Seattle Times reader Scott Henricksen’s image of a bike rider on the Alaskan Way Viaduct is a study in shapes and motion.
Photographer: Scott Henricksen, of Shoreline
Photo taken: April 8, 2018, on Seattle’s Alaskan Way Viaduct
Photographer’s description: “My wife and I rode the Emerald City Bike Ride, with a last opportunity to see the sights from the Alaskan Way Viaduct at bike speed. It was cold, windy and wet, but thousands of riders were having a great time, including this guy. Shot with Olympus OMD M-5 Mark II and 12-40mm lens.”
Critique: “Sometimes a nice photo is all about being in the right spot at the right time, like this one where the normally car-and-bus-heavy viaduct was open to bikers. The red coloring on the bike rider helps draw the eye. Getting lower to take the photo would create separation from the railing in the background.”
