Yup, really nice exposure..
Looked like those old b/w photos but not quite..
i've done a simillar shot like this ...but obviously it's not as good as this
Kudos to u there!
Did u do any sort of digital manipulations in this photo?
Hey, this is the continuum of Via Alfani, that cross with Via Cavour...when have you been there?
Seems like the amount of motorbikes we have looks very high for foreigners..doesn't it?
I'm one of those who use bike (or feet)...
Good shot, though the fact that the place is so familiar makes the photo less charming to me...
Truly an amazing perspective, orchestrating all of these evident and suggested street lines into a stable composition, with a dynamic tempo of receeding into the vanishing point. Where appears to be a tilt, there is none, once we glance at the corners of the image and realize that all plane intersections are perpendicular.
I am actually in the favour of the bold contrast and the futuristic over exposure... to me the light blast coming from the depth of the photo, adds an underlying notion of suspense, since we are denied the insight into what awaits the cyclist at the end of the street...and washing out the detail of buildings in that section, also helps focus the eye of the viewer more on the focal point of the cyclist in question.
Not only are the motorized bikes alligned opposite the traditional man powered bicycle, but also the modern architecture featuring McDonalds fortifies the domain of motorcycles, while more classical, old stone buildings support the realm of the old times to the right. Truly an interesting play of light and dark, and a stunning capture of that metaphysical boarder line inbetween the old, and the dictating trends of the new technology advancements.
Nice to see so many two wheeled vehicles. I'm a big fan of anything that rolls on two wheels - and there aren't enough of them in North America.
I really enjoy the perspective that you've chosen here - the converging lines in the top right hand side of the piece keep things interesting. While the shot seems a little unbalanced (exposure wise - where you have dark shadows and washed out areas), I'm glad that you caught the shape and form of the cyclist - everything there is crisp and clear which is important!
