Taken in Amsterdam. I think this was some form of art or something. Basically these are red plastic plates hanging on strings over the entrance to a street. It was very odd, but I liked the way it was illuminated at night.

Another shot of bicycles in Amsterdam. This scene was fairly common in the city, so I figured I’d capture it. The bike racks are always overflowing with bikes, it’s amazing that anyone can find theirs in the mess.
I’m not really one for using selective colour on my monochrome images, however I figured this one lended itself well to the technique. The image on its own was a little boring, and the background was overexposed.
The image was converted to black & white using an adjustment layer in Photoshop. The red areas of the bike were erased from the layer mask, letting the red show through.
