I liked this sign on a popular local restaurant. I've been past it dozens of times, but never looked up carefully until I took this picture - I didn't realize it had an actual leaky canoe above the door!
These were all shot on a Nikon D3000, with varying focal lengths, at medium speeds, and f14, ISO200. I used to avoid editing photos at all, but now I adjust most of them a little, usually just adjusting the contrast, clarity and sharpness. I use Lightroom for that, and my cardinal rule is to try and keep the photo looking as close as possible to what I actually saw out there in the real world. The bottom photo I did adjust a lot, in an attempt to show up some of the contrasting texture on the sculpture. Sometimes I find that reducing the exposure but increasing the fill light helps do this.
