The city of Hamburg has two lovely lakes; Alster and small Alster.
In the middle of the smaller one, there is a huge fountain spraying water high up in the air. Late afternoon, lovely low sunlight, this rainbow was created. I stood their waiting for something interesting to pass by, and after a while this biker comes riding, no hands on the bike, busy with a mobile phone...

I like the different layers in this photo. The silhouettes are lovely, and many of them create a frame around the central part of the scene. The man on the bicycle stands out well against the rainbow, and then we have a glimpse of some buildings in the background. All of the different elements blend together very nicely.

Perfect timing to capture this moment, and I love how vivid the colors of the rainbow are, especially presented against the silhouette of the man. And to top all that, wonderful architecture too. Great capture, thanks for sharing.
All the best

a beautiful daily life scene, some fine daily life poetry. I like very much how the rich and meaningful dark frame encloses the warmly lighted view of the buildings, the lake and the rainbow. All the overlapping elements have been combined superbly, with great timing. The human interest for me is huge, I haven't managed to ride my bike no hands yet, let alone using a mobile at the same time. I admire this cyclist no end and seeing him against this marvellous backdrop is really enchanting. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a good night,

Great shot - well observed and well exposed too with both colours and enough detail in the shadow areas. Lie it!

your wait was definitely worthwhile, you got a great capture of the beautiful moment. Too bad the biker seems unaware of this beauty, cell phones grab all our attention these days:)
Thanks and best wishes

A well executed photo, with the dark rider in the foreground and the bright rainbow in the background. Great timing, exposure and composition.

This is an excellent presentation of this huge fountain and the rainbow with the silhouettes of the tree, the overhanging branches and the biker, all nicely framing it.
Best regards, Paul

This shot is graphic: playing with the dark silhouette of the rider, with the frame inside frame effect built by the trees and in opposition with the rainbow giving an extra piece of colors.

You're capturing well this scene by a good composition and excellent tone, so it's interesting and impressive to see the tasteful scene in which have kept the combination of fountain with rainbow, the biker with silhouette who stopping and doing mobile phone at the shore of a river, and classic building in back. And, leaves that hang from above draw out an additional good effect in this image.

I've been in this place several times:)! You got a good shot with the almost silhouette of the biker with the rainbow in background and the tree branches framing him. Good that you didn't miss the opportunity!
