[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
When going downtown for taking photo, this gentleman asked me to photograph him.
How I could refuse, hed already been posing and giving me that smile lol :D

He was pulling a bicycle cart called becak.
There are many models of becak in each city across Indonesia. If you went to Indonesia, you could hire becaks, the drivers usually are very friendly and a good source of information about the city.

Thanks for viewing, any comments, critiques welcome.

Hello Ratna:))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))
I was waiting long time for your posting and finally here you go with that superb, splendid exotic shot. I like it so much this scene and atmosphere. Colours, contrast and that great POV.
Now about BG: - it is so gooooooodddddd, because shows two parts - modern building and old historic church.
I love this composition - Excellent Ratna. I take my hat off for you:)
Lot of best regards____________ Tom

i like smiling.
good mood.
good colors.
thank u.

hi ratna....
what a nice smile from him,
good shot with nice POV and DOV,
but the blue in Becak its to strong, did u do PP work for that blue ?
ini pagi atau sore ? kalau dilihat dari mataharinya kayanya pagi ya ? soalnya morning windownya masih bagus banget.
akhirnya.... kamu photo natural life juga.
very well done and keep explore your camera....
regards
Haldian

Hi Ratna,
he must like having his picture taken and it sure shows. You captured his facial expression perfectly. A very nice portrait with interesting background.

Hi Ratna, glad to have you back again.beautiful and natural street photo. he seems so happy enough. is that bike really that blue?

Hi ratna, nice street photography with the smiling of an old man but a shame it was over exposured at back ground, I did a workshop with curves adjustment just to bring back the details of the buildings, was it in semarang ?

cheers,

ari

It looks if it was just painted. lol
