Traveling light on a bike ride 2

  1. This was a 6 hour ride ! At the rate of one acceptable shot per hour, there are still three to go.

    This one I liked for the contrast. The background if from the weed covered water of a little pound. It was cloudy, but the next one was taken from the same spot under the bright sun.

  2. Christian, it looks like you have solved the problem of the "walkaround" ("bikearound") lens. Stopping to take photographs and enjoy the scenery, one on one, must have been a real load off your butt. Thanks for sharing and taking us along on your ride.

  3. Glad to take you aboard ! Yes, a nice bike ride and a little photography is a perfect combination - for the mind and the butt allright !

    Your first 2 shots really illustrate the impact that changes in lighting have on photos! Getting both was a nice touch.
     
  5. Thank you Don for your detailed follow-up on these. I like the dimmed tones of the first, but it lacks shaprness due to a shallow DOF.
     
  6. Christian the one i like the most is the last one, did you use a tripod or the VR of the lens?
     
  7. Gilles, this is all handheld, with VR turned on. The idea is to ride light. With an extra battery, and the small LowenPro bag I tie to the waist, it weights 1.250 kilo (about 2.75 pounds).

    Ifind both series very relaxing to view,you've got a great eye to bring the "usual"in a original way
    Thanks for sharing
     
  9. I like the last one, something about the way the light reflection looks. I can't remember the name of an era in art history where they used small dobs of paint but this reminds me of that.
     
  10. Thanks, Don. I think you are referring to pointillism. The ffect here is of course due to the organic matters floating on the water.
