      Extra Info: There are two types of bikes in our local "bicycle library" (analogous to a book lending library). Those bikes that can be loaned, and those that are in serious disrepair. In this later group (my photo), some are destined for the bike junk yard, while some will undergo "purification" and again hit the road.

    I thought this would have made TT for sure. Of all the shots I might expect to see in a public gallery, this is the only one in this Challenge.

    This reminds me of some of the metal sculptures you find in recycle places - only it hasn't been assembled yet. A wonderful and surprisingly colourful jumble of bikes - Great eye!

    at least they are destined for future use and found in rivers and docks
my friend uses one nearby for spares and also builds bikes himself
the picture has some many things to lookk at and angles so well done

    It took me a while to like this capture. I think the chaos both makes it and distracts, simultaneously. It is almost too busy so that the eye does not know where to go. I guess that is the purpose.

    Really good eye to have spotted this one. Very attractive composition, bright and interesting.

    I like this. Wonderful abstraction and plenty of interesting shapes. In theme and well done. In my favorites.

    "Bikes" would have worked just fine (one word). Such a cool shot. High high interest and great colour, depth, framing, geometric patterns. (My no. 2)

    Very creative subject. I love the different colourful bike parts and the yellow chains.

    I like the concept and imagery. I would have liked to see a bit more dynamic lighting or editing to give the photo some increased depth. Still a top favorite of mine.
