Challenge: Road Signs Re-revisited (Basic Editing I)
Camera: Minolta DiMAGE A1
Location: Hall Road, Thomasville, GA
Date: Jan 15, 2004
Aperture: F9.0
ISO: ISO 100
Shutter: 1/4
Galleries: Travel, Action
Date Uploaded: Jan 19, 2004

Photo taken at 7:37 am at early morning light. One of first waves of bus loads heading down Hall Road. I wanted to shoot this from a kid's perspective, and catch relatively fast moving buses ironically. I increased saturation, cropped tightly and resized. I believe the final result captures many different areas of interest within this photo all playing off the posted sign and the theme of this challenge.

My first challenge, and a difficult one at that. With the morning light behind the sign, getting the exposure right on the sign was interesting.

My favorite so far! well done. Love the speeding effect of the bus against the slow speed limit shown here.

I've always wondered if those school buses obeyed road signs!? This picture says it all! Very very clever picture!

Interesting motion and lights, must have been dark to get the slow shutter speed. Interesting image

Excellent timing! Your wait for the school bus was worth it. It adds an interesting element almost all other side-of-the-road shots don't have. Very small nit - the partial sign at the top detract a bit. Really well done.

The only thing taking away from the idea that athe bus is 'breaking school rules' are the other buses lined up looking either parked or moving very slowly. WIthout those, this pic would be awesome. 6

This is very well done. Love the motion in the last bus with the stopped busses in front. Nicely composed, maybe exposure is a little 'hot' but probably had to overexpose to get the motion. 9

why don't they look this fast when I'm behind them in my car? Nice choice of shutter speed.
