Photographer's Note

Almost every country that has traffic has stop signs, and they are almost always octagonal. When you get to this stop sign, turn left; my house is the third one on the right!

PP: I selected the sky and sign on different layers. I used AutoColor for the sky, which really increased the contrast and saturation, so I decreased saturation by 20%. I cloned a few flaws in the stop sign, then used Unsharp Mask at a very high pixel radius (about 200!), but a very low percentage (about 20%), which made the sign nice and vivid. Cropped and sharpened.

STOP! And enjoy the world around you! It's a beautiful day!
