An instant mood setter that steals away the imagination. The silhoutte against that lovely sky makes the viewer pause. Congratulations on your RED.

I plan on only voting for the "not your typical" shots this challenge. While I've seen several bike shots this is very neat silhouette you capture. Great composition and clouds really add to this. Good luck -8-

Great action shot! Love the composition though I think cropping so the guy is a bit higher in the shot would add even more excitement. Also think processing for a bit more color in the sky might have given it a little more pop, but what a great shot overall. 7.

9 :) great silhouette and sky.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/02/2006 12:10:13 PM
This belongs on a poster :)
Maybe a crop tighter on the left and a little more negative space on the right would make it more dramatic.
