This school boy was in a hurry as he overtook the lady carrying bananas - perhaps he was late!
Hoi An is an UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is 30Km from Danang (Vietnam's fourth largest city)and about halfway down the splendid Vietnam coast. There are colourful markets and small bustling streets. Hoi An is situated in the estuary of the Thu Bon River.

You captured the facial expression of the boy very well. Looked like he was in a such hurry.

Been off TE for a couple of days (sometimes you need a break from here!) but just seen this splendid picture.
Wonderfully colourful and bright, a fine snapshot of daily life in Vietnam and with a lovely strong look of intent on the boy cyclist's face. We can't see much of the lady's face because it's so hidden by her hat and scarf but we can imagine perhaps a look of surprise as she is overtaken by this little road-hog.
Lovely strong light, perfect exposure, fine vibrant colours and excellent details and sharpness.

bello l'accostamento tra il vecchio modo di muoversi e di trasportare, con quello più aggiornato del ragazzo in bicicletta. Una foto dinamica e colorata.

The square format nicely frames the two protagonists concentrating on the action. I like the interaction between the two and the expression on the boy's face, which injects a sense of urgency and dynamism into the composition. All in all a very well presented daily life scene.

Good evening Ann
The young boy is biking hard (see his face) and the lady who wants to cross the street does not hear him. She also hurries to go to the market to sell her fruits.
Good every day situation.

A very fine combination of the traditiponal life with the modern. Both persons add many good colours to the picture and the woman provide an elegant triangular form with her hat as the top above the two baskets.

Ya Hoi An is very good place, I cannot forget my memory--. Very sharp and clear image indeed by close up the main two objects perfectly. Very well balanced proportion of lady and boy due to your deep consideration. Color touch is so nice and comfortable. Thank you for your sharing with your best shot and have a good day!

mi piace il contrasto che hai realizzato all'interno dell'inquadratura con la donna che passa e il bambino in bici.
Buona la resa dei colori e la prontezza del tuo scatto,

Nice street scene with the 2 people well framed. The kid seems to be very concentrated on his byke, looking forward at the same time the woman is looking at him (may be surprised).

The juxtaposition of the lad on a bicycle and the woman taking her crop to the market, especially close-cropped makes an eye catching composition.
Have a good weekend,

Hi ann, nice scene from Hoi An. The woman in typical Vietnamese triangular hat carrying bananas looks so wonderfully exotic.
Hoi An is charming place, I liked it most from Vietnam. Do you know it was "saved" by Polish architect?
