Re: Colour or Mono

The colors are very simple and restful to look at. In this case I feel the speed limit sign does need the red to make it stand out as otherwise I would feel it just looks like a blemish that needs to be cropped off.


It might look better if the bicycle were moved a few meters forward so that the speed limit sign appears further down on the diagonal, but image composition is a mystery to me, which makes it an interesting topic!
