"An intellectual is a man who doesn't know how to park a bike."

Fancied a change so whacked on my Nikkor 70-300 VRII for a change.
Zooming in with wide apertures makes for nice shallow dof.
Saw this chained up bike on the beach just past hove with some people in the background.
Converted to mono and added a little unsharp mask.
This is one of those pictures I really like but not sure why ?
Anyway I really enjoyed using my zoom and looking at things in a slightly different way.

Thanks for all your comments,favs and views.

    Nice picture Simon and well picked...
    Sometimes, I find my telephoto lens more interesting as well.. it shows me something that I do not expect to see. Enjoy shooting.

    This is a super B&W image, Simon, which works really well. For me it tells a story - the bike, the beach nicely falling away into the distance, and the two people. it's an interesting scene.
    Excellent composition and dof. too!
