Biking with Umbrella

Not safe.

Riding a bike with one hand can be difficult. Let’s not lowering the safety factor by holding an umbrella on the other hand.

I’ve seen an umbrella holder for bicycle; that would make a better (not best) option.

And try to use transparent umbrella. At least it helps with the visibility :D…

  1. Favorite photo: 1st one. The signs on the right conduct your eye to the bike. Also there’s some femenin side on the photo: the lady riding the bike, the pink umbrella. :)

    What’s also interesting is that the whole scene seems to be B&W but with some touch of color, kind like of tone splitting technique.

    • Cheers, Helder.

      I think this is how I like to process my photos; less saturated. To be honest, I’m not really sure what tone splitting is. I thought it is just for monochrome photos.

      Interesting. I think I want to learn more about tone splitting :-)…

      • :-) You can use it on monochrome and color photos. Just google it and you will find lots of examples. :)

  2. Pretty damn awesome GM, love the top one and I agree with Helder, the toning is very good.
