I thought the scenic image of the Palouse's rolling hills, required some sort of addition to make the composition a bit more interesting,& thought the addition of the motorcyclist,who was on his way there,might fit the bill.

Hi Ron.

A refined b/w detail on offer here, i do like the crispness and clarity. The strong double white lines lead the eye so well, the rolling hills remind me of a ruffled carpet. Great scene, very well composed, tfs

stv ;o))

Hoi Ronald,

Indeed, those lines. They do so much for the image !

The landscape is beautiful, and the motor is fine. A pity for the man's jacket, but the motor is the correct brand. ;-)

Good choice for B&W. The sky was grey already.


Neat shot, Ron.

The point of view, looking over his shoulder is excellent, and the pose/stature of the rider lets us plainly see he's awestruck at the view ahead.

Great contrast and light.
Wise decision to convert this to BW so the viewer isn't distracted by the many (more than likely beautiful) colours of the fields. The impact of the shot is exactly where you want it EG, the rider and his cruise ahead.

Another great decision was to crop this in Portrait which adds excellent perspective and distance.

Great shot.

Indeed! The long and winding road is right place for bike rider. Awesome capture of this landscape especially in B&W. Good lighting and dof with nice contrast. Well done, tfs.

so much beautiful lines in the landscape.
and sharp contrast.
a great place to be for a bike rider.

Nicely combined of this two pictures. I think I would like if you zoom out the biker to give a tiny bit more space on the bottom :D

Hi Ron, a great capture, made even better by the B&W treatment. shades of Easy Rider or Rebel Without a Cause on this image.

A great B/W Ron- Like the tonalities and the way you make me look the horizon as it was me on the bike. good tones and contrst.
I like it a lot

Hi Ron, never mind the motorbike, that would a fun ride on a push bike.Rollercoaster country.That must have been a sea of colour in the original.Fiona

Great eye catching shot Ron. Good idea to add the motor cyclist and to show the image in b/w in a vertical format. Wonderful contrasts and textures and superb PP work.


bonjour Ron
very eye catching pov and shot ; the B&W adds to the blachk angels mood.

Hi Ron,
These are two very nice images merged seamlessly into one, well done.
I just wish he would keep his hand on the throttle ;)

Nice job,
