A nice POV to capture this perspective of the road from the side of the car.
I like the desaturated part of the picture while mainaining the sign with the camel on in color.
Nice creative composition with beautiful grey scales and the foggy atmosphere giving a magical ambient!
My best regards,

Je confonds toujours chameau et dromadaire, voilà qui m'aide à mémoriser le chameau... mais dans 10 minutes j'aurais encore oublié...HAHA !
Excellente desaturation partielle.
Une atmosphère où la vitesse et la poussière sont bien présentes.
J'aime le contraste entre la voiture arrêtée et celle qui est au loin en pleine vitesse.
La notion de danger est bien représentée ici.

Hello, Carol -
Very good eye to spot this one - the camel crossing sign is such an interesting and unusual sight, and your preserving of the red triangle around it is quite eye-catching. Your chose POV is wonderful, allowing us to look along the road's edge as it curves into the distance. The b&w compliments the rainy gloom of the setting. Well done.

Ha Carol ... this is a good one!
Before I read your note, I assumed that was dust behind the passing speeding car .. but now I know it's indeed a wet rainy day, and that isn't dust at all!!
So great on you for getting out in that weather, getting that great low perspective beside your car to get the camel crossing sign. Very good idea to desaturate all but the camel sign ... it really adds to the gloom and greyness and mood of the shot.
You're a brave man to drive in all these foreign countries .. I guess you just have to bite the bullet, and do it, right?
Have a great day Carol .. talk to you soon
