I am SO thrilled to have gotten into the top 20! Thank you very much for all the comments. For those who suggested a different angle... I would have, except the cross street sign would have been in the way. I was really pleased how it turned out anyway and glad others liked it too! Hurrah!

Nice finish. I wanted to capture "no name drive" but it's too far from here, and you did it similarly so no need for me to. LOL Congrats.

Blows Rule of Thirds away, but works. Good framing in separating the green from the blue with the cloud.

Nice sky, clever idea. I think an off-center sign, taken at an angle, would be more dynamic.

Good find! An unusual 'oxymoron'.

I think this would have looked good in black and white with a red filter to define the cloud better and with the sign away from the centre of your picture. 5

Ha ha ha, excellent. I see you guys use the same people we do to pick names for streets!

Beautiful colors. I love how the clouds frame the sign.

That is hysterical! Too bad the cross-street sign is in the way, but I really like this regardless!

Wonderful find and the image is in good shape technically. I really like the blue sky and clouds in the background. Nice and simple. That's good for this image - anything else would be distracting from the subject. The one problem I see is the placement of the subject. Danged if you do, and danged if you don't I think on this one. As is, it's very centered. Some will like that. Many won't I'm afraid. That cloud in the background...it has a nice diagonal line to it. If the sign was positioned a little lower (meaning you would have had to elevate yourself), and to the right in relation to that background cloud it would be a stronger presentation IMO.

Sorry if it sounds like I'm nitpicking, but it's the minor details that can really move (or lower) a photo in these challenges.

Best of luck to you.
