[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Visiting Rome by bike is an invigorating and energizing experience. Part of the historic city center – that includes spots like the Pantheon and Castel Sant’Angelo – is closed to traffic and, even considering that it is mainly a pedestrian area without real cycling routes, byciclers and pedestrians alike can enjoy the area’s life, history and beauty.

On Sundays, a small section of the center running alongside the Campidoglio and stretching to the Colosseum is closed to traffic, making it ideal for cycling near the Imperial Forums in peace and freedom.

Hello daniel, Have you visited Rome by bike? Interesting idea but unfortunately not for me - I can't ride a bike :(. Artistic composition with this red old wall and bikes .

Kind regrad s Malgo

Ciao Daniel
bellissima foto, mi ricorda la tua foto di Amsterdam, ma con una facciata più....vissuta.
Dalle cose semplici nascono le foto migliori.

Hello Daniel,
To me this is one of your best photos. It is partly due to the beautiful faded colours of the wall, but there are so many elements that contribute, like the bikes, the street sign and the bars in front of the window. A photo with as many ingredients as this doesn't even need a person: ;-)

Hello Daniel,
A composition out of the ordinary from the Eternal City. The colourfully textured wall makes a lovely backdrop for the cycles. Very well spotted this photo opportunity and beautifully realised.

Hello Daniel,

The decorative window safeguard and old facade, care for a nice picture, also the bikes are a nice addition.
Nice architecture picture too.
Composition and presentation are perfect.
Very well done, TFS.

Have a nice day,

Bonjour Daniel,

Je trouve que Rome est une ville qui se marche très bien et je ne crois pas être près de prendre les rues loin d'être disciplinées en bicyclette. Mais pour la photo, c'est magique.



Hello Daniel,

it is a good way to visit Rome... good image with different elements such as the bikes and the window, I like it,

Best regards,


Hi Daniel,
Strong saturation works well on this city scene. Blue looking pavement is surprising. And texture of that rust tone wall simpley fantastic.

Hello Daniel,
Different attractive elements such as the bikes under that beautiful wrought iron decoration at the window and the street sign.
The composition, the sharpness and the colours are all excellent.
Above all, I believe, it's the red weathered wall that makes this picture so magnificent.
Well observed and executed.
Best regards, Paul

For Rome, the bike is the perfect means of transportation, it would help to protect the monuments from Car exhaust, but unfortunately, you cannot forbid cars in the city, very nice photo

Hi Daniel,

The square format works well here. Wonderful warm cold color contrasts between the red and blue with good repetition of the fg bicycles. Tfs!

The bold colourful wall says it all, the heavy ironwork on the window, that big road sign en even the somewhat strange sign that seems to show pedestrians and cyclists the way up...they're all great extra's. A fine picture, Daniel. Well spotted, well taken. COngratulations.

Witaj Daniel!
Curious wall, interesting window.
Good frame and super colours.
Bicycles add flavor to this composition.
Well done.
Nice afternoon.

Hi Daniel
you stumbled across a very cool scene here with that coloured wall, thats awesome. and look at all the texture and cracked paint in different shades. I've never really thought about biking a city, perhaps I should. very attractive shot, you framed it perfectly. cheers

Hi Daniel,

I love the color and the texture of the wall, it's amazing and so typical of Italy and the rest of southern Europe. The window and the bikes fill the frame and complete the whole composition perfectly. Well done.


Hi Daniel,
Good composition. I like how the bike is positioned straight under the window. Nice colours and lines in this, really pleasing visually. Well done.
Best regards
