Today it was the best possible light for photography.
Took a lot of great images.
This bike is in front of a school. Today it is Sunday so it probably has been there at least for two days...
The house in the background is a sports hall.

Wow, great beauty.
I loved the snow-cycle and the snow-tree, and the work of the master that brings them together in the same frame!!
Well done & Best Regards,

beau premier plan, avec le bâtiment qui par sa couleur tranche la blancheur de la neige.

Yes, the light is back. Not every day yet, but the next few days look very promissing here as well.
Your compo symbolizes just that! It shows powerfull colours and contrast but remains a winter photograph with two a symbolic elements. The bright frozen tree in front of the dark wall looks great and the half coverd bicycle promises there are warmer days to come. Very well seen and done. TFS

Wonderful composition with lovely snowly bicycle in the foreground, beautiful snowly tree in the middleground and interesting red building in thebackground. Excellent presentation with perfect perspective to get strong sense of depth, good light management to get sharpness and clarity, and well vertical framing for look at.
Have a good winter season

this is one of the kind of photos which I like very much! it looks so .... refreshing (if I may use this word) :)
Bright - but warm - sunshine, a bike wearing a "snowy coat" (not to get cold, I presume? :)), a very good vertical composition showing enough of background to create a complete picture of a sunny frosty day :)
warm greetings from very frosty and sunny Moscow,

I like very much the snowy bicycle a,d the contrast between the white tree and the house behind it.The luminosity and the colors are superb.

You have presented a very romantic atmosphere with a great perspective. The vertical frame fits this scene perfectly. What I like most is the contrast of the white tree against the deep red sports hall building. I'm eager to see your other shots from this session too. Thanks for sharing. Greetings.

Deep red and blue of the shadows make a great contrast with pure white snow on sunshine. The tree looks just great, and snowy bike too. It seems that there's more of this kind of weather coming...

Too cold for cycling I think but the bike is a good inclusion because it creates interest in the foreground and an excellent composition. Here the sun is warm but we have a cold wind.
