I like that photo very much. The first thing I noticed is the beautiful light. I assume it's late in the afternoon. The orange glow is very peaceful and contrasts well with the people on the left. Second, The bike rider adds some movement to the photo, which otherwise would have none. The bicyclist also contrast old with new (the high rises) and the light just hitting the bike rider is beautiful. Third, the obvious curves are very pleasing to the eye.

Overall, this is a very well done photo with many reasons to make it a very successful shot! Clearly, this is not a random shot!

Congratulations

Faved...

Beautiful afternoon light...!
Great grounded combo...
of old and new...

Well planned selfshot...!
Rather than standing...
wawing to us...like a maniac...
You managed...to block the traffic...
Set up your camera...trigger it...
run forward...jump on the bike...
and click...!
Precisely in the middle...
craving to be...center of attention...!

Khuram...it is not your town...PUT IT BACK...!
you have to share with many...!
Yes...you have shares...bonds...obligations...
values...to be treated with care...!

After the bike...I envision...
a small hoovercraft...
puttering along the road...
then lift off...speding up to a heli platform...
on the blue building...!

Greetings Khuram...Great picture...Jakob.

And this is why I always carry my camera with me at all times.
Who knows when you might strike gold - would you believe that this was taken while crossing the road on my way to pickup groceries from Carrefour? :D

It's just a little camera used for wide-screen cinematography that produces an image approximately ten times larger than that from standard 35 mm film. :lol:
It was recently used for the movie The Dark Knight Rises. :nod:
