Last minute entry. I know this wont do well do to size, unreadability with size, how busy it is, etc. I think I might even get last place. But, hey, at least I can say I participated. And at least I have the ability to understand why this isn't a great photo.

Levels, Brightness, Contrast, a little USM

I like the way that the sign really stands out, but I find it a little soft.

A tighter crop on this sign would do your entry more justice.

I really like the brightness of the road sign against the rather dull background. It does seem to me that there might be too much background for this small sign. I wonder what it would look like if you concentrated on the sign and the torn up road. But maybe that angle wasn't possible. Good luck.

Nice play with words. The sky looks strange because of the way you cropped it with the mountains. You should have cropped away all of the white area. 6.

Too much contrast. Looks like a snapshot from a moving car because of the blur. Good luck with this challenge.

There is too much in this picture, you should have zoomed in more on the subject. The topic of the challenge is lost in the mountain view and other background which do nothing for the photo. Keep shooting

Nice scene, not about the theme, but a nice shot anyway

A little distant, a closer viewpoint would have made the scene more dramatic, my opinion of course.
