I really like this one!
Thanks Vladimir 🙂
The sun looks like his helmet and his shirt. Everything else just added blaze to the whole.
Now that you mention it the sun does somewhat mimmic his attire.
How do you get the sun to not be so bright?
Underexposed for one, but there was enough haze in the air to cut down the harsh sunlight.
No filters or anything? Did you have any issues with noise from the underexposure?
Hey Josy, nope no filters on camera, however I did do a graduated filter in Lightroom to help bring back the colors I seen with my eye. And no I didn’t have any issues with noise, however I would never let a bit of noise ruin a picture for me these days. Im more interested in capturing interesting scenes than perfect pixels when it comes to my street shots 🙂
Can’t go wrong with Lyon! Love the shot Nick.
Yea Lyon has given me some nice shots in the past. I love the high view of the city below, as well as the decent workout walking back to my car at the top hahaha. Thanks Edward! Hey if your ever out shooting around in GR, let me know Im always looking for other Photogs to get together and shoot with 🙂
Sounds like a great idea, I will let you know! I should be getting some free time soon to go out roaming especially with this awesome weather we’ve been having.
I look forward to it 🙂
What a stunning photo! I like. 🙂
Thanks Sonel 🙂
Thanks Bashar 🙂
Great shot! That’s near the community college, isn’t it? And farther down there’s the court, I think.
Correct again! I keep forgetting your from GR. Each day I look forward to your street shots showing up in my Street Photography feed. If your ever back in GR I would love to do a photo walk downtown with you 🙂
No no, I am not from GR, my better half lives there … it’s because of him I spend two months in winter and three months in summer there. Will be back there in June.
That’s right. I remember you saying that now.
Simply great!!!! The scene is fantastic, composition brilliant, colour and light fabulous!!! That’s one of these shots that I’d like to take. Well seen!!! And an early bird shot!! 🙂
Thanks Santi 🙂
I love the action captured in the foreground, great shot Nick, you continue to inspire me to improve my own photography
Thanks Rob! I truly appreciate that 🙂
WOW! In the right time, right place, right action! This is great shot… Thank you dear Nick, have a nice day and weekend, with my love, nia
Thanks Nia 🙂
Just fantastic 🙂 amazing 🙂
Wow.. two smily faces haha. Thanks Filipe 🙂 😀
Great shot Nick! What jumped out at me right away is how the traffic lights look like miniature suns trying to race to catch up to the “mommy” sun. 🙂
Haha, very creative! I like it 🙂 Thanks Cindy
Very nice composition. Lots of interesting elements and the sun looks amazing.
Great shot Nick and good timing with the kid on the bike…
Thanks Martin, I just about missed the shot being I was just getting out of my car right there. Luckily had my camera on my shoulder and ready to go when I got out, heard the biker coming up and quickly framed to let him enter the scene. haha
Thanks Rachel 🙂
Such a great photo, light is perfect!
Thanks Lisa 🙂
Wow! What a capture!
Thanks Gina 🙂
Unbelieveable. Wonderful shot. Love the sun just on the horizon. The guy on the bike looks like he is racing towards the sun.
BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
Thanks Francine 🙂
Not much I can add to the others’ comments. We all like it. 😉 A lot!
The first thing that caught my eye was that the sun was “suspended over the street by the wires. ”
Of course it isn’t. But all along the Columbia River huge orange balls are suspended across it, to warn pilots not to fly because they are approaching a bridge or high-power lines.
Next time we go to watch wind surfers, I’ll be sure to focus on them instead of trying to position myself to not get them in the photo. 😉
Great comment Shez! I love the education of the orange balls suspended over the Columbia River, I can see the resemblance 🙂
Thanks Cindy 🙂
Nice urban shot, perfect timing
Thanks Bernard 🙂
Very nice photo and thanks for the like on my blog!
Thanks Barbara 🙂
This shot is framed so right. Great photo Nick.
Thanks again! 🙂
Hi Nick, thanks for the Follow on my recently started blog. Browsing through your work here, great timing on this one. Shots like this make want to go out and shoot more
(trying to post a comment yesterday but my connection went down I think, so not sure if this is double post)
Hey Gabby! Nope I don’t think this was double posted at all. Thanks for your kind words, and yes that is so true, the only way to capture un-scripted scenes like this is to be out with camera in hand. I try and make it a point to have the camera with me everywhere I go, so its never a I have to go out and shoot now, but more of Im out already so I might as well shoot. Thanks again for your kind words 🙂
A very cool shot Nick!
Thanks Adrian 🙂
Thanks again Stephen! 🙂
Absolutely stunning capture. The right place at the right time. Excellent.
