    Somehow I missed this one when going through the shots (should do it more carefully). It's a great shot well seen and composed, and I'm glad it received it's worthy place even without my vote :)

    Congratulations well deserved. Still find the patterns so captivating

Oct 15, 2013

    Good work.Lots of repetition here. In my favorites

    I like the b&w treatment here that accentuates the abstract quality of all the frames and wheels. Nicely done.

Oct 14, 2013
    Very cool effect. It took a minute to realize that the bike frames were manipulated. Which is a good thing. The special effects supported the image rather than the other way round. B&W was very effective here.

Oct 13, 2013
    it would have a long job but as the figure spoils the pattern and holding a pistol takes the eye away from the lovely patterns. I would have tried to either clone out or blur the figure

Oct 12, 2013
    My favourite. What a wonderful mess! Are they bicycle wheels or what? beautiful lighting.

    johncomyn I think the blown highlights could have been avoided but the exposures were a challenge and the scene dynamic.

davep56 Thank you. Credit to the artist Ai Weiwei.

Michael Was unsure about the lens effect; pleased to know it worked for you.

elliott The PP is simple, just desaturate, add the lens effect filter in GIMP, and there you have it. The scene is in front of City Hall in Toronto, part of a street art exhibit showing the works here of Ai Weiwei. I'll post a bit more in outtakes after I am back. The fellow in the scene just pulled out a hand gun so his friend could take a cellphone grab. A little unsettling but it was over in an instant. (Generally carrying a handgun in public is illegal in Canada. Our guns laws are tighter and we avoid the carnage that comes with lax gun ownership laws in the States; we have some extremist positions but the aversion to regulation for public safety is something more prevalent in the US -- not to mention the twisted notions of what "freedom" means. The fact this weapon was pulled shows how Canada has changed due to the import of illegal weapons smuggled in from the U.S. and the change has not been for the better.)

    Well this works great in B&W! Blown highlights, but are unavoidable in a scene like this and they actually work here. A more angular composition could have worked better, but even after seeing that this might be better.

Oct 11, 2013
    interesting shapes and patterns. well taken

Oct 11, 2013
    Right on theme. Love the lens adjust - you had to have a good eye to spot this. Number one perhaps.

Oct 10, 2013
    i like this for sure. right on theme. just wish you had given a bit more info on your pp and extra info. high in my favorites right away.
