When cycling on Sunday, I found a rickshaw coming up by the sea. I shot them in a hurry from the edge of the pavement without using the viewfinder. It's only one shot.
Tech: adjusted levels, cropped, smart sharpen(128%, 0.2, 0), and NeatImage for downsizing.

You did great, Hisashi, believe me for a "grab shot", it's fantatsic - there's just enough sense of movement, and the carriage is nicely placed on the etreme left moving right... Focus did fall on the lights behind more but, you know...shoganai!
I like this very much.

Wow, this shot is really nice! Good reportage with great action, very well placed person and rickshaw. The outline of his silhouette is perfect, it gives the sense of him speeding along. Nice broght colors too.

Great action photo, Hisashi - you not only reacted quickly to the situation but you even came up with an amazingly effective framing to tell the story of the rickshaw guy pulling his customers along the seaside. Well-managed light, good to have space at the right to run into, and interesting graphical patterns provided by the pavement and the lamps in the back. Well done.

Great shot, Hiashi. You've caught the vibrant movement of the rickshaw puller very neatly here. Nice detail too - from the red blanket to the sun's sharp reflection of the cycle's mudguards. Well-captured! Regards,

Hisashi san, welcome back! A really challenging situation you were in, but like how you made the most out of it! I like the sense of movement seen in the raised foot of the rickshaw driver, really makes me feel like they will just whiz by in one more second...

Nice capture. I didn't know these were also in Japan. I thought only in Vietnam/ Malaysia/ China etc. TFS, Gilbert

Nice shot full of joy and motion! Well cropped and composed. Shallower DOF for this moment is preferable (f/11 is toooo high ;> )
but I know you didn't have time to adjust it.
Thanks for sharing.

very nice frame with lots of movement & details...nice colours and a quiet freaky, to be honest, industrial background full of those spotlights & what seem to be power generators...all well seen and executed...cheers, arturo

Nice snap in motion. good expression in everybody.
The shadow, sky and the background is surely enhancing its quality. Thanks for sharing.

That is a very good one as the rickshaw enters the frame this way.
Dynamic and active, and interesting for the lamps background.
I like it

Amusing photo - I am wondering if those kinds of rickshaws are common in Kamakura nowadays, or if this is an exception ?

I think this is the first time I discover your good work;TE is getting tooooooo big.
You had a perfect timing here and managed a great shot.
The rickshaw and this guy are perfect placed and I can see the movement.The background is interesting too with these lamps,the generators and the small stripe of the deep blue sea.A great shot.
