Nice leading lines and I really like the sepia tones. Good composition and very pleasant on the eyes. :-) Nice job.

Very nice. There is something I really like about this photo, but I can't put my finger on it. Nice duotone qualities.

Nice tones in this shot. What I think hurt you was the image seems a little dark and is slightly tilted to the left. Also the black border is lost in the image. I would have put a thin white border then the black border just to seperate it from the image.

The idea pf the shot is excellent.. its well creative mind of a photographer..

i saw you dont have a knowckout camera. and i beleive only in reflex.. but for the seting i must add some thing which will defenetly make your work much much better:
Iso: 50 (just te righ one.. small iso fo less grain and beter quality)
shutter: 1/30
F/stop: 3.5 !!!!!!!!! - y? there is no reason to go for that f stop..
higher as you go the image will be sharper. then you can get focus on the trail and get a desent sharp image on the background..unless you did that on purpuse.

so what could you do: raise the iso 200 and keep the sutter around 1/30 but then the iso will let you bring the f/stop for like 14.
second: just put a small tripod.. low iso,highest f/stop and then the sutter time: whatever!! coz you got a tripod..
hope i helped...

I did not vote on this image so I can't tell you that but, in a challenge I would give you a 5. My reasoning would be that you don't have any 'whites' or 'blacks,' just every shade in between. Essentially, I wish for more contrast - it looks to be in a slight haze as it is. Nothing 'pops' because there is not enough contrast. I think the image is composed fairly well though it feels slightly tilted (higher on left). The frame works for the image. The subject is in focus and oyu have an excellent POV.

Very creative. Love the reflection. Just a little too orange"ish" for my liking. Also, I think this could use just a tad boost of contrast. 8
