Back to India. Indian roads are incredible, what you can see there! On the way to Jaisalmer the traffic was small but from time to time there was something interesting and exotic, like these bikers. I made this photo from the moving car, and they were moving too. Although in such situations the relative speed is not big, I should react quickly. It would be better to leave more space in the lower part. But even like this i find it nice.

A great slice of Indian daily life on the move. The red turbans look splendid against the background greenery. Great colours and clarity.

During my last (latest) journey to India I saw three sikhs together on a motorbike, all wearing differently coloured turbans. But the street was crowded and I noticed them too late to take a picture, which has annoyed me ever since. So this picture comes as some kind of solace. Good light and sharpness, in spite of tthe circumstances. India is fantastic.

Excellent dublle portraiot and too very well coloured with the red color which arise very well. Impression of movment, of rythm, of dynamism very well collected.
Sergiom (68572) 2011-10-19 5:11
Une très belle composition.Le mouvement est bien saisi dans l'espace et la couleur des turbans est superbe. Ce n'est pas la sécurité qui prime dans ces régions.

This is definitely a very good picture, even without more space at the bottom. I like their red eye-catching "crash helmets".
ChrisJ (105419) 2011-10-19 6:08
Lol! Not exactly Hells Angels type of bikers but a fascinating shot nonetheless! Lovethose symmetrical red turbans! Tfs!

Takich kaskow to nie widzialem ;)
Szkoda, ze braklo troche dolu ale kaski nadrabiaja ta strate.

Une scène sympathique et cocasse qui baigne dans des couleurs très fortes.Le cadrage était difficile, c'est pourquoi je suppose le bas de la photo est maladroitement coupé.

Good morning Malgo,
Indeed it is a great quality photo considering the subject and the photographer were both moving ! I understand this was a must : The young man and old man on the moving motor-bike look great. The contrast between the white dresses and red turbans is stunning, and the red is found again on the bike's light and the stand on the road-side !
The trees give the impression of low speed.
I find this a great success even if you cut dow the bottom.
nikkitta (17018) 2011-10-19 19:36
Very good capture, it has a sense of movement that I like, more knowing it was taken from a car
Good colors and contrast
Congrats for being so fast!!

Hello Malgozorta, This an opportunistic shot that you have captured and most of us miss. Excellent synchronization with the speed of the vehicles and your camera. Of course the top hats, or in India, turbans, really jazz up the picture with their bright red colors. Poor grandpa on the rear of the bike looks rather fragile as this bike skips along the road. My son in law is a dirt bike rider, he rides his motor bike, an Austrian KTM, in the Oregon and Washington mountains. I am asking your permission to send this shot to him. He would get a real kick out of it. Thanking you in advance. Warm Regards, Roger

Ces deux bikers ont un superbe casque -) Une excellente photo.
fabianoleite (10095) 2011-10-20 18:15
The white and red of the costumes is very strong, making a good main subject, and a very different view. Good work, congratulations!
macjake (62256) 2011-10-20 19:46
don't worry about the space along the bottom, you have a good excuse as this was taken from a moving vehicle.
great shot for so many reasons, the color, the illumination, the strong pockets of red, the cool looking bike...whats not to love here
excellent shot of daily life in India
s_lush (16134) 2011-10-20 23:36

India must be a real paradise (or Nirvana) for a photographer even the most natural daily scene can be great.
