This photo was panned and the zoom turned so that the people in the cyclo were a little more focused than the rest of the photo. Using Paintshop Pro X, I lightened the photo only slightly.

Great shot, brings back memory when I used to ride around Saigon on of those. Cyclo operators are usually the poorest in Vietnam society, now with the introductions of the taxi in the past 10 years, many of those operator lives have been changed completely. I believe you can still find cyclos on the streets of Saigon and Hanoi, but those are owned and run by tourism companies, their operators can speak a little of English, are well groomed and equiped with cellphones.

It brings me joy and evokes a noltagic feeling in me to see DPCers submiting their shots about my homeland.

Thank You

nice idea, but i think this should have been a bit sharper to keep it from looking like an accidental grab. the topic is full of potential, and i love the colors, just wish the composition was a bit stronger.

I like this effect. Would have been nicer to have the people a bit sharper..Just takes practice

On a scale of 0-2 in five different categories: Image quality - 1 (a hair sharper on the subject would have made all the difference). Composition - 1.5. Lighting - 1.5. Post Processing - 1.5. Choice of Subject - 1.5. WOW FACTOR - +1. TOTAL SCORE - 7

Very nice shot. The blur is wonderful and yet the models are relatively much sharper. The colors of the girl stands out 8
