Nice finish, dude! I honestly didn't even notice the bird... but then again, I thought this was nearer to Brockway, too...

I didn't even notice the bird until I uploaded the photos to my computer. The other exposures/angles for the shot didn't turn out that great, so I had to use the one with the bird in it. I didn't like the composition with it cropped out, so I decided to leave it in. I would have loved to spot edit out the bird, but oh well. As they say, Que sera sera.

a more menacing sky, perhaps 666 south, and lose the bird!

Boy... I'd hate to be on this highway... Very nice picture. Clear image and I love the cloudy background!

I really like this photo. It's full of metaphors and if one is very imaginative one can draw analogies with the political events happening in the world nowadays. It would be great if there was a picture of another sign like that taken in Teeran and saying west on top of it. It is a pity you could not see the transcendence of your work and named it with an unfortunate name like that, still you get a high vote for the work.

Great idea. Get rid of the bird though. My wife just walked in and said, "Oh, Highway to Hell"? That would be a great tile too. This title is great. I tolder this title and she loved it better.

I like the composition and lighting, but the blue in the sky could "pop" more and liven up the shot. Also, to bad the bird happened to fly by when you took the shot. Still, it's a nice picture.

Funny, and beautiful! I like the color of the sky and I like how clean and crisp the sign is.

I like this very much but the bird spoils this a little, for me anyway

I would have liked to see a little more of what Satan's highway actually looks like :)

North of Brockway, PA, by chance...?

Perfectly focused sign and exposure. Heavied a tad heavily on left. Too bad bird wasn't in lower right corner.

Oh, you catch a bird too, by free. The crop may be cut out this bird, no? The picture itself is great. Interesting theme.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

perhaps a little rotation and so that the sign appears square with the frame, otherwie nice job, creative title

New Mexico's 666.....yikes. I thought they were going to change the name of that highway? Blaah! I rode there seveal time going to the four corners area and ShipRock. The bird is just a great bonus here.

The bird in the image is too small to be a feature, but too big to be ignored.

I'd have preferred this without the bird in shot.
