    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    I don't really like it.

    It's way too busy, the background is cluttered with people's legs. The rope fence has gold poles which clash with the gold bike.

    We can't even see the whole bike...if that's the subject of the photo...I'd like to see more of it.

    It doesn't seem to have a clear subject. Is it the bike or is it the scene of the bike with the crowd?

    I agree that the background is too cluttered. I looks like this was at an event so there's probibly not much that you can do about that. Maybe if you could have gotten a little bit more DOF so that it blurred the people into indistinguishable shapes. It's a tough call though cause you gotta work with what your given.

    I definitely would have liked to seen the full bike as well!!! Agree with Big Mike on all his comments, too busy etc.

    Ditto. A full bike shot would have been better, and the crowd + the velvet rope ruin the shot. If you were going for a "on the bike" effect then you would have to get rid of both the rope and crowd.
