Whooo about 130 photographs taken for this challenge. At first, drove into the country on a bright clear blue sky day and shot 90 images of nice red signs against nice blue skys, with a nice poloriser. Some came out very well, but then thought that many people will do the same and then mine may not look so good.

So trying something slightly different.

I like the feeling of speed mixed with the calm of the verge. With the subject being a speed sign, it kind of gels together.
(I think) ;)

Great photo, colors are good, Really like the lights captured by long exposure. The garbage on the road is quite distracting.

Smart shot. Nice composition and contextual detail. A touch heavy on the reds and I'd like to have seen the streaks right across the shot.

Good use of time-lapse to convey motorists disobeying the sign. To me, the trash bags detract from the shot.

Great picture !

Allows one to slow down enough to toss out one's garbage!
01/25/2004 11:07:55 PM
Cool shot, just wish the trash bags weren't in there
01/25/2004 01:18:18 PM
Without the bags of trash would be a better photo, I am intrigued, but the trash distracts me.

Pity about the rubbish bags, great shot 9

would it have been better without the garbage bags there?

Good entry. I'm not crazy for the trash bags, but guess it adds interest. Good luck.

This would be so attractive without the garbage bags. I don't know if they are supposed to represent some concept I'm not gettting.

I didn't expect to like this, from the thumbnail, but that's why I pay little heed to thumbnails...

I really like the way the rubbish bags add a certain mood to the image. Composition feels well balanced to me.

It would be a nicer picture without the trash bags...I like the car lights zooming past and the sign is interesting...
01/22/2004 08:05:54 PM
To me those bags of garbage detract from what would have been a really attractive shot.
01/22/2004 03:50:55 PM
Would have preferred the trash not be in the picture...... Otherwise - cool shot!
01/22/2004 02:47:13 PM
Think it would look better w/o the bags. Otherwise great shot w/ interesting lighting
01/22/2004 12:44:17 PM
not sure what the garbage means..maybe I missed some other inuendo? If there's no hidden message then it just distracts from the reast of the pic which is actually awesome.
01/21/2004 05:16:15 PM
great shot. i like the realism by including the garbage. it might be a tad too red overall, however, it's still easily one of the best shots this week.
01/21/2004 03:42:15 PM
Very nice photo and effect; but the garbage bags really spoil the fun!
01/21/2004 03:15:58 PM
Very sharp and well exposed
01/21/2004 02:14:37 PM
cool shot...would be better without all the garbage bags. 8
01/21/2004 01:56:56 PM
Gorgeous. Interesting. Relevant.
01/21/2004 12:34:08 PM
Really nice colours and composition. 10
01/21/2004 11:42:36 AM
The picture is very good, except by this garbage.
01/21/2004 11:17:43 AM
well done!
01/21/2004 10:29:18 AM
I would have liked this photo better without the trash on the corner...too distracting.
01/21/2004 09:34:20 AM
Nice. I wish something other than trash bags were in the foreground with the sign, but i guess that couldn't be helped. Very well done.
01/21/2004 09:20:16 AM
Great shot, was that a truck that passed by?
01/21/2004 08:23:49 AM
Would have been better without the rubbish bags.
