Nice work, good image idea, and good execution. One minor quible, the signs would gradually go out of focus as they recede down the road. This could be done by putting all signs on one layer, apply gaussian blur, and graduated layer mask, from right to left. Love the bullet holes.

This is good work, but I have to take issue with Gary here. Because there is a large field of view on the background picture, there is no blurring as you look to the back of the shot. Therefore the signs wouldn't go out of focus, but they would fade a little; become a little less sharp. perhaps lower the contrast and increase the brightness a little. I have posted an example for you to see. I have added some textures to the second a third sign (for fun), a bit of gradient overlay and a little shadow. It's not perfect, but it does show what can be done.

It's better to burn out than fade away!
