Great shot and interesting perspective. The arrow seems to dominate this public space empty of any other more pleasing designs.

fascinating this dof, you have the feeling that you can go straight ahead in this photo although the arrow shows in a different direction!

This is great, Bill...I really like how you have a fair amount of space between the arrow here, and the walker further up...this gives the eye and mind a chance to see the arrow, look up the road, and then AH see that person walking againct the "implied directional directions." So even though this is a straight view, it really builds drama and makes the eye move around ....and the story is so well stated...Beautiful job here, sir!

Some strong elements coming together very nicely. The human form is a nice touch, and that wear and tear of the arrow pointing straight at the viewer.
