This has so much emotion and humour. It is an inspiration.

I had a feeling there had to be something special about this shot, but my brain just could not decipher what it was. I'm still not entirely sure I understand the association to symmetry. It might have worked better for me had the top half of the person been cut-off and I had only seen the wheelbarrow and the bicycle tires. (But I'm guessing that wasn't your vision). Sorry I couldn't see it. Maybe provide details on what you were going for?

S'like too obvious for most. It's specialness is to pick it out of the mundane. We see it, but do not want to celebrate it. Thanks.

Now that I see whose it is, I know this look was intentional. Once again, you have nailed strong appeal for a narrow crowd. A target which I seem to miss even when aiming for it.

I'm not terribly thrilled with the image quality. Fuzzy and low contrast. Not sure if that is intentional or not. However, this scene has a VERY strong connection with me, as I'd much rather go ride my bike than deal with the yardwork. Yardwork, BLEGH.

An 8 for the strong personal impact this image has with me.

Sorry, but I'm not getting the connection here. Maybe the wheelbarrow alone with the two sides of it, but as it is, off-centered and then with the surrounding elements - just can't buy it.

A casual, offhanded nod to symmetry in the midst of everyday life. The wheel barrow's handles/legs shyly peek out from behind the load. A biker happens by. The image is well and pleasingly balanced in tone and composition. Impressionistic. Satisfying.
