[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
While strolling through the old town of Zug, I came across the main road that runs through town and found that it was roped off so no one could walk into the street. Shortly after hundreds of people came speeding by on rollerblades competing in a race. I looked up and saw this woman looking out her window. I don't actually know if she's a widow, but I would love to know what she was thinking of all these crazy people dressed in spandex, helmets and pads speeding by on fancy rollerskates on a hot day in the summer.

Mathew,If your original photo has more room on each side of the window frame, less sevsere cropping would help this photo. Good subject, just need some balance.

Nice shot, I tried ur pic in photoshop, realised if u increase a bit of red colour in the image, it becomes very natural, interestingly removed the extra greenish tone as well, apart from that slightly reducing the brightness and increaseing the contrast slightly improved the picture quality as well


Good morning Sunshine...

Interesting photo, interesting moment.

Well done,
