    Dick: Not sure what you mean by straightening the shot. I was standing on a downslope and thought I had the subject as level as possible. And yes, it was an overcast day. Until I get more proficient at PP I couldn't realistically get the colors more vibrant, I think that's what you meant.

Laree: This is a 'sculpture' park on the outskirts of St. Louis, MO. The red monstrosity is a permanent fixture, probably 20+ feet in height. There are many such constructs throughout the park, each interesting in its own way. The Homer billboard is temporary for a few months. It's comprised of either 4 or 6 full panels of plywood covered by the artists rendition of the TV 'star'.

johnimage: Thanks for the compliment. And yes, the sky was grey. Now the area is under 3 or 4 inches of snow!! Maybe the shot would be more effective like that, eh?

Thanks to all of you for stopping to comment.

    I really like the idea. I, personally, would straighten it and adjust the levels to give it a little more 'pop'. It looks as though the photo was taken on a cloudy day which, if not accounted for, plays against you.

    Too funny! Where the heck is this? What an interesting frame you've found here!

    Cleaver composition and good catch. Too bad the sky was gray.
