    Bill, I have mixed feelings about this one. The compositional balance and framing are very nice. The idea for the relationship between the bikes and the tree trunk is good and could make a strong image.

    The bright "suckers" from the tree make the image very busy, which to my eye detracts from the bicycles as the main subject.

    Not sure what your intention was for the subtle color remaining on the bicycle and tree trunk (apparently), while the rest of the frame is black and white. The limited color doesn't really add anything for me. I know this is an IR or pseudo-IR image, so unexpected results are the norm, but this one doesn't quite get there for me.

    Just my opinion, which may be complete rubbish!

    Not rubbish at all. I post images here for honest opinions and appreciate your candid comments.

    Bill, I like it, but I'd just as soon see it either without the bicycles, or else without the leaves. Those leaves are fascinating, though. They really draw your eye, and the bicycles sort of get in the way. Or vice-versa.

    Nate, Thanks for looking and commenting. I agree that it's a complex image.

    Linny, Thanks. Shooting IR can certainly be a challenge.

    Thumbs up Re: Bicycles

    Bill, like the subject , but if you came in from the right of the photo at that angel the cast of light would be better to manage on the gears and the leaves. But the frames and everything is 99% it also be fogs me how you got the camel color in the bike to the left ? Cheers pete
