TheoJ from Emden, Germany

excellentes Photo, tolle Wüstenlandschaft - und für Motorradfreunde sicher ein Abenteuer, dort zu fahren.

@TheoJ: Ja, das is ein sehr schöner Sandkasten dort :-)

Adela Fonts from Barcelona, Spain

Wonderful set and dragging powerful visual vitality ... very different from the clothing of our friend Jerry! Do not you think? Best regards, Adela

@Adela Fonts: Yes, thats sure. But we are not motocross-riders like our sympathic friend. We are travellers. We like it to ride offroad, but not so extremly.

vaFA from tehran, Iran

Phil David Morris 2011 from Saskatoon, Toronto, New York, Canada

Beautifully set up photo, this man is very comfortable in his shoes, no doubt.

15 Sep 2011 7:48am

@Phil David Morris 2011: yep, cross-boots would have been better. But we had a cold and rainey travel to the ferry in genua. It was winter in Germany. I drove this in similar touring boots...and came back with a broken toe.

lili from Narbonne, France

Zorilla from H, T & E, United Kingdom

I like the slight overexposure of the color. It captures the feel of the landscape well. Is this in Tunisia?

15 Sep 2011 9:40am

@Zorilla: yep...Tunesia, but in 2010, befor the revolution started.

Jean-Luc T. from Juignac, France

Excellent, alone with his bike...Is he looking for the North?

15 Sep 2011 9:59am

@Jean-Luc T.: No, to the south....that was our direction. You can see this at the shadow. It was midday. Merci :-)

Laurie from Prescott, United States

Wonderful, Ralf! Looks like he feels himself to be king of the hill! Great portrait of this man with his toy!

15 Sep 2011 12:50pm

@Laurie: He´s not really the king, but the president of our MC ... okay, that´s perhaps the same :-))

Ralph Jones from Detroit, United States

sehr eindrucksvolles kontrastreiches portrait dieses "crazy guys"
mir gefällt auch deine bearbeitung, die mich doch sehr richtung hdr tendieren lässt!
tolles motiv und bist du eine runde mitgefahren? ;-)

15 Sep 2011 2:36pm

@klausZ: Richtig, die meisten meiner Bilder sind mit PhotomatixPro gemappt. Und meine Aprilia ist gegenüber Martins BMW zwar eher ein Pizzataxi, aber weggefahren ist der mir nicht ;-)
