Really love the minimalism to this dramatic post. The black works so well....top marks in my books.

I echo the comments of the others. A great shot - well spotted. Would the shot have been better with less black below the cycle - as much black building as there is sky to balance the shot? Maybe but then it works well as it is.

author says:

Thanks Adam773.

The large swatch of the "black" building is meant to "highlight" and give complete prominence to the bicycle, and too much sky here would decrease the "drama" of a pedestal for the eye-catching bicycle "parked" on a rooftop.

In any case it was a grey uninteresting sky and also not a "sky photo"

author says:

BTW, is the bicycle photographed from the top or from the bottom?

Shift your eyes around and you can see different perspectives of the bike.

Having read your comments I went back to the photo to see if there was an illusion here and finally my eyes adjusted and yes, we could be looking down on the bike and not up....FANTASTIC. I love these kinds of shots that stir up my gray matter.

author says:

Thanks for taking the trouble.
