Went for a walk on an absolutely beautiful evening yesterday. I really liked this sign, but facing the sign was the opposite of the sunset. Here is the original photo. (Those are bugs, my sensor is clean I swear!)

Here is the sign from the backside. Obviously the sunset is nice, but the sign is backwards!

Here is the sky I am using for the replacement.

And the final product. What do you think, is this passable as real??

Well I would not have known had you posted without telling. At least on the web sized image.

I was wondering why you just don't flip it, but I think yours looks better.

LOL. Yea, flip it horizontally would have been my suggestion as well. At least you got to practice replacing the BG. The new background looks good at this resolution

I'm odd. I actually prefer the original unflipped sunset version with the sign viewed from the back. I think it is a more interesting/unusual view.

I agree with Dan. Forcing the viewer to stop and think for a few seconds is always a good thing.

Clone out the bugs and I actually like the way the warm sunset light plays on the black metal of the sign, against the dark blue of the sky in the very first image that you posted. Although of course that was not the point of the OP.

Nothing wrong with that! I agree that it is interesting from the backside.

For sure.

I do like this view as well, just wanted it with the sunset in the background!! I like that in the edited version, I was able to keep a little bit of detail in the sign, where as if I just flipped the original, it is just black.
