The downtown lights"

Beautiful, really the feeling of this one. Imprints on fresh snow, very nice touch, reaching low and then that bike adds content to the shot. Nicely done.

Wonderful ambiance here. The snow covered bike and the footprints...oh, so effective.
5 Jan 2009 5:32am
Love the composition here. The footprints add a lot to this. I have often wonders how someone handles a bicycle in the snow.
5 Jan 2009 5:44am
Great street shot, nice composition. Love the footprints.
5 Jan 2009 6:19am

5 Jan 2009 6:20am
Gorgeous is a word that comes to my mind when I see your picture! like foot tracks in the snow. Good captured
5 Jan 2009 6:26am

5 Jan 2009 6:44am
plein de douce tristesse et en même temps de poésie sensible ........

I think everything I want to say has already been said above apart from I like the way the person fits into the frame and the fact they're walking away from the camera. Great photo!

I just took a pic from my window of a bike under the snow (since Paris is under big snow !) - Love those footprints and that perspective, as if the bicycle was looking at the girl leaving, yelling in its own "head" only, Please save me !
5 Jan 2009 7:53am
That's a fantastic image Sharon!...I love the angle of the bike and the footsteps in the snow!
5 Jan 2009 8:05am

5 Jan 2009 10:30am

5 Jan 2009 10:38am
For lack of safety the bike must be abandoned. Looks to be a paperboy leaving on foot. Wonderful wintry scene.
5 Jan 2009 10:40am
5 Jan 2009 11:08am
Beautiful composition and perspective. The bicycle in a snowstorm is always an interesting sight and I like how you've just barely kept the pedestrian who made the tracks in the frame. Very nice!
5 Jan 2009 11:22am
A cold way to travel for sure. I've ridden throughout the winter. Brings back memories.
5 Jan 2009 11:25am
I like the low point of view.
5 Jan 2009 11:31am
beautifull snow in the street
5 Jan 2009 11:47am

5 Jan 2009 2:23pm
There's something about people walking away that is very appealing, well done Blue ;)
5 Jan 2009 2:57pm

What a unique eye for the street scene and ability (instinct) for composition!!!
5 Jan 2009 3:34pm
Beautiful street shot !
5 Jan 2009 3:47pm
I love that bike and the foot prints in the snow. There's a feeling of quiet with not too much stirring at this hour.
5 Jan 2009 4:00pm
Excellent angle of view! Nice shot!
5 Jan 2009 4:02pm
Very good how you captured the atmosphere!
5 Jan 2009 4:54pm

5 Jan 2009 4:55pm
Wonderful image which really makes the connection with a cold early morning. The low PoV was key here and icily effective !
5 Jan 2009 5:15pm
Very nice urban scene and the footprints are just marvelously-shown!
5 Jan 2009 7:26pm
As usual, incredible depth of connection between photo, lyrics, and viewer (that'd be us)...
5 Jan 2009 8:42pm
Exceptionnal photograph, a must see ... and an entire story...
Happy New Year, Sharon, all the best to you in 2009!
5 Jan 2009 9:13pm
Wonderful ambiance here.
A well done image.
5 Jan 2009 9:42pm
Looks like a vision made while slipping on ice, moments before hitting the sidewalk. A true winter scene!
5 Jan 2009 9:56pm
Great angle of view who shows well to advantage footprints and the bike covered by snow.
This is the type of scene i can see when i look out of my window today... for the first time since many years, it snows a lot in my town and all is white everywhere...
5 Jan 2009 10:54pm
Wish I had taken that, footprints of envy : ] best...jerry
5 Jan 2009 11:16pm
so much to see - the low angle works well, the footprints, the city street. another great shot.
6 Jan 2009 2:04am
Another nice shot, like the low angle along with the neglected snowed down bike... footprints walking past ignoring the bike. Very nice.
6 Jan 2009 2:29am
Nice capture, love the bike as the focal point.
6 Jan 2009 3:21am
This has to be one of the best shots I've seen on a photoblog in a while. Very good work. I can't really add to what's been said. There's a lot about this photograph that I like, and nothing I've been able to find that I don't. Congratulations.
6 Jan 2009 4:48am
steps on the snow, a bicycle waiting .. gray city of powdered white and the city that lives slowly at a rate of winter, photo atmosphere .. .. I like ..
6 Jan 2009 3:58pm
6 Jan 2009 5:23pm
I like the lighting and angle. Great image - makes me step back and wonder....
6 Jan 2009 6:04pm
Not to slide, it is better the walking.
6 Jan 2009 9:06pm
Despite the number of comments, I allow myself to go there , with the risk of a repetition knowing that I prefer not to read the precedents in order not to be influenced. I like much your position of shot, that allows to reveal the traces of step while having these wheels of bicycle with range of sight, by this time of ice, it is surely better to use shoes that the bicycle. By the important light of the little attended street, this moment of shared departure for work alone in the early morning becomes clear and beautiful in spite of the difficulties Then once again Cheer ;)
6 Jan 2009 11:10pm
Beautifully composed, a bleak day but with light shining through with the long interesting shadow of the bike,and the footsteps and person in shot that people still drag them selves out in this to get on with daily business
7 Jan 2009 2:01pm
8 Jan 2009 1:30am
Really like the angle and mood of this one - great work.
9 Jan 2009 6:45am
Great view! Yes, this empty street have magic mood. The walker adds something to the scenery. Bravo.
14 Jan 2009 2:50pm
so Vancouver: thanks. I like all the subtle lines in this composition, pulling one in and up the street.
16 Jan 2009 5:50pm
Really beautiful. Snow softens views, and lights emphasize tones softly. GREAT!
17 Jan 2009 6:24am
a marvelous composition -- beautifully dusted with snow and memories! i love this pov!! faaabulous!!!
21 Jan 2009 5:41am
Oui, j'aime bien le cadrage et la tonalité. Bravo
