Kampot is a town in southern Cambodia, which houses quite a large expat community (including the good, the bad and the ugly). With plenty of old French colonial architecture and a lovely setting along the river, it is a great place to spend a couple of days.
Cyclo is a small-scale local means of transport, also known by a variety of other names such as bike taxi, velotaxi, pedicab, bikecab or trishaw. They used be a very common sight in many cities in South, Southeast and East Asia, but these days most of them have been replaced by tuktuks, motorbikes or just plain taxi's. A pity, really.

So a punchy picture!
The way you framed is very original and the contrasting colors make the photograph attractive.

Hello Benny ,
Un cliché très attractif , dans sa simplicité . LEs contrastes de couleur sont épatants . Dans un premier temps , le petit morceau en haut à gauche me génait un peu , mais finalement , ce n'est pas mal du tout .

yes, it is the best way for local transportation... Without any pollution to the city. We should...
Here we get another nice one. Full with graphism and contrasting colours. Razor sharp image with maximum details. A nice minimal presentation. Tfs.

What an original cropping for this street scene! Absolutely wonderful visual effect achieved due to the strong color combination and contrast. Very well observed and done. Like it! TFS.

your good eye for shapes, lines and colors is illustrated again here. Red against yellow, lines against curves...Works very well for me.
I'm kind of on a fence with the bit at the top left corner though...I might have cropped it out but I understand your reasons for leaving it be after reading your reply to Denis.
PS: never actually occurred to me but it appears you can speak French, can't you? If so next time I'll write the whole thing in French ;-)

I nice original view of a cyclo, I like that you have only shown a part of it in detail. Of course the yellow background is great and makes the perfect contrast for the cyclo's details to stand out against it.

Salut Benny !
Une joli composition de la rue !
J'aime le contraste des couleurs et cette petite plante qui se cache derrière le vélo !
Beau travail :)
