Hi Do
That is one awesome capture.
The lighting and the contrast of the clouds are really nice and the eye contact with the sun is beautiful. the silhouettes adding to the composition but the light hitting those bikes is a wow.
Great shot

Hi Tuan,

Hello Do,
A GREAT photo my friend!
Wonderful colours and light and a very nice composition. I like the situation of the bikes and the people.
What kind of PP-work did you do?
Greetings from Netherland,

it's a shame you don't explain in the photographer's note how you managed to get such a wonderful result
exposure is spot on everywhere, but it's so efficient that i'd like to understand..
however a masterpiece of post-processing (and composition)

Hi Do,
Very bold - I love it! I like they way you have used the colours in the sky and how it leads you around the shot. The colour detail in the bicycle is a nice touch also - subtlety against the powerful sky. I am inspired. Well done you.
Regards Marko.
