    i'm noticing bicycles popping up in recent pictures. they are well suited to photography: shiny metal bits, diagonal lines, circles, etc. what's not great is bike locks, which often tend to spoil things.

    please share some.

    here is a little set i've knocked together:

    Anyone that has been in a camera club will know the term 'judge bait'. I've been around the camera club scene long enough to not care what judges say about my photos, so, some 14 years ago (!!!) I entered this images entitled "The Half Bicycle' taken in Cuba!

    i think this would have worked better the other way around: panning the shot -- which, of course, i have never been able to do successfully ;-)

    +1 - fully agree. It conveys the scene and motion far more effectively than a conventional pan would do.
