Hi Achim,

What a great shot, love the repetition here, excellent pov and composition, I love places like this, looking great!

Have a great weekend,


Just great

Wow! What a lovely scene, Achim! I like it a lot! It's like a path going to heaven! :) Very nice timing of the day. I like the fog and mist in the background. It gives depth and adds to the vanishing perspective of the road. The entourage completes the picture and scale. Congratulations!
Freddie :)

Well framed ! Very nice light !

Dreaming atmosphere. Trees shadow seems to design a fence on the street.
Point of perspective is able to capture the sight of the observer driving it towards an enchanted place.
Ciao, Antonella

WOW Achim
This photograph looks like it belongs in a fairytale! The huge trees and the shadows they create are amazing..


Hello Achim,

This is such a good shot!
It is moody, wonderfully framed, has excellent light and shadows, draws the eyes into the frame and repetition, repetition, repetition!

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

This is an impressive shot Achim!

By your POV you have created an amazing amount of space and hight.

The repetitions are lovely indeed, Achim. A vast line of trees on either side of the road, letting in enough light to see what's going on. The slight backlight somehow caused a bit of an overexposure on the centre part of the shot though - which is weird, as backlight usually generates underexposure. So I'm wondering if you overcorrected here?
Anyway, TFS

This is an exceptionally good picture.
The rythm of the trees is amplified by the shadows.
Contrast decreases towards the horizon.
The cyclist is exactly in the good place to give a pleasing image.

Such a sweet moment you have captured with you camera in this photo. It makes we want to wash off my old bicycle and ride to the park.

Great Shot JFK
The depth of field is impeccable.
The POV is superb.
Symmetrical trees casting symmetrical shadows is a treat for the eyes.
The cycler and the person who is further away add a lot of depth to the scene.
Excellent capture

Hello Achim.
you have so many good pictures in your gallery that its hard to know where to start and I have enjoyed browsing. But this is a complete knoeck out and so I shall start here although I am sure there is nothing that I can say that hasn't been said.First of all I like the compo with the cyclist perfectly placed in the frame.The balance of the trees on each side is just right with the trees on he right leading us with a strong diagonal.I also like where the trees seem to meet and we can see the ghostly lines of their upper branches in the mist.And of course the light and the repition.

Hello Achim !

Missed this superb shot previously , Thanks to your intro page. I will not repeat , what I have been repeat before.

But about the lovely composition, I find it looks remarkably like we are standing in the main alley of an old cathedral with massive columns. The shadows being the benches, and the branches at the top , the arches.

Spectacular POV, and mood. Well done!
Great vision,

very impressive picture.nice atmosphere.strong perspective line created by repetition of trees and line of grass .lovely color scheme as well especially the green grass,it made this shot outstanding as well as soft light give a soft look and foggy at the end of perspective and pattern of lines on the road leading to the man on bicycle and the other one that good relate from elements.in this picture i like texture of trees and their branches in foggy as well as green grass.i think they made this shot more charming :)
thank you for beautiful photo

hello Achim,
I love the lighting here, and the contrasts.
The repetition works so well.
Excellent POV and compo.
TFS, Joni

Hello Achim,
It isn't surprising that this is the best rated photo of your gallery.
Excellent composition: very structured, but not too straight. The trees on the foreground on the left side offer an excellent lead-in to the rest of your photo. The cyclist leads our eyes even further, to the hazy background. You achieved a stunning depth of field.
In spite of the difficult light conditions (harsh sunlight), you managed to keep the colours (and even the white tones) sufficiently nuanced...
TFS & kind regards,

bonjour Achim
quite amazing picture; great and poetic work from original shot

great picture Achim..
especially the shadow of row of trees is giving it a splendid look.

Hello Achim,

This was the featured photo of your gallery and deservedly so. Although I have seen many images from this site especially from TE, this is one of the better ones. Lighting is fabulous, and the biker is just the icing on the cake. Wishing you well. Regards.
