I really like this picture! I think it has excellent composition, and I really like how some of the bushes are covering up part of the sign. It's like it has a industrial and nature contrast. Ya know, what I mean? I also really like how you didn't do any editing to it, and left it in it's original state. Keep up all of the excellent work!

this picture is okay- it's in focus and the composition is decent but that's about all. the angle of the sign bothers me, as does the fact that the top right corner is cut off. It looks good for no editing but you may want to play around with it a little because it lacks a wow factor.

I like how the letters are in focus and everything is around it a little blurry. They signs natural rust gives it the natures colors. I might have done if you maybe use a smaller apture and got everything in focus it may look a little better.

Im not such a big fan of this picture. The focus and the depth of field is alright, but the subject and colors are really bland. I do like how the sign is tilted though. it gives it some interest.

I think all that would have been needed to make this piece better would have been to just adjust the focus a bit. you might also want to paste some kind of a small branch into the top right of the piece though cause its lookin kind of bare up there. other than that, I like this shot. the sign's "filth" makes it fit in better and I really like how you can see the bushes fade off into the background. it creates a nice sence of space.

I love the juxtaposition of the vines and stuff covering up the sign, and am kinda surprised that there was no photoshop touch-up here. I kinda wish the sign said something that contradicted the vines, like "no vine zone." But good nonetheless

this picture has good concept, subject, composition, whatever. It has that, but it would look a lot better if it were a bit more in focus. Other than that, not bad.

I don’t know what it is about this picture and why I like it but there is something about it. It’s not something you would usually see. But I do like it.

I love the humor in this shot; these people care enough to put up a sign to keep you out, but not enough to perform even semi-regular maintenance on their property to keep it looking presentable. I love that you filled the entire frame, and that you got alot of greenery in the shot as well. Good job!

wow this is a cool picture. it is even cooler to think that you did little or no editing to it. i really like how you read that is says private drive no turnaround. its like a warning sign that has been covered up due to the bushes growing. i like the greens in the picture and how they contrast the white sign. I also like how you have this contrast between nature and kinda the material world. So this is a great picture. Keep up the good work.
