These girls were happily cycling along the beach on a late afternoon. The temperature was perfect, the light warm and the sea air fresh. A little piece of delight in this tropical paradise

Hi Wanda. Looks like a colourful and easy going spot. The girls add a lovely splash of colour and elegance. Nice light on the thatched roof and palms. Best wishes. Klaudio.

Great shot! It's difficult to have a sharp picture especially when their is motion in it. I like the brightness and the color of the photo as well. It's such a beautiful picture reflecting a great weather and the simplicity in life!

an attractive daily life scene, full of delight and peacefulness. I like very much the way you placed the moving bicycle at the start of the long perspective that unfolds an interesting scenery and shows us the route the two girls are going to follow. The details are vibrant, the colours mild and lovely. I also like the moderate warmth and brightness of the lighting as well as the lightness of the bike on the white ground that gives no shadow. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,

Oh oh sweet memories here !
Remember this beach and all the bikes cycling on it
not very good for swimming but many opportunities with the kids, the fishermen, the ladies burying coconuts and those cultivating algae
Bravo, have a nice sunday

Hi dear Wanda
Greatly poetic image presenting African coast so well.
Perfectly balanced framework shot in reasonable format. Outstandingly sharp and clear in the details and getting nice warm daylight, amazing and marvelous!
All the best and have a beautiful Sunday! TAKERO

C'est une belle prise, que ces deux femmes à vélo sur la plage. Les vêtements colorés contribuent à l'atmosphère exotique de la composition. Un très bel endroit.

Natural and simple life, joy and happiness with almost nothing, the sweetness of the colors adds to this scene, where the colored saree and veil are eye catching, as the position of the main subject in the image.

Isn't it difficult to cycle on a beach, one would think that the bike would get stuck in the sand.
Amazing scenery on Zanzibar though with this forest of palm trees and the thatched house in the background.
have a great time

I lived "by the Indic ocean several years...so that you can realize that this image "says" something to me despite the outstanding framing and compo.

wet seaweeeeed on white sand, detached houses of hay and locals on the beach: someone put a photo from zanzibar? the light was sweet indeed, and i can feel the laidback atmosphere. yet, i find zanzibar a bit overrated as a paradise: the paradise should have less low tides with less seaweed. don't you think :)

this photo deserves really good marks for its great quality as well as for nice and cheerful content. The cycling girls make colorful point of interest in the corner while little bit more muted surroundings create pretty background for them.
Well spotted and executed.

I have the feeling this is a really beautiful Island! Here we cannot see the ocean, but the scene is so nice and peaceful, with the two girls riding the bike along the sand and all those palm trees in background. The colouful clothes of the driver really stand out. It's a nice daily scene!
