[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Same data as yesterday's post: seated on the ground, 1/20 s at f 32; I feel she should not phone during biking, it's forbidden for the car drivers so I suppose that the law is the same for everybody in or on a vehicle.

The note of my previous post has disappeared, another bug for the TE program

Hello Claude,
You did a good work of panning. I like this better than yesterday's picture because it is straight and we see the woman's face, and she is doing something. And despite the deliberate blur the background provides more information. It's quite a magnificent photo, really.
Are you sure the last note was really entered properly? Sometimes I fail to enter the note, but I always make a copy of it and can post it immediately afterwards by using the "edit". I have never experienced that it was lost afterwards, if it had been in place properly. When I saw your photo yesterday there was no note.

Ciao Claude, nice scene, beautiful panning, wonderful colors and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Claude

I agree. She is not looking where she is going and is a danger not only to herself, but to others who might be in her path. Good panning. The motion blurred bg attests that she is travelling at more than a couple of km an hour. Tfs!

Ciao Claude
proprio pochi giorni fa mi stavo documentando e stavo valorizzando questo tipo di fotografie.
Hai realizzato due belle foto, non sono un esperto, ma il risultato mi piace e vorrei riuscire a ottenere dei risultati simili.

Hi Claude
haha, cool shot. I guess people in today's day and age use our phones just about everywhere right? I have to say, I've never used my phone while riding a bike. Fun panning shot, and her dress draws even more attention. well done

Hi Claude
The panning was the only tech to freeze the movement whilst retaining sharpness of the cyclist who appeared to be distracted on her iphone. Just love those colours, another awesome shot very skillfully done and worth sharing anyway. Congrats
Best wishes

Hello dear friend and have a nice time
and a happy new day and happy weekend
a photo with your personal stamp
I like the whole scenery executed
with originality
wonderful colors and splendid light

Hello Claude,
The notes or mz posts disappear verz often, when I remember it an happen, I save the noe and then put it in edit mode.
Igt is amusing picture but of course, it can be dangerous to ride a bike and phone. excellent picture. KInd regards Malgo

Hello Claude,

excellent image with movement sensation, I like the moment with the woman talking with her cellular phone, the visual effect is very nice, well done,

Best regards,


Hi Claude,
superbly succesful panning shot! There's so much blur in the background. And still the cycly and cyclist are as sharp as possible. You have perfect timing showing her with the phone and watching to the wrong direction.

Hi Claude,
The fact that this lady is calling on the phone-apparently it is an important and urgent call! But she doesn't look where she goes... I hope that no one was hurt :)
I like the feeling of movement on the contrary - static dynamics (or dynamic statics). Thanks for the shot.

yes, even walking can be distractive to use cell phones. nice view of the lady in movement. I liked the sense of movement of the compo.
take care
