Took this one on Sunday, through the window while stopped at a traffic light. What do you think? Suggestions for improvement always welcome (even if it means reshooting, for the next time:)

Thank you all for the comments. Carisa, I'll try the b&w conversion tonight and post it here to try to get some more comments.

An amazingly good photograph all things considered. Really decent technicals.

The only real defect is the red triangular sign in the background. It is unrealistically balanced on the handlebars and is a distraction for viewers. Clone it out and you may find it significantly improves the composition.

I like the composition, exposure is great and best part is that it was not a planned shot

Here's the one without yield sign:
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/29269/thumb/348360.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/29269/thumb/348360.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Tighter crop:
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/29269/thumb/348367.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/29269/thumb/348367.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

And a duotone:

I like the tight crop. It's a stronger picture than the other two. I'm not a fan of the duotone. There appears to be some kind of halo around the hand and steer that isn't there in the color pictures.

Left you a comment on the one with the tight crop! A definate no vote from me on the duotone.

B&W might make a stronger composition than duotone for this particular subject. Bikers tend to make good B&W subjects. LOL! Closer crop looks good.

Amazing what nice photographs unexpectedly present themselves to us as long as we keep our "photo radar" turned on, isn't it?
