Let me start by saying this was a very unique take on the challenge. The challenge details state "Take a photograph where the subject relates to milk or milk products" and the lack of actual dairy products may have accounted for the relatively low score.

My immediate impression of the photo was that the sign posts are a bit overpowering and could have been avoided with a little tighter cropping on the sign. A few commenters mentioned the flat contrast which I tend to agree with, particularly in the lettering of the sign. The sign also seems to get a little lost in the busy background of trees and shrubbery. Perhaps a slightly different angle that does not include the trees (if possible) could help bring more attention to the sign itself. The power lines in the upper left corner of the image also tend to draw the eye away from the sign. This also could have also been avoided with a slightly different angle and/or cropping.

Personally I like the "out of the box" thinking that led to this image and overall I think it's a good photo that could be dramatically improved with a few minor adjustments.

I look forward to seeing more of your work and good luck in future challenges!

I liked this picture because there was no one else who did it.. But maybe if there was color it would have been better?..

Good photo yet it only has one word of dairy and that's. Maybe a little more color.

a wee bit overexposed on the lettering - good idea but just a rather ordinary shot.
