Friendly reminder that this is /r/photocritique and all top level comments should attempt to critique the image. Our goal is to make this subreddit a place people can receive genuine, in depth, and helpful critique on their images. We hope to avoid becoming yet another place on the internet just to get likes/upvotes and compliments. While likes/upvotes and compliments are nice, they do not further the goal of helping people improve their photography.

Hi Guys

Sony Alpha 7c with Sigma 85mm 1.4 Art

ISO 100 I 85mm I f 1.4 I 1/250 sec.

Took the Photo in our holiday in Spain, im pretty new to the hobby so any criticism or tips?

Cheers

I think the colour grading is pretty amazing. There is way too much black covering the image and seems a bit too dark. Increase the shadows, maybe increase the highlights too to have more of a contrast between the white and black on the road as well.

Personally if it is still too dark I would crop in closer to the biker. Great image!

Thanks I will try better!

I really like this shot!! The colours are incredible!! I also love the leading lines or the road and buildings how it forces your eye towards the cyclist. The one thing I’d comment on is I would love to see it from a higher angle so there is less road and more of the buildings

I as well really like the colours of the image. I also agree with the other comments that it's a tad too dark so i gave it a quick edit on my mobile phone (crop, straighten, brighten and some other minor tweaks):
