Bike Of Orange.


Photo Information
To be quite honest I'm amazed that this shot was recently accepted on to PPG - certainly not one of the 'pretty' shots that I normally have accepted.
Shot in the Dutch city of Maastricht a couple of years ago.
K20D/Tamron 28-300mm
Can I take this opportunity to wish you all a happy new year. It would be nice if we could arrange a 'meet-up' at September's Photokina in Cologne. I'll give that some further thought.

I'm not amazed this is a cracking shot and a very good example of refrained but highly efective colour popping. Best wishes to you for the new year Paul and may I thank you for taking the time to look and comment on my photos over the last year, cheers, Jim

That says it all for me too.
Best Regards, Larry.

Cracking photo Paul. A judicial bit of colour popping which works really well.


Gelukkig nieuwjaar en misschien tot Photokina .

I'm not surprised either Paul, this is an exceptionally good shot and the processing enhances it.

At first sight I knew that it is yours. You had also a similar photo here.
Nice composition with the repetitive shapes. The arrangement of the wheels resembles to the Olympic logo. I also like the good use of the colours-pop effect.

And for me, Paul! I also like the suggestion about Cologne.

Many thanks for your comments gentlemen - I'm really surprised that the photo draws such a positive reaction.
We'll discuss Cologne further sometime Nezih?
