Shot down by the water. Camera was tripoded and a remote shutter release used. I focused between the water and bike for this image. Raised saturation, color temp, black level, exposure, white level, reduced contrast, tint, mid tones, Small highlight on tire removed. Slight crop and resized for web app in iphoto. I'm not one to mess around this much, but figured I'd give it a shot.

This image is sensational - really different, very awesome. My only bone to pick is that the colors look fluorescent and I don't think that is necessary. Concept and execution is just beautiful, would love to see a 'tamer' version too. For now i shall fave this.

Not at all fond of the colors here. But I really like the use of missed focus. The title works with the image to promote the carefree feeling of the work. well done 9

Bold! I love it. I'm amazed at this shot really. I'm a big fan of b/w so would love to see this in black and white. Can't see giving this anything other than 10.

It's rare to see such a good puppet show.
