Well this is very, very impressive. A meticulous composition, it quietly extracts every possible artistic contribution from the lines of the buildings, the road, the street lighting, and the sparse but critical "props" (I even like the rubbish bag, if that's what it is). And of course the road signage is central to the motivation of the image and to its title, without being too in-your-face about it. Subtle and intelligent, this photograph can stand (and reward) several minutes' study, which is a clear measure of its strength. My top pick. 10.

Nice setup - the street lamp adds a lot, and good lighting on the two road signs (especially the 'no right turn') so they're still visible. It's too bad that there's a street lamp over the 'no entry' sign. Good composition / cropping. I think the graininess adds to the image, but would like to see a lilttle more sharpness around the signs - otherwise, I like the soft focus.

It would be nicer without the motorbike or the rubbish bags.

I really like this photo. The one thing I think that could be changed is the lighting on the actual street sign, seems a bit reflective for this photo. I do like the light coming off the building it creates an effect that reminds me of how streetlights are drawn in comic books (if that makes any sense to you). The shadows are great.

Nicely outside the box. Effective color cast. Mixed feelings on the blown highlights. Strong entry.
