Drove 48 miles out of my way to take this picture. I have seen it on the internet before so decided on the deadline date for this challenge to drive up there and take it for this challenge. I don't know if it will qualify as a "road sign" but it is right on the road.

nice potential, but needs better composition. if the camera were pulled back, moved a bit left and down to put teh sign in the upper right corner and show ore of the truck(er).. good exposure considering the lighting available (an assumption o the lighting, but the traffic lights and gas station ights are a hint)

Very funny. This would have been a real winner with a little bit better exposure and color balancing

Not for the picture, but solely for the sign... Unfortunately the Colts lost last week though.

Too funny! Good exposure in wierd lighting conditions. Cropping on left would have eliminated most of the telephone wires and the electric cord.

OH this is to funny. Don't really call that a road sign and yet everything about it says highway travel. It's really a neat sign and glad you captured it. Well worth an 8 just for the laugh.

Ha! I was gonna make the trip down to Tipton to get this. It was the first thing I thought of. Thanks for posting it, I always chuckle when I pass it going down to Indy.

The composition isn't real exciting though. Maybe try a different angle, or use a smaller aperture to blur the back ground and put more focus on the sign.
