This shot has been taken at La Rambla in Barcelona. This beautiful sculpture is located at the left side of the entrance of the Palau de la Virreina which is a great example of baroque architecture built in 1777. Today the Palau de la Virreina is partially open to the public for cultural events and art exhibitions under the name "La Virreina Centre de la Imatge."

Original composition! Good creative idea and excellent realization, perfect sharpness. I was here, but I don't remember the same place.
Happy New year and all the best wishes,

this is a simple and yet very clever composition. The array of bircyles, including the colorful "runt" at the base of a tall wall makes an eye catching composition. Las Ramblas is one of my favorite parts of Barcelona, indeed of Spain, and the Mediterranean Coast.
Happy New Year,

A well constructed image making this interesting juxtaposition between the bicycles and the niched shrine. Nicely presented with good light, colours and sharpness.

A really unique view to take in the statue over the bicycles like this, and it works perfectly well. The central framing works brilliantly, and I love hte texture in the brickwork!
All the best

a wonderful mixture of old and new elements in this very arty composition. Love the contrast of the precision of the wall against the asymmetry of the bicycles. It works perfectly. Excellent imagery!
Enjoy the last weekend of 2012 - Brian.

Je me demande si vous avez changé de prénom récemment. J'aime comment ces bicyclettes pointent vers le mur et la statue mise en valeur par le cadrage vertical.

Hello, a very captivating composition especially in a vertical format. Just the right amount of color to be presentable rather than bland.
Good clarity and dof.
So well done,

splendido scorcio di Barcellona, riesci sempre a cogliere angoli originali, con buon occhio e gusto nella composizione.

Hi Gosia ( vous avez changée de prénom ?)
Intéressante composition de la statue avec une série de vélo, bon format et excellent rendu des détails et de la lumière

it's great that you noticed this scene while you were in a large and busy area and decided to take a picture of it. The composition is wonderful, the long vertical frame accentuates the sense of height and makes the association between the higher and the lower part of the frame very intriguing. There's also superb depth and sharpness, the soft light and subdued colours create a moody atmosphere and the minimal composition invites us to invent a context. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, I wish you a great 2013 full of Love, Health and Joy!

A beautiful image in excellent composition and I like the contrast in colours and shapes. Well done and best wishes.

How lucky to be able to see this beautiful historic sculpture and the architecture, let alone be able to take a superb image such as this! Love the simple composition and the space you've given to this. Detail is excellent and placement in the frame the colour popped bike grabs the attention and leads and I'm enjoying this inclusion to 'ground' the shot and make the presence seems so fleeting and transient. It does not need to be dramatic to impress, vividness of the stone works, colours and the simple composition all blend beautifully. This is so well seen and refreshing to look, Congrats.

I see that you changed your name now on the Profile Page :) But still most people call you Malgorzata :)
There is something really charming and innocent about this one, amazing how the addition of the bikes can do that.
excellent details, and a fine subject to photograph.

Lovely and charming picture with special regards to the vertical format, soft light & colors and minimalist composition!
TFS - congrats,

Original toma contrastando el color de las bicicletas con el de la imagen de piedra que esta vigilando las mismas.
Un cordial saludo:

Interesuj±ce i ciekawe. Podoba mi siê to ujêcie, takie jakby rowery nale¿±ce do dusz ludzkich, które s± niewidoczne na zdjêciu. Pozdrawiam - Adrian
