Lonesome Biker at the Beach

Taking someone against the sea is a very common shot cause it usually works fine. I got this lonesome biker reading at the beach near La Barceloneta quarter. It would be a very boring picture (ok, it is boring already I know) if it weren't for the light falling on those boats on the horizon. Here I show you an aerial picture of the place and to compensate for the lack of "interestingness" of the post I leave you with three Barcelona clips I found at Enjoy them and have a nice weekend.

    I find this photo anything but boring. I love the way the light almost makes a halo around the lone biker.

    I find this picture far from boring. You can almost see a halo of light around your lonesome biker.

    The link to the aerial picture is very interesting. You did well in framing the photo with a darker halo, it adds drama. It's a quiet picture but not a boring one, even if it's not action-packed like yesterday's.
    BUT YOU'RE RIGHT, being boring is a sin. Many city daily photo bloggers should ask themselves this question more often: is my photo really interesting? Do people really want to spend some of their time watching this? I always feel bad when I find my photos aren't interesting enough.

    You are quite wrong about a boringness! Think, what this picture tells to us in the middle of snow!
    We can bike on melted roads after three months and sit on the beach reading after 4-5 months, when a weather and sand are warm enough. It`s nice to look at the picture and dream about next summer.
    But our snowy landscape is beautiful, children skate, ski cross country and slalom next 2-3 months :)Everything is just fine, when we know, a summer is surely coming after four months, and your picture promises that.
    Nice weekend to you and your family !

  8. To you and me, Carlos, another beach shot might be mundane, but to many landlocked people, it is heaven and a promise of things to come...

    Using your criteria, my post today is also boring ;-)

  9. I love the aerial picure detail.. when I started with Madrid DP I thought seriusly of doing the same with all my photos.. But I didn't :)
    It's a nice photo, I like very much the sea blue colour!
