    I still can't believe that I missed this months competition, anyway I won't let that happen again. My problem was that I just couldn't get the file-size small enough. Like-wise I had also throuble with the image size which just lost the sign-text at 800x600 or less....

    I think this must be my limited computer skills, could anyone be bothered to take a look at the entry I had selected and explain to me how can reduce the file-size and image-size whilst retaining the impact and readability of the sign....

    BTW In that link you can also see my alternative I just selected to get an entry in...But I was too late...

    Seany you are a star!!!!!

    Until now I only was able to put a link in....Now I know the way to embed the picture...

    And this works on the competition pages as well? Great...

    I like that shot as well! Made specifically for this months competition on my holiday in Lago di Garda two weeks ago...It was tricky for me and I learned a new technique to get both front, middle and back in focus whilst being so closeup to the sign....I tried with PS to 'lift' the text a little, but whatever I tried made it look too artificial whilst it is a really old sign...I tried the layer multiplication trick which made it all to dark...I tried copying just the sign to a new layer, invert and then erase all that is not text but it was too gimmicky....Have you got any other ideas?
