    The recent heavy rains caused the water in Lincoln's Brayford Pool to rise above the walkways that lead out to the moored pleasure craft, semi-submerging this boat-owner's locked bicycle. A high-contrast b&w of the unfortunate machine.

    Thanks Domromer. I thought this approach seemed to suit the subject.

    PS I meant to post this shot in B&W but messed up. If anyone wants to move it feel free. Sorry :blushing:!

    Regards, Tony

    Nice shot! Almost looks like a computer graphic... I really like the stark white background and the mirror water!
    Great shot!

    Awesome, I love it.

    Its simple and uncluttered, lovely starkness to it.

    Thanks for the comments folks (and for correcting my posting error Corinna!) This ws one of those shots that suggested its own treatment. There wasn't a lot going on in the background, and upping the contrast, followed by a little "dodging" set the bike and posts up nicely.

    Regards, Tony
