Now this is a great shot. Bang on. Photojournalism relies on stuff like this. Real heart.

Nice photo but I fell it's a little too tightly cropped to teh edges of the subject. Perhaps that only helps the photojournalism aspect though?!

Oh this is just cute.

especially like his shadow, and the shadow of the palm tree, in the street behind them. can't see their eyes as much as i'd like but you know what, if you got any closer maybe we wouldn't be able to make any sense of the bike. nice job waiting for the break in traffic. ten.

Stunning what a great photo--what a find well done andrewm

Bet this guy has some stories to tell, but I wish this photo actually told me more. I don't understand this culture enough to know what all this means. Not your fault, though. 6 nards656

A good street scene. Would have been nice to see the whole bicycle.

No way! Is that for real?? 7

Lovely capture1 But I would have tried to get the whole bike and less of the background . Exposure is a bit to bright!

The dog is priceless.

I recognise this one...

Great subject, Maybe different cropping, a lil further away or something? Or a different angle? something doens't quite flow right with me. - 7

Wow! What a sweet ride :) Nice Shot. Jacko 7

Did you notice? The dog looks crossed-eyed. Very interesing photo. Very sad when you can fit all your earthly possessions on a bicycle, including your pet.

Needs shallower DOF, photog's shadow in picture, crop more tightly, but I liked in none-the-less.

I ride a Harley and we call motorcycles like this.."ratbikes"......lol It would work for this guy too. My gosh!! What a hoot. Wonderful catch, this guy must be a real hoot to meet. What a find this shot was!!!!!!!!!! Good work. Justine

IMO the relationship between the title and picture are key elements in this challenge. Oh, please give me the rest of the story.

I ain't believing this bike. Proud look on his face. Love the dog. Their "bag-lady"? Real nice photo. Good focus. Great crop - nice background. It adds to for me. Good colors. Great composition and execution. PTL9
