[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I was amazed at the style and elegance of the bicycle riders in Copenhagen. I think we have a lot to learn in the US. In our country I can't imagine someone getting in a way dressed up to ride their bike through town but in many places around the world this is the norm.

HAHA! It ain't happenin for me! NO WAY... I can't ride 27-30mph in that git-up! Cute shot, a real eye catcher Roger! I especially like the couple walking in the BG! What is WEIRD is that SHE isn't blurred and THEY are. Now HOW did you do that? SHE should be blurred more than them! Intersting!

Wonderful capture !
Very elegant and eye catching.
Have you a tried a B&W version ?
Or some partial desaturation maybe (B&W BG) ?

Hello Roger,

Lovely clarity and detail. There is a sense of motion here. The semi-stiff posture of the cyclist makes this a rather interesting shot. Thanks.

Regards,
Siddhartha

Quality, rather than quantity of life I think Roger:-)
Wow, people without jeans,how can they survive,kidding folks
just kidding.
I like your composition, with the cyclist just coming into the scene,happily listing to ,I presume, music, & it looks like she hasn't a care in the world. The two people strolling along the bridge ,give a feeling of motion due to their slight blur.

Hi Roger,
I agree with you...What an elegance and a queenly bearing she has!
I like the close placement of your subject in foreground.
The acuity of the couple in BG is so intriguing. I think the shadows, in counterpoint, is for something!
Excellent observation and rendering of this daily scene! Annie

WoW
Thats really something i've never seen too Roger :)
Well dressed pretty lady on an old bike riding with all grace, This really looks so beautiful :)

I like the way u've composed it, but in my opinion if u have used the panning technique it would have created more interest into it~! Just my personal opinion :)

Indeed! Well done Roger I like this, the composition is very clever with a tight crop of the young woman and plenty of space for the bicycle to go. I would have cropped a bit more of the upper part for more dynamism but it's a matter of taste really. Focus is spot on and exposure too. Well observed!
