Hi John,

Great patterns and perspective. The bike makes a really good compostion too.


great frame good cropping ,good simpicity shot.

Hello John

WOW this capture really pops! excellent POV taken on a good angle with sharp detail and good contrast. I like how you got the right hand bottom corner of the tiles to match in the corner of the shot and the drop shadow gives a fantastic 3D effect.

TFS regards Helen

Hallo John.
Dat staat er prachtig op.!
Maar goed dat ik de mijne, genomen op 11 februari er niet opgezet heb. die zijn stukken minder.
Je heb je vloer prachtig los gemaakt van het frame.
Prima inzending, John.
Ben benieuwd wat je van Willenstad heb. Prachtig foto stad.
Heb ik ook nog een file van.
Groeten van Jan

Czesc John,

Great capture. Lovely composition (in background - a bike) and optical effect (perspective + floor). Nice colours and clarity. Well done my friend & TFS :]

Pozdrowienia z Polski,

Splendid POV, excellent lines and geometry John,
Love the bike in the background, that's a nice touch.
Great designers eye you have!

Hello John,
I'm still trying to figure out what is the purpose of this fine piece of architecture!
From what I see I'd say it is a luxurious parking lot for bikes, hehehe...
Good lines and a fine sense of depth, sharp fine details!

Hi John,
Beautiful place! And very good photo with an excellent composition. Well rendered colors, perspective and kinetic patterns on the floor. The bicycle is a good addition at this view. If I can, I would like that you had go more at the right side for showing the columns entirety.
Beautifully done! Annie

Hmmm...at first this seemed to be a simple shot of interesting patterns and structural elements. Then I saw the bicycles in the distance and also realized that there seem to be benches around this space...almost completely camouflaged by the change in color from dark to light on the wall. Lots more to consider than first meets the eye:) Well done!

Whoa bro, that's a lot of floor :-).
Good capture.
Excellent perspective.

HI Johnny! I am back from NYC and back to see this lovely study of lines and angles! LOVE IT! Very smooth, excellent sharpness and angles WORK well here,...love the bike too!!

Hi John,
nice graphisme here,the perspective is also clever.Well done.

Hi John,

Impressive perspective created by these multiple lines which guide the eyes to the bicycle, very well seen. Also a pleasant composition in a few colours, excellent presented. TFS

Kind regards,

Hi John

Excellent composition and POV.
Very good perspective.
Very well taken.

Regards Derek

hello john!
great photo with interesting floor, wonderful composition.

Pure perspective... ceiling color helps to concentrate on the graphic of the whole shot, and its B/W.
Diagonal lines in the floor pattern are also very good stressed.
Ciao, Antonella

Goed John, Mr. John Tulip, wat hier hebben wij? Heel wat vierkanten allen in zwart en wit bovenop dat een blauwe fluweelkemphaan aan het eind een fiets. Een vreemde samenstelling, maar houd ik van het aan het eind, vertel me geen waarom, maar het aardig kijkt, bijna een modern stuk van art. Zo moet ik u mijn complimenten geven - opnieuw.
De eigenlijke beste wensen van Jens.

Merhaba John,
Cok Guzel.Tebrikler !!!!!Very cool and wonderful graphic photo.Congrats!!
Best Regards from Turkiye.

Hi John, Nice and interesting perspective here. I like all of the designs on the floor and ceiling. Could very well be a black and white photo, then the blue ceiling adds another touch.

I also like the bike in the background.

I like it!

Hoi John
Heel apart. Springt er uit en door hem lso van achtergrond te maken is de

'A Goody' Johnny :-)

Gives me the impression of a 3D photo...and I think all due to the way you have pasted it here and with the 3d Shadow, and the black and white tiles here give that extra effect.

Good work and presentation John.

Hey John
I love the bikes in the Bg.. also the lines and the floor is amazing! Lots to see.. many wonderful lines to follow!


Hi John,

That sounds like a nice endeavour to go on a two day Shooting Holland tour! Would like to do that one day myself, just don't manage to find the time and also it's more fun to do it with a friend photographer. But most of my friends have other hobbies ;-).
Nice view. The bike really had to be in there. Have to get used to the shaded framing I guess.

Thanks for sharing!

Greetings, Dennis

Hello John,

Very nice composition, with a equally nice perspective and the patterns of the floor a nice touch. Very good DOF and ,lighting and presentation.

I hope to see many more pictures from your 'Safari'; what a great idea!

Mooie strakke compositie. Mooi lijnenspel.
Gr Jos

Oei, mooi John, het gaat helemaal trillen voor mijn ogen.

Lovely strong composition with the B&W floor tiles and the bikes for that bit of extra.

Of course a tasteful presentation.


Ciao John, superb graphic and splendid perspective, BRAVO!!!, very well done, ciao Silvio

Nice set-up, John - well composed.
The bicicle in the bg is a nice touch, gives the pristine geometry a 'human' touch.
Noticed the floor left front needs some mopping (maybe a PS mop might do the trick?)
PS: see you in Montreal ...

Ha John,

Ja,ja, er komt een dag en dan ga je er voor. Echte Street Art van het antieke soort.
Heel goed gezien, prima vastgelegd en prachtig verzorgd gepresenteerd! Goed gedaan jochie, een tien met griffel.

John, niet om te slijmen of zo, maar deze had ik al een tijdje in de gaten en ook al wel eens bekeken en zo... zonder even een commentaartje achter te laten.
Nu dan: hoe langer ik er naar kijk, hoe beter ik deze vind. Echt. Qua compositie een meesterwerkje. Vooral door de vloer, maar wat ik er echt knap aan vind is die ene dwarsligger, die dwars geplaatste fiets.
Eerst dacht ik dat het plafond last had van een moiré-effect, maar toen zag ik dat het eigenlijk de vloer is die wordt weerspiegeld.
Kijk, 't is simpel: als deze van mij was dan hing ie nu aan de muur, 50x70 of zo ;o).
My respects!

Hello John,
You always have beautiful landscapes, but I think you also have a good eye for the geometrics, as in this shot as well as your "4 Lead-ins in Montreal". The design of the tile and the appearance of the bicycle give much interest.

Bonjour John,

Très jolie perspective : le choix de l'angle, la hauteur, c'et vraiment bien maitrisé. Un seul regret : le cadre que je trouve vraiment envahissant.

Hi John,
Very effective composition, great POV and details. Happy birthday to You, my Friend.
