Hola Maria, my today's neighbor
You post a picture from France and I post one from Argentina
A nice action shot here, well taken with much dynamism. I must admit that I do not know which building it is !
Have a nice WE, best regards

Merci pour ta première critique de l'année commençant par moi, c'est très gentil, et oui je suis belge, Didi est a je pense 600km de chez moi!!!
Jolie prise de la dame habillée sexy sur son vélo, mais le principal est de faire du sport :-)
c'est ce que je fait 2 fois par semaine 1 h de marche dans le bois, et 2 fois aussi de la gym intense de 40m',
Bravo pour cette belle présentation
marina7 (8027) 2014-01-03 12:24
great "action" shot.. You caught that lady amazingly well despite her going full throttle:)) I do like your sports greetings, hope for good weather this year as well.
All the best to you and your loved ones!
williewhistler (11266) 2014-01-03 12:24
the lady appears to be so carefree,I hope that with so little protection reached her destination safely.
She certainly stands out nicely here against the dark BG.
Best wishes for 2014.

Amazing capture with perfect pov and timing !
A scene full of vitality.
TFS and have a nice weekend

very nice the snapshot with the lonely cyclist to enjoy her stroll in the empry street.I like the light and the colour management as the play of the light and shadows.
I wish you a Happy and Prosperous New Year,Danos

Nice action photo, are you trying to say we spend too much time on the computer. Okay, I agree, at work and at home to, then there is iphone, ipad, laptops, video games...etc. We need to go out side and enjoy the outdoors. This is the year of the winter Olympic too. Good skating, take up skiing, snow shoes walking...:) Okay, not in Argentina, it is your summer. Go hiking, swimming...or just simply soaking up the sun.
Love the inside of Musuem Ordsay. I posted a picture of the clock in the museum with the Sacred Heart in it.

Nice action shot of the lady cyclist. The effort of riding against the stiff wind is evident on her face and arm muscles. Her fair complexion and white vest contrasts the dark BG very well. Thanks for sharing and wish you a Very Happy and Healthy 2014 as well.

this photo immediately caught my eye - guess why? well, for two reasons: it's a very gold capture of the moment, and - strange as it might seem - I have a similar photo in my gallery (if you browse the "Switzerland section" you'll see it) :)
I really don't recognise this building in the background (I did not spend much time in Paris so I may not have been there... or not remembered it well), but I like the effect that it creates: a cold blue-grey background against which the lady cyclist stands out perfectly in the sunshine :)
Happy New Year to you - and wishes of many new interesting trips and photos!:)

You have summed up a resolution for me, less time in front of the PC and more time out and about (probably taking photos, haha). Great capture of this lady on her bike, with an excellent sense of motion and beautiful light!
A happy and healty new year to you also!
All the best
imageme (1092) 2014-01-04 7:27
Hi Maria, Beautiful street scene in Paris. The lady on the bicycle is just captured in the perfect moment and the motion is frozen perfectly with proper exposure. Great sharpness and details despite the harsh sunlight. Thank for sharing and Happy New Year
npecanhuk (59020) 2014-01-04 7:35
Me gusta mucho esta foto sobretodo por la idea que tu has tenido relativa al desporto en general!
Nitidez, exposición, colores, punto de vista escogido y composición excelentes!
Gracias por compartir,
Perdón por mis errores en la lengua española!
aleXundar (1256) 2014-01-04 8:18
This is a very good action shot. Her tenacious struggle to complete the lap in time, is nicely captured. Great colors and superb timing.
subhendu_bagchi (24381) 2014-01-04 8:41
a nice photograph indeed. The cyclist is looking nice in action. Good action photo with sharp details and beautiful light. Great shot. Tfs and Happy New Year.
Miguel82 (17317) 2014-01-04 9:45
A cyclist lady in Paris city center during summer time, good record Maria, too much traffic jam, there are more and more people using two wheelers, expensive prices of the subway and bus subscriptions too, all the best, warm regards
CLODO (27680) 2014-01-04 11:02
I am jalous of your picture, so clever with the lighted subject against the dark background, and we feel the movement. 7 months to wait to be able to take a similar one.
have a great year!
jcpix (9298) 2014-01-05 7:39
Salut cher Maria,
Something from Paris as a symbol of the new year...why, I couldn't agree more! :) I get on my bike from time to time, but it never seems to go anywhere, what's the deal?? jaja Indeed, a fine way to ring in new life and opportunity by getting active. I like what you've done here to convey that sentiment.
There's a good sensation of motion and determination in this shot, and the lighting couldn't be better to separate this cyclist from the background. Good timing as well, it looks as if she's in a race with the taxi in the background. Hope your holidays were merry and bright, all the best in 2014 mi amiga!
abmdsudi (36320) 2014-01-05 17:57
Cycling is indeed a healthy exercise! and you caught the lady in time and it's dynamic. The background isn't blurry, thus the scene appears more realistic. To me, the way you have frame your shot is quite good by placing the accent on the cyclist, as the tip of the side-walk leads consequently, I understand why this is your favourite shot. Great light & shadows, clarity and overall contrast. Excellent shot, tfs
mkamionka (28422) 2014-01-07 9:05
I am not sure if I get it. Why is it a symbol of a New Year?
In any case the face of the biker is fantastic and I guess it must be fun to bike with high speed and having mini skirt. Fun for both the biker and people watching.
carlo62 (23702) 2014-01-07 15:33
la signora sembra fuggire dalla mostra che si sta celebrando dentro al famoso museo....forse non si sente all'altezza.
Grazie per gli auguri, che ricambio, anche se in ritardo, ma credo che gli auguri vadano bene in ogni stagione :)
Bella foto d'inizio anno, una foto che ci mostra quanta grinta dobbiamo mettere per attraversarlo tutto.
Di nuovo buon anno a te
cornejo (25499) 2014-01-08 4:53
Hola María, estupenda foto de esta señora pasando a toda velocidad por delante del famoso museo de París, una interesante imagen llena de belleza y energía positiva que desprende la elegante dama. Muy buena e interesante captura perfectamente tomada en este interesante trabajo, mis felicitaciones amiga mía, gracias por compartir.
Buen día y feliz resto de semana.
Un cordial abrazo.

Ciao Maria, nice scene with lovely woman on bike, wonderful colors, excellent clarity and splendid light, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio
Didi (53333) 2014-01-08 11:05
Intéressante mesure spot sur la cycliste, cela donne un bel arrière plan plus sombre qui met en valeur le sujet.
Je reconnais la gare du Nord, d'habitude le trafic est dense par ici
ourania (22744) 2014-01-08 12:36
Hola querida Maria,
I haven't visited Paris and can't recognize the building but the scene with the lady riding her bike is extremely familiar, since this is my means of transport on Leros. I must look like this in the summer, watching the street ahead while trying to keep my skirt as decent as possible:) I like very much the dynamism and naturalness of your picture, the lady is wonderfully illuminated by the sunlight and stands out so well against the dark, shady background. The sense of depth and the harmonious chromatic palette are superb too. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day and a wonderful year!

Sorry to have been absent for a while. I will explain! But first, what a great shot -- and my feeble memories of Paris say this looks like the Gare du Nord... but my last visit to Paris was in 1978.
I have a project going and want your input, as this is the best way I have (so far, anyway) of reaching you.
As you may have seen in some of my earlier posts, there is an ever-growing collection of statues along the bayside walk in La Paz, BCS, Mexico. I have not been able to find -- in English or Spanish -- any comprehensive guide that identifies the artists or provides any other basic info, so I want to create one.
We visited La Paz in December and I shot >1,000 frames of these artworks. Since our return, I have been reviewing them and processing my favorites. Today, I have posted the first cull on a website and I humbly ask you for any insight, opinions, or critiques you might offer.
I acknowledge that we live in a very busy world and I thank you in advance for any time you kindly lend to this project. Do not feel like you need to comment on or even look at every image. Likewise, please remember that I know we are friends and I have a thick skin, so there is no reason to be diplomatic -- let me know what you honestly think of these images and, as always, if you see a way they could be improved, I want to hear your ideas!
With only two exceptions, nothing has been added or removed from these images. Specifically, the stars in the sky in the images of the Mantarraya are the same light that was captured in the original exposure, although I admit they have been accentuated in post-processing. The exceptions? In one shot of the Ballena, and one shot of the Vaquitas, I have freed the sculpture from its post to allow the art to swim or fly away!
So check them out when you have the time, please? http://fotos.estudiochispa.com/?page_id=77 Also, feel free to forward this note and the URL to any of our other friends.
Peace, love, and creative exposures to you!

Interesting composition, with the attractive female biker cruising Paris in the sunlight, with a grey/blue backdrop of classical architecture.
adramad (33584) 2014-01-09 10:36
Lo primero desearte un muy Feliz 2014, para ti y familia.
Despues comentar la foto, que resulta muy vital con esta mujer en su bici, muy bien iluminada por el sol, que hace que se destaque como en relieve, con el fondo del edificio en sombras, sin duda la imagen sirve para ilustrar, uno de los buenos propositos, que siempre nos hacemos al comenzar un año, como es hacer ejercicio para mejorar nuestra salud.
Buena nitidez y luminosidad, con un agradable colorido.
Pasa un buen dia.
Saludos muy cordiales.

this year I intend to star back go to work using my bike. That is a nice photo to represente the new year. However as a Brazilian I on't like the idea of have a World Soccer Cup here, since the government is spending lots of money and other important area as health, education and transports were forgotten in the process.
Nice dynamic photo.
