Pematang Siantar is unique with its public transportation called "becak motor". Becak refers to 3 cycles transportation commonly found in Java and kind of trishaws in Singapore or cyclo in Vietnam. The unique "becak motor" in Siantar uses old BSA motorbike, dated back to year around 1950's to 1960's.
I used panning technique to show the motion of the subject. Sometimes, we want to make our travel pictures looks different, and this technique is only one of it.

Nice panning technique and composition. The only minor critique is the car on the right hand. I think that it's a little bit distraction but for this kind of shot, it is difficult to set up

Nice pan. I would have cropped off the right 1/3 of the picture, to simplify the image (by removing the distracting van)
