"Sunday at the Park"
I like how the path is to the right of the frame and it curves out of the photo. I just want to follow the path. It is also great timing on your part to get the biker in the bit of sunlight instead of the shadows. Looks like a nice morning for a ride. Red helmet adds a splash of color to the little one. Very cute! Hope you get a copy to Vicki! :) Lisa

A nice capture of this young cyclist heading along, a nice lighted road, against the light!
A play with lighting and shadows.
You created a very nice effect, almost a vignette to frame the whole capture.
Very sharp image with fabulous details.
This is a really nice photo; well worth the risk you have taken ;)
For me, her shadow that reaches to the lower right corner is a fine detail contributing to the overall success.

Nice sidelighting with good sharpness & lead in lines & perspective added by the pathway. The cyclist adds a welcome human element. The late afternoon color temperature has warmed the colors, with a nice bias towards red & yellow tones. Tfs!

Bom dia Linda,
This is't a photo, but a poem. Lovely lighting and a great focus.

Lovely light,shade and shadows,I like the way you have burnt the woodland right back, I start overheating about 75, 101 would kill me, my finger would keep sliding off my shutter release.
good use of the vignette. it has given more focus on the bike rider.
your image has a nice 'earthy' colouring to it. how did you acheive it?
hope your weather cools down soon. we've just had a torrential down pour.
Nice work - a good drive-by!! I very much like the isolating effect of the light and composition. As much as I would prefer to see the cyclist coming towards the camera rather than seeing her shot in the back, this is a good piece of work.
Hi Linda,on first reading your notes, I wondered what type of moving vehicle you were on ,as this is a pretty narrow path,then I read on & it made sense,your moving vehicle was a bike, not a car as I first thought.
I like the mood you captured here with the suns rays highlighting part of the grassed area as well as the pathway & the boy cyclist,he sure has long hair for a boy his age? I also like the S curve of the path leading us into the picture,nice use of the available light,vibrant composition.

This has a great mood that's hard to explain, but it's exactly why I race off to the local park to relax on a day off. I guess it's the 'relaxed' daily life that we don't experience often enough. The lighting is beautiful, nice shadows and colors. TFS

I like this image, It is America at it's finest. The park, young ones, and protective mothers (helmets). I love the time of day that this was taken. Just great work.

You really know how to make an average composition turn into a work of art. No offense to the composition. Great processing and tones, very very well done, congrats!
I've lost This one and it is beautiful; the shadow in the street and the wonderful green of the forest as b/g add a magic atmosphere of «fantasy tales». Wonderful mood.
All the best, Jose mb
