We rented bikes and toured 40 km around the lake of Annecy. There's so many nice spots to see!
Tech talk: choosing the b&w rendering is often tricky. In this case, I chose the Polaroid 664 because of the kind of halo in front of the biker, the shadow outside the road part and the lighting on the t-shirt.

Le tour du lac d'Annecy... heu, vaut le détour, assurément. 40 km, avec une sacrée montée vers Talloires qui a mis à l'épreuve les petits citadins que nous sommes... mais quelles belles vues !
Blabla technique : choisir l'émulation de N&B est souvent assez complexe; ici, j'ai été guidé par la lumière sur le t-shirt, le halo devant le bras gauche et l'ombre hors de la route.

DxO optics Pro 6 notes:
tweaked tone curve; white balance: daylight; color rendering: Polaroid 664.

Marius G.Mihalache Michel, *Reinhard* have particularly liked this photo

the 664 rendering probably did it. this picture has the spirit of a time long gone by. i like it. but i like bike pics anyway ;)

A hundred of thanks Bunthund, because I really hoped that my attempt to simulate an old picture was successful. To me, yes; for the others, it is another business!
Framing may not be perfect but I could not get rid of the shadow, the grain of the road, the barrier...
Bikes, like boats, have something really special so that it is impossible not to take a shot!
