of the top 3...

Incredible background

From the looks of the sign, you must have used a direct fill flash. Even if its diffused, any direct flash on a sign like that is going to cause the sign to burn up and become white because the light goes straight back into the lens, it's just like red eye, only in this case its with a sign. I'd suggest unmounting your flash and maybe lighting the sign from an extreme angle, so long as the light doesn't go straight back into the lens, you should be ok, or at least better off. Over all, I like this photo, but it would be even better if the sign hadn't burned up so badly. Nice job with the frame.

Love the sky, but the sign is a distraction

I like the way everything but the sign is silhouetted and how vibrant the RR sign is but whith such a high contrast I find it very hard to look at. I also find that there is something in the middle of the sign that is very distracting. Great color and clarity and awesome silohouettes. well done and keep up the good work. <7>

Love the firey sky. I almost think the sign is a half stop too bright...but still should place highly.
