Hello Allen

Great choice to desaturate. Eye follows into the picture.

Well done

Not sure about the yellow line of the frame but I like the picture inside of it

ps.Sorry, I've switched off the points

This is so great! Nice curves ;-)
Good choice to keep the yellow line. superb entry for the theme.



one tiny detail: there a bit green and blue left in the left corner (inner bend).

HI Allen
So many interesting lines in this shot to keep our eyes busy but with the yellow line immediately draws our eyes to the curves.
I see that the lines are raised bumps, which is good for that curve, and no matter where we are now there is graffiti.
I personnaly think you got a fantastic shot.

Very good, suitable framing too. Good one

BRAVO Allen. There must have been a degree of difficulty in keeping the yellow lines coloured in this image. I think you have managed it quite well

Allen: Stupendous photo, the curving the yellow line is like the conductor thread of the image. It is good tone of yellow, not too bright!!

Hi Alen
very good capture and study in B&W and supersaturation...
I like the good use of the narrow angle that squeeze the image..
the car is a must in the image..

well done.


Hello Allen, Very clever idea and great choice for the theme.I like the yellow curve guiding us through the picture. TFS
Regards, Pat.

Hello Allen,

This is a fantastic shot!
Your pov is perfect and the line ... well, I've never seen a better leading line!
I like the shadows, particularly the perforated one of the bridge.

Just a note of safety, the car is on the wrong side of the road!! Ha! Ha!

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

hi Allen

Very good title for your desat pp work although I would call it follow the yellow lines, but it suits your title more. Very good example of desat effect.

tfs, bill

Clever work Allen. Well composed and your partial colouring stands out well against the darker tones. Well done,

hello Allen
