The Need for Speed

Anyone else having trouble with accessing the "view all Photoblog images" page?

Resolution starting to go here due to my cropping, but I quite liked the crop anyway.

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!

I really like the contrasts of this shot - both visually and conceptually

@Art Monkey: Thank you AM!

Manuela Photography from Hainburg, Germany

Very good concept contrast!

Jen from Jessup, United States

Wonderful perspective and the cropping is good!!
I had issues with the page yesterday but didn't check today, the thumbnails weren't showing up.

@Jen: Still can't get to the whole group's photo page. Thanks for stopping by Jen!

In response to your emphatic YES! Nice capture again...the foolery of using an umbrella as a helmet...

@reflected concepts: Just checked; still seems the same. There's a time and a place for umbrellas, I believe, and they aren't riding a bicycle on a sunny day.

Stu from Kyoto, Japan

Ha! Nice capture D. What a contrast. Good timing to shoot this one.

regarding the inability to access the "view all Photoblog images" page, i have the same problem - emailed AM3 team and they replied that they are aware of the problem and are working ot resolve it asap

i have to agree with the comments above - it's a great contrasting shot in terms of colurs and concept!

good job!

@Kairospix: Thank you K! Got a message today too from Jason that they are working on it.

DTW from Orlando, United States

Yep still having some issues but it's getting better. They probably need a few more days to work out the bugs. Great shot. Seeing the people with umbrellas on a bicycle always makes me laugh.

@DTW: Thanks DTW. I think the umbrella must be to protect delicate skin from the sunlight, as it was a nice sunny day!

Fine justaposition of contrasts which give an atmospheric sense of the street scene.

@tengtan: Thank you tengtan.

Anup from Bangalore, India

Makes me :-)

This is a nice capture! I like the umbrella.

@Lucca: Thank you Lucca.

Alexandra from Veszprem, Hungary

Nice shot! I like the contrast.

@Alexandra: Thank you Alexandra.

Sidonie from Sydney, Australia

I'd like some technical tips on how to cycle with an umbrella up, like your foreground subject here - nice contrast of fast and slow.

@Sidonie: #1 - do it on a sunny day, so there is less chance of getting wet.

Thanks Sidonie!

Mike Cash from Kiryu, Japan

I love the symbolism here; the old struggling to keep up with the new. This shot would retain its strength no matter how bad the resolution got.

@Mike Cash: Cheers Mike!
