OK, I'm going through the Free Study submissions, purposefully finding those images I think are shot with a less conventional eye - this is one of those images! Thanks for offering something that isn't just DPC friendly eye-candy (though of course there's nothing wrong with eye-candy). I'll be picking one of these images for my Mu (most underrated) award:

Positives: A great title that helps the viewer appreciate the image as you do - I'm not sure I would've seen it had you not pointed it out, so I'm glad you did. The slightly tone-mapped look works really well for this image and I really like the colours too.

Critical stuff: Then clump of grass top right is a tad distracting but I'm not sure what you could have done with it, I also think the crop is a little tight for me.

Overall: A charming image with bags of character.

If the bird shape is the focal point then I think zooming in more on the bike seat is in order to give the image some impact. As it is, the shape is too small to carry the image.

Very well spotted! A photograph of the mundane that becomes oh so much more.

Very creative. And a bold move to enter it here, as I'm sure it's being sorely underappreciated.
