[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I realise this is an old trick and has been used many times - also by myself. Nevertheless, it is not as easy as it may look. And this particular shot, I feel, quite well conveys the pleasures of a biking tour in France in spring. The bike is there, a tree in blossom, the vineyards and the mountains - and the biker.
On the technical side all I did was crop to leave just enough of the face to get the impression of a person watching that landscape.

Oh very fine capture - you surely got the eye for those photos Per ;-)
Yes its an old idea, but I like - and besides my sunglasses not useful for this, Thanks for sharing.

The landscape would make a great photo on its own, but the fact that you captured in the reflection of your sunglasses makes it an even more incredible shot. I am amazed that the colours are so good. Well done, Per. Very well framed!!

very nice! You did a great work hidding the camera itself! :)

it's a trick a use sometime too. Here, you have a very nice result. The landscape is very nice and the photograph in general show us that you take the picture while you made your biking tour. All the element are there: The beautiful view, the biker and the bicycle. Well done.

Very well done Per! I would like to try this some time - only problem is I don't have a bike, so I will have to try with the car! You are right - you have captured this very well and have created just the right "touring" atmosphere. Nice and sharp too! Well done.

Great creactive work, Per.

I like the reflection. The note it's very good, too.

Well done

Well, while reflection shots have been seen many times, I have not often seen one that is as good as this is. As your note says, it's kind of like a nutshell summary of a pleasurable biking trip through rural Southern France. Excellent cropping job, and stunning detail in the reflection. Very well done.

Good shot! You've captured the reflection in the sunglasses very well, and I particularly like the way the vines line up not once but three times! I find the slightly overexposed patch on the forehead marginally distracting, but other than that I really like it :-D

beautiful landscape, the vineyard adds a nice perspective to the shot. very good idea and work

great shot here, i like the immense of detail here, well done

Very good pic,great sharpness and you could show his environment indirectly!

Amazingly clear picture of the vineyards. Well done, very creative!


Excellent shot, good framing composition. I like it!
