Note: Original title was: Riding a bike in Oxford, due to comments I change it for this new, more descriptive one
Crossing a street in England is always something difficult if not dangerous because of the different sense of the traffic, so, doing it carefully I saw bus and girl approaching, she seemed to be running a race with the bus and must stop to let people cross, a quick click, not the best quality but…
Being at High Street at the end of the day, is common to watch such scenes, after a day of work or study, going home doing some exercise, there are more bikes than cars parked along the buildings and lanes

une scène intéressante, le rouge est bien présent à Oxford; contrastes intéressants entre cycliste et bus.

Red and red, Maria, beautifully spotted.
Modern city bus replaced the old double-decks old buses, but left with the red color.
The young biker-lady also wearing red on red bike and with red bag.
Charming moment collected.
Buen fin de semana,

nice framing and composition with the features of the subject in excellent clarity. the oblique view has given a great sense of movement though the cyclist has one foot on the ground. the vivid red colour beautifully managed. thanks for sharing. have a nice weekend.

bel colpo, il rosso prevale in maniera indiscussa ed è bello il contrasto tra il bus e la bici.

Good candid Oxford street scene with the British red bus and coated biker in transit.
Have a fine weekend,

Hello Maria ,
it`s such a vibrant and colourful shot with lots of red to enjoy but the thing that I like must of all is the haughty gaze of the lady cyclist! Priceless.
You did ever so well to get this fine grab shot,it`s delightful.
Kind regards Les.

Hola Maria de Argentina,
Hey, that almost rhymes! :) Yes indeed, there is plenty of red color here...but guess what I noticed first? The blue storefront. :)
Love this combination of red elements though, and the expression from the bicyclist is amusing...she looks as if she's giving you a head nod to say "What's up?" She appears to be out of her bike lane though, isn't it required to stay between the two yellow lines?? jaja
A great daily life street capture, and one that's lively and full of perceived motion. I'd love to ride my bike, but it takes a 45 minute drive to get to work...can you imagine how much longer it would take on two wheels, and for me to have to pedal those wheels? No way!!
Bus and bike, this turned out quite right. ¡Bien hecho
Have a wonderful day ahead mi amiga.
You know what else has a lot of red color...a bottle of Coke! :))

Excellent street close-up snapshot with very nice colors, perfect light, very good clarity. I like the lady on the bicycle discretely watching you. The mirroring in the bus front window is also very nice. The well-chosen tight crop eliminates all unwanted distractions.
Very well done
Wish you a very nice weekend.

What a nice scene from Oxford! Indeed, the red is a key of your great work and works here very well to make it so eye-catching. Well seen and done.
Have a nice weekend!
Subhogen (4037) 2014-02-22 3:19
Wow that's a lot of red, looks like a communist country :-)
Very nice street photography, great observation and timing to click this photo. Nice trendy bus, we have some buses like these in Calcutta as well but they are very expensive. Thanks for sharing.

I like the angle and the perfect matching bold colour, this is just the sort of street shot I would love to snap Great you have the eye for this precise moment well spotted, composed and excellent execution, Congrats
ourania (22744) 2014-02-22 12:09
Hola Maria querida,
a very elegant daily life picture, a fine urban scene with lovely colours. Your composition and the lady's posture have rendered the scene very dynamic creating a very credible sense of movement. There are fine details and it's great you included a comprehensive background with an interesting sign too. I also like the reflections, the natural lighting and the colours surrounding the reds. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,
PaulVDV (19395) 2014-02-22 15:01
Red, red and red. A pity that the bus-destination isn't Red Hill. Probably on Rose Hill there will be red roses.
Apart from the bags at the back of the bike, there's another red bag at the other side of the street.
You know that pictures with something bright red on, get more attention than others.
I love the facial expression of the cyclist.
Best regards, Paul

Very nice capture from Oxford.
The title is just top.
TFS and have a nice weekend

Hello Maria ,
Good juxtaposing of the cyclist against the big bg bus as well as nice warm cold colour contrasts between the red and blue / grey. Excellent sharpness and the diagonal axis adds both dynamism and linear perspective. Tfs!
adramad (33584) 2014-02-24 15:24
Una imagen que captaste esplendidamente y muy oportunamente, con esta coincidencia del autobus rojo y la ciclista tambien de rojo, tambien es un curioso contraste la diferencia de tamaños, que asi se nota aun mas.
Un bello trabajo muy bien realizado.
Con buena iluminacion y nitidez.
Que tengas un buen dia.
Apurba20 (629) 2014-02-24 22:43
The change was apt. The red really dazzles.
So does the blue too, of the holographics shop across the street.
Very nice study. I like the way the girl is looking at you.
Cricri (96993) 2014-02-25 9:25
Le scoop avec le bus rouge et la cycliste( très sérieuse) , avec son vélo, sa tenue et ces accessoires rouges, intéressante présentation
Belle soirée a toi
danos (80957) 2014-02-26 6:39
charmy and your new title as the passing by young womant to be in the same colours with the passing by bus.I like the well chosen POV as the good light and colour management.
cornejo (25499) 2014-02-26 10:46
Hola María, interesante escena de la vida cotidiana en la ciudad, muy bien captada en esta interesante y buena fotografia, con buena nitidez, luz y color. Muy buen y bonito trabajo perfectamente realizado, mis felicitaciones amiga mía. Gracias por compartir este interesante trabajo.
Buena tarde y feliz resto de semana.
Un cordial saludo desde el sur de España.
eldancer1 (23081) 2014-02-28 10:09
Great timing and capture of this lady in red with the red bus in the background, accidental but beautiful color coordination and she is pretty, too. Good lighting and nice details. Well done, tfs.
subhendu_bagchi (24381) 2014-02-28 17:45
nicely composed scene with red... The street view is fascinating with the lady cyclist and the red bus. Nicely spotted and well presented. Tfs.
marina7 (8027) 2014-03-05 10:59
wonderful snapshot! The timing is perfect, you were quick enough to assess the originality of the scene:) Well seen and captured.
Oceania (4082) 2014-03-20 7:33
In normal thinking, UK is always in grey overcast sky. So, the color of red is so welcoming. You had a great capture here with red bus, red bike, and even a biker in red.
Miguel82 (17317) 2014-04-05 21:22
From my own personal story, red is indeed one of the favorite color of people in England..I appreciate that brillant daily life shot Maria, regards
