Until this sign popped up a week ago on my regular drive to work, I did not know I was driving past a minimum security lock up every day.

Initially, I scored this quite low. But then I came back and gave it a 7. I like the lighting, and the movement, and the grey background, and the various pin-points of light interest.

Sign is interesting but not enough for just a static photo, so I like the fact that vehicles were blurred to provide motion.

more effort in telling people there may be escapees than in keeping them detained? LOL

I agree with your decision to include the road and the car lights along with the sign. The twilight lighting is great, and the motion blur is not excessive.

whoa! watchout! Just wish the sign itself had a little more light on it. Otherwise awesome job!

Would have been more interesting if there was a hitchhiker trying to bum a ride next to the sign. :)
