    I'm surprised the reflective material on the stop sign isn't brighter.

    if there is hardly any light to reflect, then it won't be bright at all.

    Besides this, sorry to say, but for me this images does not do much. I am having trouble with the composition which appears odd to me. I often like centred images, but at least for me it does not work with this one. Maybe if the stop sign was more to the right, there was less sky and less of the foreground, it could be intense, but the way it is now .... not for me.

    But he flashed it. I've seen lots of distant road signs show up way too bright as a result of that.

    yes, but the angle the flash would hit the sign will not give much reflection back in the direction of the camera.

    It doesn't appear like the flash fired...the EXIF says no flash.
