Sulla strada che daa delhi porta a Jaipur, ho visto questo uomo in bicicletta in un campo di mostarda e ho pensato bene di scattare anche se lui non sembrava troppo contento di essere il mio soggetto fotografico, ho usato una lente da 400 mm a focale fissa.
On the road that goes from delhi to Jaipur, I saw this man on a bicycle in a field of mustard and I thought to shoot even though he did not seem too happy to be my photographic subject, I used a lens of 400 mm fixed focal length .

amazing vivid shot and portrait. Yes, his displeasure shows but that only adds contrast to this jolly bright composition. I like your precise focus on the man, maybe you shouldn't have sharpened his contours so much because his figure looks a bit as if merged from some other photo in photoshop. Other than that I find it great.
Have a great weekend!

Un bel ritratto rubato in questo splendido campo di fiori gialli, hai fatto bene.

una bella passeggiata in bici con contorno fiorito.
Sembra che "Merckx" ti abbia visto, ma prosegue imperterrito per la sua strada, dove contrasta con il giallo meravigliosamente.

Ciao caro Valter,
No, he doesn't seem to be too happy to be photographed! But you must have been quite a long way away from him with that (?new) long lens of yours. How did he managed to cycle through that crop of mustard without damaging it?
A very striking photograph with lovely light and colours and superb details and sharpness on the man amidst this lovely field of yellow.

The man captured in the mid of this yellow field looks very original and made the scene really eye catching one. Very well seen and spotted. Perfectly executed with superb sharpness and clarity. Like it!

Wonderful picture countryside Valter, I like the mustard field around the main character
Without his presence I can't guess that there is a pathway inside of the field, from that pov

cycling through such a dense mustard field? To tough work indeed. Can feel the width of this path. You composed it superbly with excellent light and colours. Nicely focused on him to isolate him from the beautifully yellow background. Superb work. Tfs.

Hello Valter - The man does look displeased doesn't he? Who knows perhaps he had a flat tyre which made the going tough ;) In any event the sea of mustard with a cyclist riding through it makes for a very unusual shot and I like what I see! Have a great weekend. Rosemary

The main part of the photo is fantastic and slightly absurd. The man with the bicycle in the middle of the yellow field looks great. So it's a pity that the blurred area in the background is less beautiful. There was, of course, not much you could do about it, neither on the spot nor by cropping afterwards. I like this picture in any case but the impact would have been even greater if the field had covered the entire view.

happy or not he looks really nice surrounded by the yellow mustard shrubs.And the presence of an human was crucial for the scene as it would be looked too empty without him(even if the mustard field alone looks delightful).
Excellently composed and also timed scene(his unhappy facial expression is also very distinct part of the scene).
Wish You a nice sunday

Hi Valter !!
I like the photo and the contrast between the man and the flowers.
I do not think that he is unhappy..... to me he is indicating ... surprise.... that you found him interesting enough to take his photo.
I also like the " out of focus " in front and behind...... it highlights the subject.
Have a nice week end

Un air sévère vers toi....mais une belle photo dans ce champs de fleurs jaunes, voila pourquoi j'hésite de prendre des personnes, une fois une dame c'est fâchée sur moi au Maroc et une autre fois un garçon au Mexique, depuis je n'ose plus trop :-)

Caught by suprise! It's an excellent, an eye catching compo, so well detailed superbly and he ideally situated and stands out amongst the sea of yellow. Brightness is subtle in rich colouring. Great capture of daily life here, Congrats

Hi valter, he indeed doesn't seem happy with you taking a photo of him. and why? usually Indians like photos. maybe it is something wrong with him being there? I can imagine you with your big camera and long lens. Just a story... beautiful mustard field.

Un momento decisive. Non ho mai visto una scena cosi. Un lavoro difficile per questa ciclista. Mi piacciono molto le strutture e colori vibranti. L'uomo ha dato un buon contrasto tra I colori gialli. Ottimo lavoro, passa una bella giornata.

Amazing capture with a yellow carpet as background.
TFS and best regards

You're capturing well this scene by a good composition, a good focus and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the man in yellow mustard field. The whole is balanced well by a good arrangement and beautiful color combination.
