Nice of you to think of us international folks too David :-)

I should of figured this was you. Great job. This was one of my favorites along with the deer picture. Congrats on the ribbon.

Thanks all. I really wanted the DO NOT ENTER sign to be larger and out of focus--and perhaps only a corner of it visible, and the River Heights Welcomes You sign to be more distant. This would have added some drama and interest, though it would have been more subtle--especially for international folks who don't know what a DO NOT ENTER sign in the U.S. looks like. But the signs were too close to each other, and I could not get a radical depth of field because of other various obstacles that you can't see: a river, a pole, some trees, etc. But I was pleased that I was able to communicate the irony anyway. Thanks again.

Funny!!! Now, it would be even more hillarious to take a pic of someone 'scaling' the wall. Congrats!

Lol, one of my favorites so far. I like the overall clarity of the image, but I think more depth of field would make the sign sharper. It seems a tad blurry and a little underexposed to me - as the "punch line" to the image, I just think it should stand out more. Great job -10-
