Lucas, Ruud, Marjolein, Linda: many thanks fot stopping by and commenting.

@Marjolein: specail thanks to you for your detailed comment and suggestions :-) You have a point - in fact while postprocessing I did not touch colours and as the original was a bit underexposed, I probably was too careful in brightening it.
The bike indeed was a lucky 'spoiler' of the otherwise austere geometry (would've been boring witout it).

cheers, Wolfgang

Ruud Albers

A very nicely composed shot, Wolfgang!

A very aesthetically pleasing capture, Wolfgang..! I very much like the overall composition with the sky taking predominance and showing just enough ground to solidly 'anchor' your photo. The bike certainly is a graphically pleasing detail here,  and all the elements (silhouettes) are spaced just perfectly, imo.  Although I find the sunset color scheme very suiting for the scene depicted, I wonder if there isn't too much of a grey/bluish overtone here ( especially on the snow and on the kite (which could possibly benefit from a tad more light?!)..? And although this possibly is due to the particular time of day, and/or you wanted to achieve a more 'subdued feeling' here, I can't help thinking that this makes it look somewhat somber, and a bit too 'flat' for my liking...  Anyway, I very much like your image, Wolfgang -- Sincere compliments! Best regards, Marjolein

Great shot.  I really like the silhouetted bicycle.

Barbara Corvino
