Love the Route 66 metaphore! The photo not so much.

Very cool process and framing - one of my 10s.

nice shot, very visually appealing...
however, isn't this a basic editing contest?

It looks like the saturation was removed from the main layer minus the sign, with the sky in sepia...good luck though

If the sign were faded out as much as the rest of the picture this would be perfect.

nice title :)

I like the composition and the scene, but I think this would have been a much stronger photo in black and white or color. The choice of hues here is somewhat disturbing and distracting. 6.

very well composed, but the color tretment doesn't fit the impressing scenery, overall too dull and grey

A very nice desolation desert scene, but truly not a rural landscape.
