[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

The light would come and go, quicker then I could setup the tripod and the cyclists seemed to be doing exactly what I was doing... chasing light, literally in his case. A single capture of war ravaged French era bridge on Kampot riverfront, but proudly survives as an icon and symbol of the town.

Setting: 16 mm, 1/60 sec, F22, ISO Raw 200, 1718 hrs & Polariser to cut the glare

Hi Abmdsudi,another time no needs to read the name of the photographers,i can recognize your style in this amazing perspective,great backlight so well exposed and excellent sharpness too with all the mouving effect made by the cyclist,well done! Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

Bonjour, cher Abmdsudi,
Pas facile de jouer avec la lumière surtout quand elle s'amuse à faire des aller et retour !
L'ambiance est une fois de plus fort bien reproduite et intéressante.

Hello Abmdsudi
This is really a photo that is improved by imperfection. A fast unexpected event that requires you to take a action photo quickly can’t and mustn’t be perfect. Nevertheless, the light and colours are also interesting on this interesting photo.
Excellent work
Have a nice day, groet Rob

Witaj Abmdsudi!
A very interesting bridge, I like it.
Construction makes impression.
Good framing, colors and light.
Well done.
Good evening.

Ciao Abmdsudi, lovely composition with bikeman, excellent perspective, splendid light and wonderful colors very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Bonjour Abmdsudi,

J'aime beaucoup le titre qui accompagne cette belle composition. Beau choix de point de vue très bas qui donne de la hauteur aux bicyclettes qui foncent vers la lumière.

I like the light and the graphism of bridge structure taken against the sky, very well done
regards Ryszard

Hello abmdsudi,

Excellent composition with great dynamism. It earned its place among the favourites.

Best Wishes,

Hi Abmdsudi,
Great looking perspective along this rough textured bridge. Backlight is intense and fortunately the sun is not directly visible. That cyclist is perfectly placed and his posture creates strong sense of speed.

Hi Abmdsudi
Bonne prise de ces différents véhicules allant vers la lumière, bel effet sur le sol, bon POV, netteté, beau moment capturer
Bonne journée

Ciao Abmdsudi
il ponte sembra portare bene i suoi anni e le sue vicissitudini.
I soggetti sembrano rincorrere la luce, come dici tu, ma io ho anche la sensazione che il ragazzo in bici stia inseguendo le moto!!!
