With travel plans set for next week, I thought i'd get in the mood by re-viewing some photos from my last European Holiday.
This scene I remember well. Its taken in Krakow Poland. Perhaps not the typical Krakow scene, but thats the point :)
What I remember most about this photo isn't the large Ferris Wheel in the bg or the water reflections...it was how Hungry I was!
For some reason we couldn't get breakfast that morning. By early afternoon I was so hungry I almost ran down to the bike lane there to chew on some legs!
Anyways, we found some food not too long after - which was good news for the passing cyclists :)
Hope you enjoy this one

Bravo pour cette prise de vue très réussie. Le choix vertical est excellent pour valoriser la grande roue et les personnages à bicyclette.
Très bonne journée.

Perhaps not the typical Krakow scene,but indeed an interesting and beautiful scene,perfectly captured, framed and composed!

bellissimo taglio verticale per poter comprendere la ruota e il suo riflesso insieme ai due uomini in bici che ci offrono un senso di tranquillità e pace.

Ha! Ha! Craig, that's what is good about photographs, they rekindle strong memories!
This is a strangely incongruous photograph; the cyclists aren't what you would naturally link with a large Ferris wheel! However, it is a delightfully composed photograph, with a strong f/g triangle and focal images, abstract reflections and good links with the b/g.
Have a great w/e,

Clever framing, excellent timing. One that will bring back many happy memories for you. Excellent technical presentation. Bonne voyage!

lovely scene from Krakow. I have studied there for 5 years, I love this town. Interesting composition, I won't say anything new here stating that you have a great eye. The bikers add a very nice touch to the geometric pattern: there are plenty of lines and of course a repeated element of the circle. The guy in yellow T-shirt seems to stare at you...
Very well seen and captured.
Have a great weekend,

J'aime beaucoup le lien entre les roues de bicyclettes et la grand roue en arrière plan. J'image est profonde et le cadrage parfait.Une très bonne idée derrière cette photo.

una Cracovia diversa dalla solita che siamo abituati a vedere, ma non per questo meno bella.
Anche in questa foto appare tutta la tua classe: nitidezza di grande livello, composizione e taglio perfetti, colori dosati a perfezione.
Un'altra delle tue proposte sempre belle e originale e per questo ancor più apprezzabili.
Ciao e buon fine settimana.
P.S. - Il 20 e il 21 maggio sono per me un periodo di grande impegno perchè prossime alla scadenza della presentazione dei bilanci delle società che attualmente sto seguendo.
Spero di potermi liberare per incontrarti (mi farebbe molto piacere) ma non ne sono certo.
Non parlo inglese (non ho mai avuto occasione di studiarlo) ma mi arrangio in parte con il francese (tu lo parli?).

No geometry this time (aside form the wheels and horizontals) but an image that reminds us that composition is everything. Well observed, Have a good weekend.

Nice, dynamic composition. Very good colors and perspective. That is not typical view of Krakow, but it's very intersting.
rychem (42610) 2014-05-02 9:16
Krakow is a very old town and most tourists take photos of Wawel, the royal castle, and you have taken the present life, bravo

I have to say that your photos always call for attention among the 18 thumbnails of a page because they usually, even as small as that, look so much better than most of the others. Everything here, from the ferris wheel through the parallel green areas to the bikers show that you know how to spot the right shot and how to compose it.
PS In Turkey you will find no lack of food :-).

two photos for the price of one! well, even the pink building back there would do. so, it's three for one :) don't eat legs when we meet, please.

I must admit, cannibalism was the last thing I expected to read of when I clicked on your post, but hey, as a fan of horror films I believe there is always a place for a bit of rampant random zombie attacks! And what a cool place to do it, I like all these wheels, the bikes, the ferris wheel and the painted bike on the path. I like that the guy in yellow is looking straight at your lens too, perhaps he was able to read your hungry thoughts. Did he speed off just after you took this by any chance?? Haha, great shot, I really like the composition on this.

Very eye-catching picture, with excellent sharpness, exposure, colors, slim black borders, chosen pov and, special regards to the great composition!
TFS - congrats,
saxo042 (37966) 2014-05-03 8:14
Many wheels here, at least eight if you count reflections and painted wheels. A good theme for thing capture.
mesutilgim (97478) 2014-05-03 12:55
Wheels and wheels ! Perfect observed and captured.
TFS and have a nice weekend

Hi Craig, original composition from Kraków. I do not remember where this ferris wheel is. Not important. Nice view of the bikers in danger. i am carnivorous bit I have never been so hungry to want to eat human legs. I can imagine men's legs, muscular, hairy. Brrrr. Luckily they were faster then you and run away.
That is so nice in photo, you remember some events otherwise you would forget.
asajernigan (21427) 2014-07-09 5:05
Your composition is great showing the bikers in the foreground and the Ferris wheel in the back. The reflection adds nice depth and balance for the shot. The lighitng is great as is the color and sharpness.
