a picture from an old gas station that closed down long ago. for some reason the sign is still there and the prices were never taken down. the first time I passed it when I moved here I almost gave my wife whiplash I braked so hard. taken from a moving car.

just croped and adjusted levels and the brightness/cntrast.

given gas prices, this subject could have a lot of potential, but not the way you've shot it. a different perspective/composition could have made this a lot more interesting.

Heh! Might be even more effective if the gas station itself was shown in the photo, too.

Yeah, maybe when they discover that's the price per liter!

Focus on the sign seems a bit soft; not sure if this needs stronger focus or just sharpening.

Too bad because this is the way is should be. I think it would have been helpful to have date reference, etc.

Must be sold by the liter...
A little sharpening could make the sign crisp.

Tell me you submitted this to your local paper! I believe that you'd have made a few bucks. Not an overly interesting image, but it does well in today's news. 8.
