@Anthony Morgan Lambert: I was walking along the path near the beach at the time of day when the sun hits like this - the shadows were fantastic - so I shot - but not just one - many of the bicycles that came by. I tried to get it so that the starkness of the sun was covered mostly by the head of the rider or at the back of them. So it wasn't exactly luck - although the sun played along brilliantly - and I did have the perfect time for trying more than once.
: ) And that's lucky - yes?
This is incredible. How did you ever line it all up so perfectly. Looks so spontaneous, but perfectly balanced, lighted, at the same time. I'm in envy over this eye you have to capture these precious moments in time, Becky. Love the treatment of b/w here, and the sand and ocean beyond the figure. Love the shadows in the foreground. Nice that you composed it how you did. Great shot.

@LauraS: The sun hits like this at a certain time of the day on the beach - and while I was walking I noticed the fantastic shadows of the bikes going by. So - I just started shooting whenever i saw a bike come by. I waited until the sun was behind or blocked by the face so the glare would be minimal - it was great fun.
Superb composition! Great shadow play, beautiful B/W and light!
3 Nov 2010 2:20pm
