BMW Balance

By ellavr
Just a bit of fun. I was thinking of putting it in the Balance comp, but not a good enough shot.

When I took the shot I was trying to show the weirdness of a boat in the middle of the city, right next to a road, I only noticed the overbalanced BMW sort of bike afterwards.

Thanks to everyone who has commented on my images and who sent kind wishes. I would like to say that my friend is awake again and I will be able to see her tomorrow!! :o)

Great shot, honey. I missed this one, but for any serious biker to see a BMW C1 lying on it's side has to raise a smile! It's a question of gravity!!!

Well done.

I like this one and the angle you have taken it from,it does look as if the boat is on the roadside.The inclusion of the bikes works well. I like the comp. Well done. Click.

Well spotted - on both fronts! Image works well, tho' be tempted to crop the bottom up to anchor (that'll learn yer for suggesting crops!). Maybe too much foliage?

Glad that things are looking up

Thanks Eddie and Lee.

Mike - naughty - might be other bike riders reading!! :o)

Thanks Pete and Mary, for your comments and wishes.

Thanks Rob, sorry for the chairs!! :o)

Eric, Trudi and Jim - thanks as always aprreciated.

Mark - I tried this crop many ways and wanted to keep some water in and balance it with the trees, though in fact the water is so minimal not to matter, maybe you are right!! :o) Thanks for your comments and your thoughts.

Thank you Pam.

Thanks Mavis, for your comment and for your concern for my lovely friend, I hope that your sister is well.

Jill, thanks, Mike is keen to dive with great whites!! Me not so much, but I am trying to wangle an 'out of UK' slant to my PhD studies, looking at nursing education in various parts of the world, so here's hoping!!

A great composed shot, I think you've got what you were trying to achieve *click*
