Hello Jose

I like the trailing road leading away from the bike. The tones you have chosen creates a very artistic result. I like the POV overall. nice

Hi Jose,
a nice tight crop, the bike making a nice foreground to the city scene. Good choice of B&W presentation. May be you could have captured the full circle of the manhole cover to complement the wheel of the bike.

Hello Jose.

Such smooth tones, almost metalic of yester year. Nice theme addition Jose, I like also the frame style choice.

stv ;o))

Hello Jose, a good tight crop to emphasise the abandoned bike.The various shapes and textures are sharp and add lots of interest to the scene.
Good in b/w.
Tfs, regards Jean.

I like the perspective here and the good dof shows some interesting details along the street and textures in the paving. The bicycle is perfectly placed to attract the eye and lead us further back to the people and other daily life. B/w good choice for this. Nice addition to the theme.


Your close proximity to the bicycle fills the frame but your pov and composition captures many interesting details that are pin sharp. B&W adds nice atmosphere. Good entry too them

bonjour Jose
Abandoned for a long time? It seems to be yet usable.I see sometimes in Paris bicycles tied to a grate with a chain and of which wheels and saddle have been stolen ; they stay there week after week till the municipal services finally cut the chain...
An artistic POV and presentation
Bon dimanche

Hi Jose...nice old time feel to this shot...nice focus and exposure. Well done.
