Thank you all for your comments. Yes, this is a real street name and it's only a few miles from my work. I had tried out a few other concepts for this challenge, but with out anything I wanted to submit. I shot this the a few hours before the deadline on my way home from work (yeah we're really busy, so I was working that Sunday).

I forgot to bring my remote trigger for the camera so I did a lot of running with the camera on the 10sec delay, but the sweat is actually from a bottle of water. I had a flash on the ground to my right and another on under the hood with the late afternoon sun on the left.

Thank you all for the votes and the great comments.

Brilliant set up and the two flashes that you mentioned are doing the trick! Specially the one under the hood is adding a lot!

Terrific story - made the image. Is here really a Mechanical Dr? Looks to me as if you did a great job of printing and bringing just the right sign with you. Very clever idea and the perfect location as it looks to be in the middle of nowhere. Congratulations on the Red.

Great job! I called a top 5 finish for this one. I really like what you did with the processing, I think it made a great image out of some difficult lighting. The story is what really sells it though.

The set up seems so overly obvious but so well executed as well. voted earlier

Very creative. Not the most scenic of corners, but the "story" makes up for the lack of beauty.

Excellent set up and tones. Love the sign. Wish the vignette wasn't so heavy, and the glow/blur. Still, I'll bet this will do very well.

Very very nice. Lovely processing. Good to stop at Mechanical Dr. The sweat on your shirt delivers the time factor in the image. Fantastic composition.
