[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Another picture taked last sunday, while I was travelin by car in Umbria. When I was on the road I suddenly crossed a bycicle trial...and so I tried to cath some imagine of this athlets....when I after saw the shot on my macintosh I started o think how they feel runnin' under this burnin' sun...and I suppose that they often have vision like this...a sort of psychedelic trip...

hey man, i like this one. i love bikes and i just can't let this pass without appreciating it! without the psychedelic colors i would have loved it more! the framing of the bike as well as the side view mirror is perfect! Ron

Bonjourno Giuliano

I like the distorted, fluorescent, colors & partial solarization effect. Well lit, & a well managed action shot, from a moving vehicle. Good work!

Well composed Giuliano I like the idea, it's different, original and fresh. Less static than my photography.

Well that's a different way to see it :)
Nice one. It seems as surreal... Actually it ould as well be part of a video game ;)
Well done Giuliano!

take care, Stef

To be honest I looked several times to “ The Trip” in the thumbnail I had very high expectance. After zoom it is still good. I like the abstract landscape and was hoping that the cycling man was intact. Including the mirror.

L'immagine e' bella, asimmetrica ed interessante con lo specchietto che riflette il prato. Non sono convinto dell'eccessivo uno di pP per forzare i colori. Ho l'impressione che l'originale sia piu' bella.
Comunque una buona intuizione che merita due punti
ciao Paoo

The original compo is well made with the included detail of the car mirror and the placement of the biker in the compo.
Interesting post work even if I mistake that the original was 'good enough'..

The colors look really unnatural in the landscape, but cool. The bicyclist definately improves the picture into looking a lot more life like. nicelyy done.
