The lady & the Merc

Sorry for not posting for a while. And a huge thank you for all the wonderful comments on the last one! I hope to post more regularly in future.

All the best. mal

P.S. This was taken in Berlin in 2006, the day before I went to the world cup final.

I think the choice of focus and the mono suits the subject perfectly.
Perspective and focus make this composition really pop. Nice.

Very, very cool shot, Mal..reminds me of old classic films. I can imagine the likes of Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn behind the wheel.

Great composition - absolutely made by the presence of the bicycle! Just my kind of street shot. A likey for me.

So which one is yours - lady or the merc. Judging by the focus choice it must be the car.

Excellent street shot with vintage appeal.

Beautiful juxtaposition.
I just love the contrast between the sharp shining detail of the merc, with the beautiful reflections, and the soft image of the lady on the bike. Brilliant. (:o)

brilliantly done, Mal--not just the technical handing and semantics of the photograph--but the message also.

Half the fun in coming in late on this, Mal, is reading everyone else's comments! I bet YOU get a kick out of it yourself. smile

The best thing I saw or read was that you "hope to post more regularly in future."

BRAVO!

Cool. I have an almost similar shop. I'll try it in black and white and see what it looks like.
Great B&W. Something very nostalgic about this one. And sort of French... don't ask me why.

So many questions... was this just one shot? What pp did you use on the 'background'... I'll stop there..
Amazing stuff Mal. It does have the chic Parisian feel to it, as already mentioned... although it was in Berlin wink

That's a great shot! I'm really drawn by the blurry focus of the cyclist and that really makes the shot for me, the contrast against the sharpness of the car detail.

Ah, a shallow DOF can be just gorgeous! Has some 50's feeling to it...
I like.
