There are over 800,000 bicycles in Amsterdam. That’s more bikes than people!

Amsterdam regularly comes out on top in lists of the world’s most cycle-friendly cities, and there’s no finer way to explore the city’s streets, canals and attractions than by pedal power. Cycling in Amsterdam is practical, enjoyable and healthy - so join the locals and hop on your bike.

hello Daniel,
une composition intéressante avec ce vélo devant le canal. Des reflets agréables.
Bonne journée

Hello Daniel,

How could you post a photograph from Amsterdam without including a bicycle! or a canal and you have given us both!
This is a compact and very well balanced photograph;the reds diagonally opposed.
The reflections in the water give interest between f/g and b/g.

Have a good day,
Bev :-)

Hello Daniel,
This is unmistakably Amsterdam of course with this canal and a bicycle leaning against a bridge railing. Excellent close-up photo. The reflections in the calm water make a fine background.

Bonjour, Daniel,
Parfait, difficile de mieux représenter la ville avec ce vélo (roi) et son canal où les barques amarrées remuant au gré du vent.
Une image qui pourrait faire l'objet d'une première de couverture.

Bravo et amitié

Hello Daniel,

An excellent close up view of daily life in Amsterdam, your text is well informative, the paddle is always better from automobile like car and bike, Eco-friendly, background is beautiful, good sharpness and color.

my warm regards,


Bonjour Daniel,

On ne peut pas visiter Amsterdam sans faire une photo semblable si on est un photographe qui se respecte. Ici , tu as eu la chance d'avoir une nappe à carreaux pour embellir l'ensemble.

My first thought: a photo from the Netherlands, and indeed a typical Dutch scene - a bicycle at the railing and the canal as the background :), very well spotted and captured
regards Ryszard

Bicycle "parked" along any canal, its a symbolic sign of Amsterdam, and Netherland in general, Daniel.
Wonderfully spotted and shown on photo.

Hello Daniel,

It seem or all people take a break, but you chose a very well angle.
I like the panorama view about the area.
Pleasant picture with the bike in foreground.
The picture is wonderful sharp and clear.
Very well done, TFS.

Have a nice day,

Hello Daniel,

Nice composition, the location was clear from the first time.

Best Wishes

Hello Daniel

And there are 9 million bicycles in Beijing, according to the artist Katie Melua, haha. No, seriously, I remember well the many bicycles from my two visits in the city the recent years. I would really like to hire a bicycle in that town. It`s a nicely composed postcard and a lovely street- and canal-view of Amsterdam. Fine work:) TFS.

Greetings, Erling

Hi Daniel
Une composition typique de la Hollande, bien pris le vélo avec les reflets, quelques touches de rouges un peu partout dans l'image,
belle présentation
Belle soirée

Hi Daniel
This down to earth bicycle makes a very good subject with lovely touch of red colour, a place known amongst others for it myriads of environmental friendly two-wheeler. It's well spotted and captured with attractive background detail. Good grab, Congrats
Best wishes

Hello Daniel By showing many bicycles on both sides of canal you composed much depth to your picture that is a strong incentive to visit Amsterdam the easiest and cheapest way!
