Hello dear friends,

A bit late for my entry in the Friday's theme: In the street. Sorry, I was away from my home all the last week. I looked at your entries on my laptop, but, as its screen isn't really good, and doesn't pay justice at your photos, I prefered don't write critique.

I have found this photo in my files. It was a foggy september's day. The small motorcycle was slow as a turtle and it was impossible to pass. So I take this opportunity to shoot through the windshield of the car.

Raw photo converted in JPG. Technically, I wanted to try something of new, blending with PhotomatixPro 4.1 two copies, one with original colors and a second in B&W. I like the result...what do you think about?

I copied and pasted the new copy on my JPG conversion for keeping the exif data.

Thank you for stopping by.

Hello Dear Annie,

I hope that someone else is driving while you are shooting!!It is a mysterious shot not knowing whats ahead... the light from the car on the other side make this more interesting. POV is good so is the focus. TFS

Hi Annie,
A wonderful soft atmosphere in this misty street! Great use of shallow DOF with the motorcycle in perfect sharpness while the car is blurred and its headlamps shines magnificently.
I like the concept of this composition with perfect exposure management. The road sign is doing impact to the whole presentation.
Well done for this worthy entry to the theme.
My best regards,

Francis Xavier

Olá annie
You have a excellent way of catching the light moments. The definition of this misty weather is impressive. Cannon sould be very happy with you.
I hope you are having a good WE
Um abraço

Hi Annie
This is one mystical misty shot captured with beautiful framing to keep the motor biker off the centered while the coming car lights adds drama to the composition with good depth.

I like the mood you have caught in this scene, Annie!
Good usage of natural available light with nice sharpness on this well caught moment.
Well done!

Have a nice Sunday!

Kind regards,

hi annie
very nice shot

Hi annie,
a very interesting and moody street shot. Good timing to wait for an oncoming car to capture the lights as well.


Très belle interprétation pour le thème in the street.
J'aime ce moment, on dirait que le temps s'est arrêté.
Bonne utilisation du marquage au sol et excellent focus sur les motards.
Excellente photo bien équilibrée avec une lumière très intéressante.
Bon dimanche.

Ola Annie
In Portugal is very common people say from those who are liked that «it is much better late than never»...wonderful photo, very sharp, with an excellent capture of the misty atmosphere.
Great mood.Thank you for your kind words my friend.
Boa noite, mb

Bonsoir Annie,
Excellente présentation de cette scène de rue avec cette jolie brume,
Bel effect et composition de cette journée de septembre brumeuse.
Belle perpective des poteaux électriques qui s'enfuient lentement dans la brume..
Excellent cliché à travers le pare-brise de l'auto...

Hi Annie,I like your image with the heavy fog,very moody,I too would be a little hesitant to overtake this motorcycle espescially as ones vision is not perfect due to the fog.
I would have liked to compare a normal merging of two Colored images alongside your blending of one Color with one B&W.I like the effect you have achieved here,but difficult to evaluate your special PP work.
Best Wishes

Grandisoe compo et image quelle ambiance mystérieuse la moto et la voiture dans ce brouillard dense qui permet qund même de distinguer les éléments belle rencontre routière avec ce graphsime de fils et de poteaux, splendide.

C'est un payas comme un autre et il faut vivre avec les montagnes.

Bravo et amitié

Hi Annie

The mist adds mood, mystery & atmosphere, as well as a little danger if you are the one who is driving! Good diffused lighting & attractive soft pastel colours. Bon semaine!

Wow... what a fabulous shot Annie! I really love the mist and the light here... great shot!


Wow, fantastic photo Annie. I have done this myself a few times ... taken a shot from the car windshield. But never with results this good.
I love the mist and the way the road and power lines fade off into nothing. And the barely visible headlights! Really nicely composed shot too. Very well done my friend. Hope your winter is starting off okay.

Hi Annie
This is excellent!
Love the foggy atmosphere!
The power cables, the road with its curve and the coming car with light turned on are all amazing!
Very nice indeed

Hello Annie :)

Beautiful composition and her realization, splendid colours and miraculous light!
The fantastic, showy work, I like him very much...congratulations!

I greet warmly.

I really like this shot Annie. It looks to be just plain COLD with the fog, and you've captured the mood well with this one.
I like the couple of spalshes of colour here and there against the mainly grey surrounds... I think the PP is good.


Lovely sense of balance in this shot with the two motorcyclists and the twin headlights. Nice pov withthe curve in the road and the curved centre line. Nicely done

Hi Annie. This is a nice moody shot. I like the lighting and the way your subject stands out from the rest of the shot. Nice work.


Love the mood of this post! Unfortunately we don't get that much fogging nights in the desert. Good dof with nice details. Very well done, tfs.
