Morning Ride

I took this picture of a fisherman as he was riding down the beach just after dawn one morning in Zanzibar.

Very nice shot. The total burnout on the right bothers me though.

Nice silhouette, but I agree with efton about the burnout on the right - it's a little distracting. Perhaps would have been even better also if the bike was more to the right of the frame to give the bike some space to be going in to. Nice shot never the less Smile

Thanks for your comments everyone. And etfon911 your comment on the burnout is fair. The sun is just a couple of degrees above the top of the frame and is full on. I didn't use any filters or anything, so getting the range right was beyond my abilities. Normally I would toss a photo with such a large region of blown hilites, but in this case I liked how in order to look at the cyclist, the sun's reflection is almost demanding that you put your hand over it - exactly how it was that morning. Cheers.
