The region where I live is called the
Muensterland, lying close to the Netherlands.
A flat landscape ideal for bicycle tours and
with thousands km´s of bicycle path´s on
Picture is taken with my wife´s Olympus C5050.

I love all the sweeping lines into the frame. Excellent to catch the cyclist coming towards you; the splash of red works well.

Guten Tag Hermann
I like the curving riverbank & superb color & sharpness. The symmetry of the bike path & canal is nice. Excellent sharpness & tfs!

Nice composition with the colored curves: the red way, the green grass and the blue water.

Ik zag U vanmorgen al langs fietsen.
Simpele maar hele mooie foto. Lijkt me wel mooi om daar te fietsen. Goede compositie.

Hi Hermann, I like you composition to have the bike road curvedly around this picture. It is nice to see the blue, green and the red-brown colors along the river. Nice perspective view and good catch of the bike rider straight toward your lens. A nice and enjoyable environment.

Lovely landscape! The photo is very well composed with the trees on the left hand side and the river on the right side. There was a fine light too and the cyclist is a good addition!

Hi Hermann, again the contrast of the person with the background makes a great picture here. I like how you composed it with the road taking our eyes right to him. Maybe I would like him just a little closer so we can see his face, but this has its magic as well. Tali

Guten Abend Hermann,
This is an almost Dutch polder scene. I love the 6 sweeping curves here, they make it a lovely culture-landscape graphism. Due to the nice light and the biker with his contrasting jacket, it has also a ulpifting quality. Very nice and pleasing work!
Have a nice weekend,

The title fits so well with this nice graphical perspective and enquadrement view. Well choosen your point of view at left with the bike road at the left aand the cyclist in a direct approach to your lens. Repetitive curved patterns in different colors giving geometric and graphic effect. A nice and well done composition.The red shirt is also a color must to this good job.
Very well seen and composed. Congratulations and have a nice weekend. Best Regards.

colors are so strong and nice.Excellent composition.
Have a nice weekend

A nicely composed image giving us that fine and flat landscape - the red man on bicycle just great as extra element - thanks for sharing.

un coin que j'ai déjà visité et que j'apprécie beaucoup, avec ses jolies campagnes.
Les trois courbes qui se cotoient, rouge, verte et bleue, forment une esthétique agréable sous un ciel qui invite à la balade, que ce soit à pied ou à vélo.
Un très bon cadrage.
Bon week-end à toi.

Alors comme cela, on utilise l'appareil photo de sa femme (avec sa permission, j'espère !) ;o))
Comme il doit être agréable de rouler à bicyclette sur terrain plat et de regarder autour de soi la nature qui s'éveille.
Je remarque un petit vent à voir les vaguelettes sur le canal.
Très bonne composition.

Typically Dutch landscape ;-)
Colours and composition are very nice, and the man on the bike adds really something to it.
john_c (24662) 2006-04-01 10:53
A well composed shot that resonates of early spring. I like the POV looking down the path, with the lines of the canal to follow as well. I am intrigued to hear how extensive the paths are for walking and cycling. Are these mainly public rights of way on private land or completely public paths over public land? In North America there is surprisingly little in this regard, except roads through wilderness and trails in parks...The cyclist warms the scene. Very well captured.

Ik houd zeer veel van deze mooie maar eenvoudige foto, excellent diepte en goed perspectief, met de mooie curve in de het kanaal, prachtig hoe de fietser is toegevoegd.
Prettig weekend gewenst,

Hi Hermann, LOL the note I just bought an oly for Madame Terror ;-) A nice photo following this curvy perspective, with the coming cyclist it looks very jhm-esque greetings from Kyoto JY
