Good clarity up front, but the man looks almost like a cardboard cut-out.

Like the intensity on his face, and the perspective. Super rich tones and clarity. Nice job. He almost looks 3-D. 10

Good work, although maybe lacking in any real photographic, rather than politico-social, interest.

Good photo of a sad story...

Either this shot was very creatively lit, or the guy on the bicycle was shot in a studio and then layered against this landscape. One way or the other, I find the incredibility of the lighting distracting...or maybe it's my overworked mind. I would love to see the guy against a pure white backdrop, in the exact same position.

Unusual lighting - fill flash? Looks rather as though it has been shot i a studio with a very real looking backdrop! The shadows don't seem to add up..

Wow - I'd love to know the story behind this picture - and what's his status these days other than no more sponsors? Very nice shot, too, by the way!
