Great that you had this biker with the yellow jersey to make a strong color contrast with the blue sky
Well placed in the compo, just before passing in front of the umbrellas
To me, a bit of magenta cast on the image, especially visible in the sky
have a nice evening, best regards

Beautiful capture of this gracious artwork. The cyclist is a great focal point that adds a lovely touch of colour to the blue and brown scene. A well thought composition.

This is a fine composition where many elements are very nicely combined to make this photo a great success. The monument, or installation, has a great and original beauty, and although none of the people standing on the quay seems to be actually watching it, the presence of a lot of people shows that this is a work of art well fitting the public view. The young man in the bright shirt nonchalantly going into the view on his bicycle makes a great contribution to the composition without knowing it.

Even though the umbrellas are made in the blue colour and the contrast against the sky is not optimal, this is a great photo, much thanks to the splash of yellow added by the biker. Imagine if the umbrellas was red, for instance. Fine vertical presentation. Great job!
Thanks. Have a nice week.
Best regards, Erling

C'est une superbe photo, avec de très belles couleurs gaies et dynamiques.
Les parapluies créent un graphisme agréables.

the yellow shirt makes the picture so attractive, contrasting deeply with the blue sea and sky, and equilibrating the umbrellas.
have a good night

Romano46 (14496) 2013-12-09 11:57
le tue foto più belle hanno sempre come soggetto il lungomare e spesso c'è la presenza dei ciclisti.
In questa c'è qualcosa di più: una straordinaria rappresentazione fatta con gli ombrelli che disegna nell'aria una forma assai elegante che domina nettamente la scena ed arricchisce piacevolmente la già bella composizione.
Ciao e buona serata
willperrett (4847) 2013-12-09 13:02
What an unusual and delightful artwork. You've captured it very well: I particularly like the cyclist and pedestrians populating the frame. I might have cropped a little tighter to avoid the area of blank concrete at the bottom.
nikkitta (10418) 2013-12-09 13:45
Like this art work, suits well near the sea, reflecting both sea and skyand why not, long away mountains also
Good to add life with the in yelllow ciclist
Have a good week, congrats
carlo62 (22341) 2013-12-09 15:10
l'installazione è originale e la tua foto ce la mostra molto bene.
Hai composto l'immagine perfettamente, l'inserimento dell'uomo in bici è essenziale per colpire l'attenzione con il suoi colori.

Five year ago was in Knokke-Zout Belgium also at the beach almost the same art work to see.
Nice combination with the biker this everything against a blue sky
You chose a very well angle this care for depth and perspective.
A nice composition, lovely colours, sharpness makes everything nice.
Very well done, TFS.
snunney (75072) 2013-12-10 5:32
A very graphical image with the giant umbrellas nicely counterbalanced by the man on the bicycle in his hi-vis jacket. The superb blue sky makes a great backdrop, accentuating the graphical elements. Excellent colours and sharpness.
Sergiom (48970) 2013-12-10 5:42
J'aime beaucoup cette composition. Les parapluies superposés sont du plus bel effet dans ce très beau ciel. Le cycliste semble s'être arrêté pour nous présenter lew spectacle sur les quais.
mesutilgim (75550) 2013-12-10 12:17

A very interesting and attractive art project. Your picture shows this work in a very good way, together with a very pleasant view of the daily life around. The people here add both colours and life.
Cricri (95391) 2013-12-11 11:26
Original et oui très poétique, bien présenter sous le fond bleu, très intéresser par beaucoup de personnes, le cycliste avec sa veste fluo attire aussi le regard, belle présentation
mirosu (10186) 2013-12-13 16:59
Excellent point of view and composition! The umbrella arrangement and lines are awesome, the light and colors are also great. The people around add nice life to the scene. Well done. Wish you a very nice weekend.
adramad (32881) 2013-12-14 17:00
A magnificent monument, captured in a nice POV including people giving a vital touch, the rider adds charm to the image.
A beautiful day giving magnificent colors.
Very good both brightness and sharpness.
Enjoy the weekend.

Geia sou Costantino
Of course, this is an outstanding view of unbrellas for giant people and I wish I could see those over a threatening sky with lot of people getting shelter under the array!
Thanks for showing this artistic extravaganza!
ourania (21432) 2013-12-16 12:08
πολύ όμορφη σκηνή, όχι μόνο για την παρουσίαση του θαυμάσιου έργου με φόντο τα μπλε χρώματα μιας καθαρής χειμωνιάτικης μέρας, αλλά και για την απόδοση της χαλαρής και ευχάριστης ατμόσφαιρας που χαίρονται οι περαστικοί. Μου αρέσει πάρα πολύ η είσοδος του ποδηλάτη στο κάδρο, εξισορροπεί τη σύνθεση, προσφέρει κίνηση και ελκυστικό χρώμα, προσθέτει ένα ακόμα αγαπημένο θέμα στο κάδρο, μετά τις ομπρέλες, τη θάλασσα και τα πλοία. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
Να είσαι καλά, καλό σου βράδυ,
Didi (52429) 2013-12-17 11:13

ikeharel (46976) 2013-12-19 7:33
Fabulous scenery with the unique umbrelas statue.
Exquisite clear shot, blue dominating seafront location, and well taken the moment when a biker wearing yellow enter the area, superbly gave extra contrast on.
adores (32170) 2013-12-20 15:43
I've seen this installation many times on photos. You got a good composition here with the biker with the yellow coat. He's very well placed and he's eye catching. A good composition!

Unusual and attractive waterfront architecture including the biker for scale. I envision large jellyfish floating in the sky with the beautiful ocean backdrop.
jmdias (49671) 2014-01-10 4:59
another interesting version of this curious sculpture, so famous yet. I liked the contrast of the colors and the presence of personages well positioned. TFS.,
