Cycling at Piazza del Duomo

By alistairfarrugia    
Florence is full of cyclists whizzing past tourists. Whilst there with my wife, I made it a point to capture a few good shots of cyclists with blurred backgrounds. This is one of my favourite shots from this series of photos. At a later stage I might upload a few more as well, or a collage maybe.

Shot settings: f/5.0, 1/100", ISO 400, FL: 18mm

In v. 2, the background isn't as blurry, thus the scene appears more realistic. In v. 1, we have the opposite, but once we understand the intent, it all falls into place. To me, the way you have frame your shot is quite good, as the tip of the side-walk leads to the bicycle, whereas the rest of the side-walk leads to the background. Furthermore, it is quite evident that blurring the background places the accent on the cyclist. Consequently, I understand why this is your favourite shot. Cheers,
