Greetings from the Critique Club

Composition
The speed limit sign provides a dramatic touch to a beautiful sunset sky! You have caught wonderful tones . Well done! Exposure
Good sharp focus where needed!
Sugggestions for improvement
I feel that a little more space at the edge of the sign would have balanced the image better but you would have to be careful then not to have the jet flying right out of the other edge.

Great job. This photo did well but I thought it would place higher.

I think that this would have been a fabulous photo without the plane. I know it "makes" the title, but the beautiful sky, and the whiteness of the sign.... wow.

the sky looks like a watercolor. Like how the sign is old and dirty, this is really neat, great idea.

Nice capture. i like how the sign is really bright (used fill flash?). Great timing too. Jacko. 9

This has quite a bit of WOW factor for me! The speed limit sign is dramatically white, even though it's dirty (impressive!). The sunset sky has wonderful tones from light blue to azure, very nice. The sillhouetted jet is a great touch (we want them to go fast! joke) Score upgrade from 8 to 9 (wow factor again!) Swash

the right of the sign is a little too close to the edge of the photo, but an excellent photo. 10

nicely done, like the interpretation and the juxtaposition of plane and road sign

very nice composition.
01/23/2003 12:12:34 PM
I like the details in the sign, and the juxtaposition (sp?)... cool shot!
01/23/2003 06:00:21 AM
Now this is brilliant. Excellent capture.

I love the mood of this photo. It looks like you maybe used a flash to light the sign - either way the effect is great, it really draws your attention by being much brighter than anything else. The texture of the sign really adds interest as well. If I changed anything it would be to extend the right edge just slightly - the sign feels a little to close for my liking.

neat idea. the quality on the sign is good as it gets

I like this shot a lot. The high contrast between the dark sky and the flash hitting the sign talks to me. It makes the photo that much more dramatic. 8

GReat shot and use of irony. I love how those clouds frame that plane and the wonderful complimentary color scheme of nature! 8

Very cool......very interesting shot...it's got clout.

That's a pretty good shot. The colors are nice and sign is really cool looking with the gunk dripping down it. Did you try a B&W? That might have been nice also. 8.

Good composition and i like how the sign stands out as the main object in the picture, evebn though the picture is clearly about the plane braking the speed limit. Good job!!!

At first I thought, how the heck did they do this! But then I noticed the landing gear is out on the plane! AHA! gotcha. Now I understand better how this image was taken. I love the clouds, it reminds me of my favorite picture from last week in the landscape challenge.. anyway.. on to this photo! The sky is superb, and so is the outline on the dark plane. The sign is a little bit too bright, maybe overexposed. A clever shot! 9!!! -Annida

I really liked the deep colours in this one.

This one should do very well in the challenge. Composition is good the clouds seem as if they are parting for the plane. Good capture. Good luck.

very nice. many of the sign photos come out with the sign darker than the background. you did a great job of having the sign stand out and still constructing a dramatic composition. would increased saturation have brought out the blue a little more?

Great contrast between foreground and background.

Well done. I love the sky and like how the plane is silhouetted (sp?)
