This is actually a scenic drive. This was the best view I could get that showed both the street sign and the background mountains. There are other signs but they are positioned at the wrong angle. I also cropped this picture so that it shows only the street name. The reason I did this was because right below the street sign was a stop sign with its back to the camera. It was a major distraction.

This is beautiful! The street sign pretty much sums it up I think. I like the heavy blue in the clouds and good natural color in the landscape. This is one of my top 5 rated pictures.

Great shot. Road sign challenge, but you managed to make the photo interesting as well. The sign is just big enough for the whole meaning of the photo. Well done.

Only if you were a little closer to the sign.

Very well seen and great execution. -9

No kidding! If only the sign were just a little more easily read it would be perfect.

Nice view. I'd like it better if the sign were larger or more obvious. I had to search to see what the connection with the challenge was.

One of the better ones I've seen. Good colors. The shadows are just a little heavy. I like the color saturation, but I think a little more exposure would've done you well for this shot. Good work 8

I think this would be better shot if the sign was more prominent. As it is, people may miss it - which is a shame. It's a well done, quirky, original shot, in my opinion. I give it a 9

Love the subtley of this and it's a great backdrop. Well spotted. It's a strangely gloomy sky compared to the radiant sunshine on the mountains.

great colors!

Absolutely beautiful shadows sky contrast and not to mention perfect sign for the scenic picture (pun intended)
01/22/2004 03:31:20 AM
Love the colour contrasts here
01/21/2004 05:24:24 PM
talk about the sign being secondary. really nice shot.
01/21/2004 02:56:00 PM
I'd like to see it a little bigger. It could be a big sharper too, but the colors are beautiful.
01/21/2004 01:36:20 PM
The more I look at this the more I like it. My only nitpick would be to have the sign a little more off to the side.
01/21/2004 11:59:24 AM
Very scenic, and nicely lit and captured. IMHO the sign could be further to the left, but that's being picky.
01/21/2004 09:56:39 AM
Very nice scenic view, not much emphasis on the road sign.
01/21/2004 09:07:28 AM
Great shot and nice colors!
01/21/2004 06:27:35 AM
i'll say
01/21/2004 01:15:35 AM
Beautiful Colors!

A little more of the sign would have been great, but still a nice picture
