    Congrats on a good finish. I really like this. The textures, both in the brushes and the supporting tray are wonderful. My son-in-law is a sign painter/mural painter/artist. I'm sure he would find this interesting.

    Congrats John - I too made the connection with sign painting. Now I know what you are using to fix those electronic components on the giant LEDs :-) Note to Anthony - the problem with a vertical presentation is that many voters will not view the whole image. Interesting tip about the vertical lines though.

    Congratulations John!! The extra info you gave just confirmed that it was you... not many people will have access to old sign writers brushes :)

Something I tried during the voting; try rotating your image 90 degrees (preferably with the bristles pointing up), the vertical lines have quite an impact when viewing in portrait as opposed to horizontal. Still love this image!

    Almost looks like a painting. Love the pp. You've brought an otherwise boring picture to life. Well done.

    Not sure whether vintage or just old but beautifully exposed and just a wonderful image.

    Great collection you have there, and excellent processing.

    An interesting and unusual choice for the challenge. The arrangement of the brushes is really effective. What makes it so, is your decision to angle the brush that's second from the bottom. Brilliant!

I also like the processing and feel it's well suited to the subject matter. Really like the resultant colors and the fact you didn't go overboard with the structure enhancement. One of my favorites.

    when i saw the thumbnail I thought they were daggers hence the title.
some indication of sign writing in the back ground may have lifted the picture higher up the rankings
