Challenge: Road Signs IV (Basic Editing III)
Camera: Canon EOS-20D
Location: Green / Hyde Streets, San Francisco, CA, USA

Aperture: f22

The red and green elevated lights belong to the cable car. Shot with a 70-200 f2.8 at f22. Taken across the street at 100mm. I used my Speedlite 420EX, handheld, to illuminate the sign. I tried to illuminate the cable car, to no avail. I could not get any images with the cable car illuminated. I was almost ready to pay him to stop...wish I did. Used PS for USM, slight contrast and slight saturation.

great shot, but the sign is not the focus here.

I like the trails from the car lights, but the sign is a little lost.

Love these kind of shots.

Little dark, but VERY cool. If you took a bunch more pics just experimenting, you probably could have exposed it a little better. Nice job though.

The catch lights are amazing...but they take away from your sign for the challenge. 5

The shape of the traffic is very appealing, although the roadsign hardly seems an important element in this photo

the lights made this picture much better but still nothing unique but good shot
