I take on board the many encouraging comments I received on my road sign picture, 56031.jpg
I have cropped and reworked a similar shot taken on the same day and would ask , is this an improvement? 57368.jpg
In answer to the suggestion that I change to B/W I tried but couldn't seem to get the right shot. My tials are below,

I would appreciate suggestions/critique
Thanks guys, I was very pleased overall with my place in the challenge.

i think the b&w and the tighter cropping is a big improvement! maybe if you also try to position the sign slighty lower than the middle of the frame (rule of thirds) and clone out the powerline it will be another notch better!

I like the power line, I find it draws me back into the sign/picture. The twig/long blade of grass would have looked better if you broke it off instead of cropping it out but none the less an interesting shot. Better B&W.

Thanks for your comments,
The problem I had in the b/w ones was getting the contrast correct,which is why I opted for the colour one,
