Wow, this turned out a bit HDRish. I went to Balboa to photograph the pier, saw this on my way out. Taken at about 0440ish. Cold, windy, and rainy.

BTW, not my bike. It's locked up, and was the reason why I turned around to shoot the scene. To drunk to ride home I'm sure.

I find this shot interesting and well composed. Black and white is a nice touch and I feel like this shot tells a story. Well done

Man, that's either your bike or a low crime area - looks far to nice to be sitting all alone in the middle of the night unattended. I like the lighting on this, and the look of the windows of the shop.

Love the long view up the empty, deserted street, and the shadow of the bicycle. Certainly makes me feel dead of night.

Great perspective. I like the use of black and white, it helps emphasize the form/structure of the building and the bike is a great addition (I assume)

Really nice composition. I like how the palms frame the right side. Nice star flares off the lights. Even the swinging liter free zone sign tells a bit more of the story that you're really beachside. Nice lines. Well done.
