Just got back from a trip to Amsterdam - this photo perhaps isn't the most romatic representation of the city! However, there were a lot of bikes (it was a mission to cross the road) and a lot of graffiti, I liked the way the two looked together in this shot.

Comments etc welcome as usual Smile

My kind of shot! The pink graffiti provides contrast and lifts the image, super tones and subtle colour. there is something very photogenic in the drabness of the scene. Well spotted and captured.

It is never the posh bits that make the best images Wink The bike and the pipe on the rhs puts in some balanced asymmerty. Like it lots

Interesting image, lots to look at, and good to see un-romanticised images.

this shot has a lot of character to it and you should be applauded for finding something a little different to record from the city.

Like the graffiti on the walls, it almost looks like a backdrop used on stage.

Sad mixture of the grandure of old and the new culture of graffiti (blimely I sound like I'm about 90!!! - sound familiar!!

Seriously really fab shot. Like the composition - lighting spot on.
