I couldn’t choose between these two shots of a bicycle by an amazing door in Maastricht.

What do you think?  Do you have a preference between the two?

Bicycle in Maastricht Photo #1.  While you can’t see as much of the bicycle or cobblestone street, this shot includes an amazing door.

Bicycle in Maastricht Photo #2.  While the cool, black door from above isn’t in this shot, there is a certain je ne sais quoi about this perspective I can’t quite articulate.

  1. I have no preference on these two

  2. Well there’s a little teeny tiny door in the second shot … it made me smile – I think the first has something to say, and the second says something if you look at the first shot first …;)

  3. Both nice, but I prefer the second one mainly because without the door, the bicycle stands out more. It’s clear what the subject is. That said, the door really is nice and probably merits its own shot, too!

  4. I’m a fan of the first shot : a bike “the adventure,” a door “the mystery,” and the angle of the shot catch me in the picture. The second one, a little less.

    I love seeing other people’s shots of bikes after I made a series myself, which can still be implemented with new ones ( http://lespetitspasdejuls.wordpress.com/2012/07/17/lamposts-bikes/ )

    Do you have more? I’m already getting addicted to your pictures! Thanks!

  5. Hi there! Thanks so much for visiting my blog and liking “Happy Thanksgiving”. I’m thrilled your visit brought me to your blog. You have beautiful images posted. As for the above, I think I like the composition of the first image most. The second image is nice, but the first has more to lure the viewer. More intrigue.

    It’s funny, when I first read your “about me” page, I thought to myself, “she’s where I was in 2011”. I hope your journey with photography has been as joyful as mine! I only have three children, but can certainly relate to the busy lifestyle and lack of time to take photography classes. If interested in on-line classes, you could check out Wendy Schulz Photography. She offers on-line classes that get rave reviews. I’ve learned much from her over the years.

    Enjoy your day and please visit my blog again soon!
