Thought this was an interesting shot. I deliberately wanted the background out of focus so that the viewer was left wondering what the danger was - hence the title.

One of my first shots with the Canon EOS 350D, taken at ISO 400, f5.0, 1/10 sec, centre-weighted metering.

Processed with a colorised saturation layer to change the overall tone and then the 'Danger' sign was brought back through the mask to emphasise it.

Nice idea Mike, would like to see the red a little brighter and the whole post a little sharper.

I wondered about the red too. I did try it a bit brighter but could maybe have spent more time trying to get it just right. I'm learning CS3 at the same time as learning to use my camera so it could be a slow road.

I agree totally about the post Carl. Unfortunately the lack of sharpness is due in part to lack of tripod - we didn't take it with us. On the RAW file you can actually see two top edges to the sign. Lesson learned Smile

ooh i like this, good composition. I do agree with the red needing a bit more pazzaz and the fact that the post is a little soft too.
