One word it is, and one we see all too often. ;)

The sky is lovely. Unfortunately, it grabs most of my attention, so little is left for the one word. Cropping the sky out would certainly bring the focus back to your subject, but would lose the asset of the sky.

A better approach I feel would be to lighten the forground. I have to agree with the commenters that it is a bit too dark because of the backlighting creating a near silhouette of the foreground. The haloing mentioned is the natural side effect of the backlighting.

As far as choice of perspective, the road creates a leading line, accented by the white line, but it does little for the image. A car parked on the word, or just before it would have implied action better. But the one thing that keeps nagging in the back of my mind is that I wish you had gotten higher -- but that may not have been possible.

Like the high contrast, really pulls the eye towards your username-word.

Photo fits the username you chose. I'd be curious to see what this looks like with the top half completely cropped off so the viewer's eye only sees the "oneword"

A bit distracting with the signs in the road, but its a creative depiction.

I think I can see that you have burned the sky I can see hallos around the tress, and the picture is just a little to dark in the foreground for me. If you used the burning affect I suggest you use a gradeint mask to darken next time.
