My shot . . .

This shot took up quite a bit of my time while I studied it. Very interesting. . .the different reflections, the scooter and the car, the curvature of the window. But at the end I think the scooter is too close to the car -- for my taste. It blends into the car instead of being an independent object, so the effect of the two vehicles is reduced. But I still like it.
> Christopher Strevens - Station on the bridge
Also an interesting shot. . . crisp lines contradicted by the funny triangular form.
> Bob McCulloch - Beach Pine
This is a pleasing arrangement of evergreen branches, with pine cones, but to me it is too static.
> Art Faul -
This was interesting until I read the techno information followed by the comment referring to some unknown "Jack". Then it all became part of a photographer's locker room banter in some kind of competition for points -- at which it became less interesting. But luckily the image itself kept some interest from sinking.
- It’s like San Francisco without the steep hills. Bear in mind that Italians also drive a lot of Vespas and other scooters and they are thrown into the mix.I recall going around the Coliseum on a Vespa and when I turned to see a dark shape on my left I found a Fiat 500 less than 15cm from my mirror. But then, that was before I drove in India, Hong Kong, and Cairo and my advice for those is to hire a driverOn Sep 27, 2013, at 5:00 PM, visfxsup wrote:Oh so its like san Francisco but worseSent from my T-Mobile 4G LTE Device

Thank you Yoram for your time and for the review.
The scooter is too close to the car because this is the nature of the
Italian alleys.Perhaps Yoram could get a job at the Italian Parking Ministry so he could drive around towns and penalize cars for parking too close together. He will have a lot of work, as almost everybody in Italy parks on the bumper of another car. Furthermore, there is no Italian PArking Ministry so everybody parks where they want.
