A beautiful and cold autumn afternoon in Canberra.
Driving along the road I was amazed with the autumn colours and the beautifull light from the late afternoon sun coming through the leaves; the keep left sign at the middle of the road was nicely located in one of the bright spots.
I increased the saturation and sharpness of the whole image.

the sign & the perspective down the street are dominating this shot

Good dappling and nice composition.

I'm not sure I get it. It's an ordinary scene not enhanced by the dappled light. A good study maybe, but it doesn't hold up well on its own.

Would have liked to see more saturation in the trees and sky. I'll try to keep right for the rating, despite the sign!

Sign looks a bit fuzzy nice line though. I love sign pictures though.

I like te clever use of the environment, having the sign lead the eye to the lighting. Could have stronger shadows with some selective burning.

I hope it's not the direction for scores? Seriously: I like warm tones here. The sign makes the story. The viewer has to ask the question: "Why?" and try to answer it. I like such pictures a lot.

I like the street, but the sign puts me off for some reason.
