Fly Baby Fly!

Post Challenge- Wow! Thanks everyone so much for your comments and faves. I really love this image and you would not believe the trouble it took to get. It was not the orginal idea. Long story but went to this airport hanger for shelter because of the heavy rain- And, inspiration struck -when I saw the old bike (flat tires and all)-
And, off he went.
I am really happy with the score and thanks again for all the support. This is great.

Love the leading lines here, and the way you can see the effort he's putting into pedaling the bike! - The ominous clouds and wet road all contribute to make this an absorbing shot that works on many levels.

The wings seem a bit crooked on the subject, I would have prefered if they more closely followed the line of his back.

I love the shot but the wings don't seem to match the rest of the photo. The wings perhaps should have been dirty then it would be a perfect 10.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/20/2007 12:49:45 AM
Haha! This will do well. Ribboner or not, i really like this photo alot! You did a great job. The atmosphere is very cool and gritty, as opposed to angelic like. :-D
