    Re: Colour or Mono

    The colors are very simple and restful to look at. In this case I feel the speed limit sign does need the red to make it stand out as otherwise I would feel it just looks like a blemish that needs to be cropped off.

    It might look better if the bicycle were moved a few meters forward so that the speed limit sign appears further down on the diagonal, but image composition is a mystery to me, which makes it an interesting topic!

      I did think of square format and lose the sign

        I would say square and mono but a bit lighter

        How about this processed from the colour version
