"P" Stands for Prison, It's not a parking sign, it's a Stop Sign. Sorry if the image wasn't simple enough and required anyone to think. I've never known a prison to be attractive. There is a gun tower, moat and razor wire in the picture. Maybe if I put some boobies in the picture next time, I'll get higher votes.

Yes, I am a sore loser.

I just don't get the huge "P" on the left HALF of the pic. I think there will be more than a few that feel this pic DNMC. I am not one of them. Good luck in the challenge!

I am not sure why the parking sign is so prominent in this shot - parking at jail? Also the water softens and makes this place more attractive, instead of fearsome... maybe black and white to take away all color and life from this shot would have had more of an impact, and a tighter crop on so that there is no down time trying to figure out what this shot is of.

I don't understand the role of the sign in this iamge.

Nice composition.

Sorry, but this doesn't meet the theme for me. Without the title there's nothing about it that says "education" to me. Composition and exposure aren't bad though.

Interesting idea. Cropped stop sign cuts the composition in two. Would be better if you backed up to avoid this, and the more obvious stop sign would help many other viewers "get it."
