EXCELLENT job on the pan and composition.
Her flowing dress is the icing on the cake.
In my opinion, this should have been up in the ten.

What a beautiful image. It begs many questions.. why is she dressed so nicely while riding a bike? ..Where is she going so intently? ..What is she concentating on?
The B/W was a good idea. Color would be distracting here. Nice work.

One of my favorites of the challenge. Nice placement, putting her left of center gives her a sense of destination.

I don't quite understand the title but what a beautiful model. Her sari is absolutely perfect for illustrating the motion, and you have good focus on her face. Good tonality too, the limited range keeps my attention on the motion aspect. Well done.

Her perfectly focused face is fantastic!

Nice composition and lighting. Like the flying dress too. I don't get the title but that doesn't matter. Nice panning, her face is as sharp as.

Good shot ! I like the bike pic better this way with the subject infocus and the background blured I like the Tone range also

This is really good but I wish more of the lady is shown. It feels a little abrupt in the crop.
