During a trip through the local tivoli yesterday just before a huge downpour, I spotted this sign which in full read "Sky Rider" I just captured the sky part against the darkening backdrop. I love the absurdity of it! Smile

I like the colours and the contrast against the sky. My only niggle is the colour of the sky in the bottom right corner as it almost looks as if it was added in separately. Just a coincidence that u managed to split the dark and light parts with the bottom of the sign.

Thanks all. Richard, I had hoped when framing that the sign would split the light and dark as you say but I couldn't be 100% sure as the sky was in a awfully big hurry!

That is incredibly sharp!,,,Amazing how you managed to get the shot so light and sharp,when it was so dark overhead!,,,What sort of settings where you using?,,,I could never manage a shot like that.....Ken
