Last night for the first time in months it rained in Muscat the capital of Oman, in the morning when i visited a friends house i saw that the rain had left its mark on her street. When i saw these men on their bicycles i knew that my camera had to be put to use.

Great shot - you can feel those bikes moving towards you through the water. Nice reflections in the water too. TFS, Leon

I like this picture, interesting with these reflections and the little waves made by the cyclist in the water...

I like this picture. Beautiful composition with the bycicles in the reflections.

Funny but interesting framing ! It permits you to focus on reflection and the rainy road.
You were at the good place at the good moment.

I like a lot the fact that there is no face in this picture, aither in reality or in reflections. Nice POV and framing.

excellent seen and made. Really good shot and technically well done.
SamB (1948) 2006-11-21 16:36
Nice work, i like the cropped heads, emphasizing the movement of the bicycles. Nice reflection work, as well.
vincent24 (9060) 2006-11-21 17:04
Almost a decisive moment,you've dare a close frame only on the bicycle and the reflection...it's ok for me,good job,

Fantastic shot, Latifah! Composition, using the reflection are excellent. And topic is also nice.
AmiBe (6042) 2006-11-21 17:08
the crop is much better for me.
It could be very funny if you shot 1 sec before.
Their faces would be on the reflection.
Good graphical impact.

Greetings Latifah. The first thing that strikes me are the glowing, clean colours and then the balanced composition with the subtle use of diagonals, even the bicycles wheels are included. Great opportunistic shot, beautifully handled. Regards. Klaudio.

Excellent compo, really, nice to have cropped the heads and to have framed the reflections.
pastadog (13111) 2006-11-22 14:31
Sharp and colorful Latifah, and original with the 3! bikes and their reflections, excellent! Regards, Daniel

A very nice and original picture.
I like the reflexions not only of the bikers but also of the surroundings.
stego (24124) 2006-11-24 20:14
Very nice capture, Tifah.
I like the compo very much, I think it's most inspired, with the reflection, the dinamism caused by the waves and... the cropped heads both above and below.
I can't explain why, but I find if amusing.

good moment you captured
sothy81 (9588) 2006-12-01 1:28
Hi Latifah, I have not browsed your pictures for quite a long time. This one is such a great shot. Very sharp and in focus. The reflection is also great. The perspective is also great too in terms of transportation people in India use. Great work. Sothy
karinegl (172) 2006-12-21 5:24
Well done. I am just wondering how you managed to get those men on a same ligne ?
Anyway the result is nice and cutting the heads was a very good idee !
chamkhalaf (249) 2006-12-27 16:27
very nice shot&good color

arjun_das (1851) 2007-01-17 0:15
excellent idea. nice reflections to capture. but i think - had you taken this shot just a fraction of second earlier, you would have got the complete reflection of the cyclists and that would have greater impact as well. anyway, you deserve to be complimented for your good work. tfs.

Well done with this picture. You "saw" a photo where nobody would do.
Is a clever work and also suggerent.
Thanks for sharing.
