[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A lady motorcycle-rider I saw while in a stop-over location on our trip to Be’er-Sheva.
She had agreed for a photo only when she was fully under her “costume”.
Then, took-off in an engine roar…

A RAW picture cropped all sides to avoid disturbing objects in the parking lot.

Hello Ike,
Your chosen crop works well putting the accent on the biker. She (though difficult to confirm this in her gear:-)) sits well against the vivid green coach. I like the shadow play across the fuel tank.

Hello Ike,

Very nicely shoot the lady biker against the green bus make the subject more prominent, framing work is superb and good color contrast, well done my friend,

my warm regards

Hello Ike,
Excellent photo of this lady and her motorcycle. Excellent sharpness and a fine, bright light. The coach provides a very colourful background too, which goes well with the dark tones of the biker's uniform.

Hi Ike,

The motorcycle is well placed in the frame. The point of view is showing the details of the motorcycle and of the clothings of the rider. Have a nice day.


Hello Ike,
That Honda is a very sleek looking bike. The color of the bus in the background is as "loud" as the bike was. The two make an attractive combination.

Hello Ike, it is difficult to say if this is a lady, we do not see her face. She sits nicely against the green tourist bus. I also go everywhere with my backpack but bike and motorbike is not for me.

Have a nice day

Bravo et amitié

Bonjour, cher Ike,
A croire qu'il s'agit de Jeanne d'Arc avec son heaume revenue au Temps modernes pour chevaucher cette superbe moto.
Comme quoi, la moto attire filles ou garçons !
Très bonne composition.

Hello Ike,

Congratulations, 1500 pictures on TE.
This is very difficult to see that she is a lady.
But your picture is nice taken with the yellow background.
This is a nice if daily life picture.
Composition and presentation are nice to look at.
Very well done, TFS.

Best regards,

Hola Ike
Sans lire la note , il est difficile de voir si c'est une fille ou un garçon !! belle moto, bien entretenue, son sac a dos avec du bleu qui ce copie a celui du réservoir, bel effet d'ombre et de lumière
belle journée

Hello Ike,

I'm sure the 'R' on the green van has nothing to do with 'ROAR' but it does make a nice link after reading your notes! Her motorbike gear gives her great anonymity for in it, it is impossible to tell the gender of the rider.
You have captured the bike at a good compositional angle so that it guides to the van, where the rider shows up well against the vivid colour.

My warm regards,
Bev :-)

Hello Ike,

Looks like this domestic Israeli tour company caters a lot for Japanese visitors judging from the hiragana or katakana adorning the green bg bus. Excellent sharpness and a nice catch of the female motorcyclist. Tfs!

Hello Ike So, she preferred playing the 'Invisible Woman' for the picture! The black suit and the motorcycle rather give her some airs of the Batgirl of yesteryears! Nice portrait anyway!

Hello Ike,

I wouldn´t say the motorbike was riding by a woman, good image with great details, I like the green background of the bus also, well seen,

Best regards,


Hello Ike,

Until I read the sign on the bus and your note, I didn't know whether this photo was from Scotland or Israel. She insisted on remaining anonymous when you were photographing her. Once in the Old City of Jerusalem on my first of 5-6 visits, I was about to take a photograph of an old woman peeling sabra fruit. But then I realized while looking through the eyepiece and focusing manually that I was having a hard time keeping her in focus. I realized then that she was waving the peeling knife in my direction, that's why she was out of focus. She too wanted to remain anonymous.

Warm regards,


Hallo Ike,
Interesting scene, good photo and comment, well done!
Best regards
