I have many things that I like in this composition but rather hard to put them in words. The whole scene is pristine and reflects some kind of easiness in the morning. The road tuning to the left takes care of the perspective. The bicycles which I used to see - all steel made in Nottingham, England still widely used there - Amazing! The house and animals by the roadside making this a superb shot.
Have a wonderful weekend and best regards,

I like this simple image of daily life in India. Pixels seem somewhat strange though.
Thanks for sharing.

This is one of your best compositions. Due to circumstances we can't always choose which elements to add or to remove from our photos, especially PJ type of images. Sometime the story being told is more important than the minor technical details. This photo of yours has both elements. It tells a story of everyday life and has outstanding composition also. This is a first-rate photograph!

Nice shot of a lovely countryside, the 3 cyclists are fun to watch... I like the relaxed atmosphere, no one seems in a hurry !
Is it that cold over there ? In TN around Mamallapuram, some people call this time the "snow season", but it is at least 28 degrees and very humid and sticky !
Great sunshine too, though, should not complain...

What can I say? I like it but I don't know why. I like the perspective created by the road and the way you positioned the bikers. At the first glance I thought of the huge sky you can see in the plains or from top of the mountains. This might be because of the low horizon line. The frame is great but I prefer the previous signature. Thanks for sharing!
With Friendly Regards,

Good use of the road as pespective which also brings in good depth. Good use of the principle of three here. Balancing of the shot well done with the hut on the left. I wish you could have pressed the shutter a fraction of a second later to have the third cyclist (one with his back towards us) clear from the one at the centre. Otherwise well done!

good one. what i like is the longer focal length that is used (probably, yes). good framing and composition.
greetings from Trieste,

Hi Ayan. Nice capture. Good sharpness and colour. Well composed, the roadway leads the eye into the frame and the cyclists are balanced by the house on the left. Thanks for sharing.
