    And the padlock matches the bike frame colour - that's what I call being posh!

    Nice image, Jiro. You have a very observant eye. I look so hard for something to take a pic of that I find nothing.

    I like it. With all the good advice I have received on this site I would be tempted to crop it a bit more, maybe on the left. But then, Willie, I am not often right and this time I am most likely wrong, again.

    I noticed that, too. Probably that's the favorite color of the owner. I'm thinking the owner is probably above 50 as the chain and the lock used was kinda old style for a bike lock to use in an urban setting.

    Thanks, Mary. I will take that as a very nice compliment. Thank you!

    You're fine, Ken. Most of the time I am not right, either. LOL! As usual, I tried to position the bike near the rule of thirds' focal points and I really tried to preserve those two large window on the left across the bike. For me it looks like 2 robotic eyes looking after the bike. Thanks for viewing, Ken. I appreciate it.

    Not that I want to make Ken feel bad, but I agree with your crop Willie - although I hadn't noticed the eyes until you said

    Are the streets really that litter free there?

    One last thought; I might have done a perspective correction to counter the diverging verticals (due to slight camera-down angle), that's all.

    HTH,

    HTH,
    Yup, they are that unbelievably clean. This part of San Antonio, Texas is the main attraction area or what you call "tourist spot". I already applied some lens profile correction on this one, Dave using the lens profile feature available with Lightroom 3.3. Thanks for viewing and for the nice comment.

    Hey
    Hey, no problem. Your comments didn't make me feel bad. You know infinitely more than I will ever know in these matters Dave. And I have learned a few good points from just following the threads on this post. I just wanted to join in and make a personal observation. But you have to realize that from the point of view of being able to offer technical advice, "The last Time I tried to walk on water I darned near drowned."
