Billboards

Everyone seemed to prefer the backs of billboards, so I kept that in mind while driving to Missoula this last weekend. What do you guys think?

I like your second one much more. It seems to fit with your idea of these sort of ugly subjects and beautiful landscapes in the background

I also appreciate the softer light in that image

I also like the second one better. You have two spots of sensor dust near the top of this one though.

The first one looks like the one you showed it in class (maybe it is) I also like the second one better. It is a beautiful landscape. I like the sky, specially the line that the clouds form. And I think you should keep the colors.

I agree with what they said below I love the second one the colors you captured are beautiful. The first image's foreground is to distracting, there also isn't enough background landscape. I think you could also explore images with a simple landscape that is predominantly in the foreground with the billboard further in the distance than what you've had thus far. Just some ideas for you.

I think the second one has a better composition but the light in it is a little dead. I like the light and sky in the first one better.

I think the top one can be saved with some work. The major problem for me is that the back of the sign is in heavy shadow. use screen mode on a background copy and then a layer mask to paint the rest of the image out.
