You have made wonderful use of the "tunnel", Richard, and the low-angle light.

This is a very good shot Richard....the tunnel of trees adds so much more to the DOF.....well done....petersmile
Richard Trim: Many thanks Peter. I read up in a novice book of photography about avenues of trees .. so it seems to have paid off. ;-)
It is great shot with a good depth of field and a good point of view(, but... is the cyclist not a bit too sharp?)

Well done!
Richard Trim: Thanks Pekka I take your point on board ... this time I deliberatly wanted to create a grainy feel to it

Gobsmacked, Richard. And a Likey for me.
Richard Trim: Gawd ... I could get to like the inhabitants of the Netherlands ;-)
I agree with previous comments this is a corker
Richard Trim: Thanks Martin ... but don't let Bill lead you astray ..
This picture has it all. A perfect B & W, with a texture perfect trees. The star of the picture known to exist of this, not very happy. A greeting.

Love the light in the background, ride girl, ride ! Richard will open his arms for you ! (did you ? wink
Richard Trim: ''Richard will open his arms for you !'' ... Ha! what an interesting thought Karine. Let's put things in perspective: Firstly I probably scared the living daylights out of her kneeling unmoving. Secondly I was struggling to hold the camera without any shake ... so there is your answer. smile

I do remember an image of yours from a year or so ago when you surprised a lady on some steps which may have been in MontMartre ... possibly creating a similar emotional experience in some capacity. Ha!

Good to see in this series people enjoying themselves. She looks to be deep in thought.
Richard Trim: Very tolerant of sad old geezers trying to snap pretty girls ;-)

I like the park theme, great idea to use the framing of the trees and taking pictures of people walking, running and bicycling
Richard Trim: Many thanks Magnus
Very good Richard, I lie the person filling in the gap in the background as well, it finishes it off nicely.
Richard Trim: I think you have made a good point there Brian

Good ,but not as good. You clearly made the most of the light. Tripod?
Richard Trim: Well something has to make up second and become an also ran. Very rarely take a tripod ... too much hassel
This is just breathtaking. Hats off Richard!
Richard Trim: Many thanks Richard
Sopmething about this reminds me of Mark Wallinger's video - Welcome to the Kingdom.
Richard Trim: I'll be happy to accept that from you Chad ... any time
This is excellent Richard smile
