Amazing how locks such as these have become so popular in so many cities around Europe, I think it conveys some of the character and emotion of their citizens. I like the depth of field here that keeps the focus (literally) on the foreground interest. Nice concept to merge the two subjects however presented with this image. Great, soft lighting also gives a touch of appeal as well. Thanks for posting, have a great day.

A new phenomenon the last years, fence with a lot locks, I think that sometimes the love not longer is than the locks to the fence!
Nice composition good presentation too.

those locks have become a trend these days, I think I saw some alredy appear in my home town:)
Great shot, I like that red is the prevailing color among the locks and it goes perfectly with the blurred red train in the background. The other colors bring in lovely spotty accents.
Nice note too.
Thanks and cheers

I'm not sure if its true or not, but i've never seen these 'love' bridges here in Canada, or in the US, perhaps its just a European thing? who knows.
its interesting to see that most of the locks are the exact same size and configuration...ive seen many of these in other european countries and there are always various large and small ones.
colorful presentation, and great subject.
i like it

This lover locks is everywhere in the world. While it has a romantic notion, but I find it rather environmental unfriendly and it is quiet meaningless. How many of these couple are still together? It make a really cool gaphic and good photography subject though, I love all the various colors. The train give good strong color as a nice background.

This is great picture where red dominates, we can now view clearly the many 'love locks' in variety of rich colours by concerntrating this particular subject matter close up and superbly backed by softness of passing train. The side lighting is warm and subtle, sharp and great contrast as well. Fine shot, Congrats
