Post-Processing: Convert to black and white       Extra Info: While riding on a tricycle, I took this photo of a prominent structure near my town which is beside a river. I've done some some research and found out this "mansion" dates back during the Spanish period.

    Appreciate your comments guys. This is a busy street so its difficult not to include any passers by. But I guess it adds to the story that people often ignore this beautiful structure. I agree I should've used a slower shutter speed to blur the motorcycle.

    This was in my top 3. I love the contrast between the beautiful abandoned building and the biker who seems to ride right past it, oblivious to its beauty.

    Love the building. Hate the motorcycle. Riding a bike with no helmet, with bare arms and legs and a purse over your shoulder is just a way of begging to have the gene pool improve. You were right to have something in that position to balance the photo perfectly but what you needed was an old lady with a cane :-) Still in my tt due to the great composition. You have a good eye for sure.

    the bike spoils the picture as it appears motionless

    Great old building with loads of character. It was a great choice to convert to B&W. The biker is an enigma. He doesn't seem to belong, and yet the photo would have no life without him.

    The motorcyclist adds interest to the photo although it makes the subject confusing -- the biker or the building.

    Something I really like about the picture, I think the motorcyclist really adds here, at the same time he seems out of place. I like it!

    The interesting building, vertical crop and B&W processing all contribute to making this a nice photo. However, including the man on the motorbike is a great touch, that makes it a much better and more interesting image. It's a top favorite of mine.
