I awarded nine "9"s in this challenge, but only one "10" -- to your photo. Although the subject is a bit too DPC cliché for me, I don't see a single aspect that needs improvment. Congratulations, Jaime.

woo hoo jaime .. CONGRATS on such a brilliant shot and a pb ..
i've never said woo hoo in a comment before and considering i've made 9,342 comments that's nearly weird .. lol ..
its such an amazing shot .. not only the amazing clarity of your rider and the beautiful stop action you've achieved but that incredible lighting and glorious colours .. the crop is just perfect ..
enough already .. you'll get a swollen head .. altho it would be fully justified .. !!..)

Good shot
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/28/2009 06:45:37 AM
The color looks wrong in relation to the height of the sun. But if there is a lot of smog where you are I guess it is possible. I also wish that the sun had been a bit further over to the left to balance things a little better. Nevertheless... the end result is excellent an it is a nice image. I'm guessing it will end up in the top 10. 8 from me.

Excellent shot, great composition, nice tones, smart use of silhouette concept. One of my top picks for this challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/27/2009 04:22:15 PM
The high-riding silhouette is well defined and really looks great soaring against that dramatic sunset...well done! Also, the subtle detail of land give this photo a solid anchor.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/27/2009 08:41:31 AM
Great shot! I betting on top three... Good luck.

Moto-X for romantics?
It's a great capture. Personally I would have cropped off most of the left half - but others might prefer it the way it is. Good luck
