Today I visited an art exhibition in Cologne. Late in the evening I boarded the train for home. On the way I had to change twice.
At the transfer station in the town of Siegen, I saw the young woman waiting on the platform. With backpack and bicycle helmet she sat motionless on the bench. But the special was their face mask.

bien choisi pour ce noir et blanc ; beaucoup de matières différentes et contraste

All the elements in this picture add something interesting. The lady in the mask makes a very nice diagonal in the FG. The quality of the b/w image is outstanding with a wonderful tonal range and super clarity.
Kind Regards, Ann

fascinating shot of this well equipped cyclist who seems to be in a meditative state. When I travel to South East Asia and during my trip to Africa I often saw Asian tourists (Japanese mainly but also Chinese) wearing masks as if the air away from home is dangerous. B&W works well with all the chrome and shiny paint. She does look like a ninja.Regards. Klaudio.

You have the elements of a true street photographer here, the b&W, the slightly quirky moment, the ability to 'see' things.

3 different attitudes while waiting the train, and this lady lying on the bench in the diagonal of the image is well framed.

This is an interesting example of what could be found if you keep your eyes open and a talent for seeing compositions with your inner eyes. The woman's special look and the diagonal created by her stretched out body are the most interesting features here, but her bicycle and the two men in the background are also important parts of the composition.

Black and white heightens the mood. The image is cleverly cropped to put the emphasis on the mysterious woman and her bicycle. At the same time we also have the benefit of glimpsing the two men in the background between whom there seems to be some sort of interaction.

La pause qui rafraichit. Cela lui permet d'être seule dans son monde. J'aime l'utilisation du noir et blanc pour cette composition.

This is a really nice cpature, the lady is indeed fascinating, and its like a study of her, and her bike. However, the people in the background add great interest too, especially the man leaning against the signpost. The train makes a perfect backdrop. Fantastic choice for Black and white.
All the best

Excellently captured image.Beautiful mono, I also like the two people at the background, they made a contrast of the 'motionless' foreground.

You're capturing well this daily life by a good angle and excellent B/W tone/clarity, so it's impressive to see the transfer station that the train is stopping and the passenger waiting for train at platform. It's interesting that a bicycle can be extended into a station yard. A woman sitting on the bench seems to rest here, and I guess chilly for her face mask.
