The angle works great, the icing on the cake though is the exaust smoke. It just adds atmosphere and jumps the picture up a few notches..

Pleasure to click.

Everything about this is just how I remember it...several scenes in one at every turn, a complete assault on all your senses in one go. A very well captured, dynamic image Koen.

Some replacement you found...On my top-3-list of your shots. Right next to the bnw-cats and the billboard-guy and Nails (the colour one) and when mickey smiles and the time-out and the potw and..

The angle is fabulous. It's like you're lying there and the bike has just run over you but noone cares.

"fumigated soup" was the title that went though my head when I looked at this image large. which is a must btw.

Great change in perspective with the photo taken from and with a low angle.
Good blck & White. lots to see.

Did you do something to the sheets, they seem lighter then the rest of the image.

Love the angle in this shot, perfect gives it movement. The smoke out of the scooter just lifts it again and the people in the background oblivious to the whole thing, fantastic. Oh and it has that tonal range again from Black to white! spot on!

Faultless. And the best use of deliberate tilted horizontals I've seen for ages.

This is really superb Koen, and I agree with all that has been said. 1st class image, evocative, atmospheric. Should get a medal or something. Smile

Really interesting street photography. There's so much going on here. Great detail, as always presented as if it was taken and processed without any thought -- which cannot be true given the technical quality of your work. Regards, Bert

I have`nt been leaving many comments any where just recently Koen. Still getting used to a new and calibrated monitor. Taken a while to get used to. Great Compositions and tones, excellent detail and the dust bringing it all to life. Pure Quality.
