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!

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

This is really something! I love the unexpected nature of the subject, the simplicity of the black and white, and the reflection in the water!

Thanks for the further comments on this shot guys. Probably one of my better recent B&Ws. I suppose it works on the old principle, that I remember from learning photography in the days of film, of eliminating everything that isn't needed to make the shot.

Regards, Tony
