I thought this sign was the most interesting that I had seen during this week. When the sky was a perfect blue - I went out and grabbed the shot. A bit of irony. Very little post shot editing. Adjusted curves, sharpened, cropped, and applied a thin border. I love my new camera!

Great use of complimentary colours. Nice sharpness. It has almost abstract feeling. The vertical format for this image is perfect. Well done.

Greta composition, minimalistic yet ironic and funny.

Good Color and perspective. The bottom background is a bit distracting, but I realize that can't always be helped :)

Great colors and composition, maybe more of the orange would be nice, but still, very nice

I like this photo, but it would have been better without that orange in the background. If the day was a little cloudy it would have been more interesting.

Perspective and color make this photograph. Nicely done.

I LOVE this one, the color, the simplicity of the composition and relative space. It took your innovative eye to get the viewer to interpret this sign as 'up the pole' where as a direct point of view wouldn't have been interesting at all. Great job

Oh, good perspective shot, humerous sign (in context: I'd climb the pole too if a tidal wave was coming) plus the nice orange background to add a complimentary color. Has it all! 10

Humm, up this pole to badroom... Nice shoot, ironic and funny. great colors too. These red box on background is the only thing that no need to be there.

haha, cute. Only comment is that an exactly square on shot would have been slightly better.

Maybe that's in case of flood. lol Great colors and focus.

Shame about the building in the background. Good image though.

Cool perspective.

if the red building wasnt there, it would be better, maybe crop off the bottom sign?

Would be nice if there were more negative space on the left.

Hilareous!!!! I love it! Could just imagine paniking people climbing this pole.
