I remembered this sign when I saw the challenge. When I got there, I found it had been knocked down by Katrina. My son picked it up to take it back to where it belonged... and the idea hit me. BTW, we did not steal the sign.

Processing was minimal: Convert from RAW, Curves, hue/saturation, crop & resize.

I realize the background is busy and distracting... I tried to minimze it with curves, but now the image is a bit too dark. I'm sure I'll get comments on both those :) *shrug* Perhaps I'll get a chance to go back and re-shoot some time.

Well, since people asked about his expression... we were doing this picture and Chad, as usuall, was a little less then cooperative. So I told him "Chad, let's get this done... some girls are comming down the trail." I then snapped the picture as his head whipped arround. The next shot had him fussing at me for lying.

This photo has captured the essence of a worried kid. It is either great acting or great directing combined with great photography.

Tee hee hee. Very funny shot. I always like images that make me chuckle. The sign is very, very bright, almost a bit too bright for me personally. Love the title - works very well. 8
