What it may really have looked like as a billboard:

Return for comment. Beautifull light and sillouettes and the bird works in perfectly. Maybe would have been a little better if there was a bit more foreground to include the rest of the boat.

The foreground is a bit busy but besides that it is a great photo. Love the warm orange tone and profile.

Nicely shot and composed! Makes me wonder though, are billboards an effective way of advertising for a tourist site? At 65 miles an hour are people considering going to Venice, Italy as opposed to Miami Beach?

ok, i am voting this challenge in 2 passes. in this pass, you will get a partial comment and a score. then i will come back to comment again. if you have any problem whatsoever with this comment, pm me and let me know. otherwise, take it with a grain of salt...i'm not trying to be a know-it-all, i'm just explaining where i'm coming from in voting this challenge. and, if this comment is NOT helpful (of if you think i'm full of $#!+), don't mark it helpful.

billboards are a science unto themselves. a lot of research has gone into determining just how much information a person can digest and retain in specific time spans. they use this information to develop formulas for determining the number of words and letters to use on billboards, as well as their sizes. they also determine the size and number of visual elements to include.

the graphics/photograph on a billboard are designed to get the point across in a moment. on the road, a driver will have less time with a billboard than a voter will give your image. this is a key element in the challenge: composing a shot that will get its point across quickly and succintly. along those lines, a strong composition will probably have few details and make strong use of negative space.

That's beautiful. I wish the boat at the bottom wasn't cropped off though. Maybe it's intact in the non-billboard sized original?

Not entirely convinced I see this as a billboard advertisement, but it's a lovely photo nonetheless.

I like the bird very much. It adds to the image, and this would made a nice poster or a magazine shot. However, nobody would see it on a billboard, and the rest would have been just a blurry dark photo for people driving by. Great photo, but not fitting the topic 100%.

Just WOW ! This has everything right going for it. The rich orange with the black. The building shapes are just beautiful. Even the bird showed up ! Awesome ! 10 +
