I took this photo in Mertasari beach in Sanur, during an International Kites Festival..
I took in low angle coz I'd like to put the silhouette of the man with his bike in the foreground, and composed it while the "octupus kite" fly above him..
Hope you like it.

A photo I like a lot. It is a surprizing scene and a very graphic picture with the point of view agains the sun drawing the silhouette of the man and the bicycle.
The flying octopus was perfectly placed in the frame with the curve of its legs to complete the scene.

Well captured, well composed and a good photograph with dreamy image!
It keeps an attractive image about composition between the silhouette of the man with his bike and the ground in the foreground, funny kite and the sky dyed to evening sunthe sky, I think.
And, excellent color tone.

Bonita toma, la silueta de la persona con la bicicleta y la cometa en forma de pulpo complementan divinamente la puesta de Sol.
Un saludo desde España.

Excellent shot indeed: the silhouette of the man with the bike stands out weel against the setting sun. The kite is fascinating and thanks to the transparency it is enhanced by the late afternoon light.
A lovely picture.-

An interesting sunset scene, with a transparent kite flying over the silhouette of a man walking with his bike. Nice warm hues and interesting graphism.

Cette photo est très réussie. Le monde du rêve et de la poésie est tout entier dans cette composition. Bien joué avec les transparences et les silhouettes sur ce ciel lumineux du soir.

This is one of the best pictures Ive seen for long time Yoga,here is perfect control of the light and composisi,evrything and everybody is there at the right moment.
For some raison Indonesia is not a populair country on TE and thats a pitty because theres plenty of surprises overthere.
Horas dan sehat2 Pak.!

this is a great picture that made me laugh. Fantastic, not even mentionning all great technical aspects of the shot mentionned in previous critiques.
Congratulations for being at the right place with the "alien" :)

I am really impressed by this photograph and I am not the one who is easy to be impressed. Light is simply marvelous here and so is the superb composition of the picture!
