I liked the shadows in your shot, and I like the simplicity of color here - it really made the 'white' balloons stand out.

That really looks like Louie Theroux!

I like it...a bit of a retro feel to it.

I find myself feeling as confined as he does. It a cool setting and nice treatment, but something just doesn't work in the composition for me. I think it's those branches in the upper right corner. Perhaps pulling in from the right to lose those foreground branches (4:5 crop)? This also puts the biker off center and gives him somewhere to "go" in the shot besides forward. I'm not a strict rule of thirds guy, but I think this shot would have really benefited from having him closer/on a right 3rd line. Still a 7.

Overall, a nice shot... nice composure, meets the challenge well, etc. I'm not crazy about the sepia toning, though. Sepia is a great tool for shots that bring memories of days gone by, but I don't quite get how it adds to this shot.
