Great capture! I love the energy in this image. Fits the challenge of course and the focus is pretty good.

Subject helps create interest which draws my attention into the photo and the composition works very well for me. The title helps enhance the imagery of the biker against clouds too.

Use of natural light is decent, the one thing I do notice though is the sky seems fairly washed out and and undramatic.

Maybe using a polorizing filter could help really bring that blue sky out and add a bit of shadow and definition to the clouds. I think that might help tie the blue of the biker's bike & pants in and add an bit of pop to the image. I'm torn on whether the image needs more sharpening or not. I kind of like the looseness of the clouds compared to the angular feel of the biker, plus additional sharpening may create more haloing around the bike's tires. Its a toss up.

Overall a nice high energy shot with a great idea behind it. There are some things that might have improved the shot but its a solid entry in my book. I gave a 5

Nice capture. Needs some post processing. Add more contrast (curves), lighten up his face, saturate the blue a little, burn the clouds for more drama. Good shot.

Wow. Double Wow. When I grow up, can I take pictures like these?

If you don't get your feet back on the pegs, it will be "Learning to Die" or at least "Learning to CRY!" ;-) Nice shot!

Interesting shot. The color depth on the bike and rider is a little shallow though.

great capture. I'd like to see this with some more processing to really make the sky pop. The clouds are a great background. 8

Odd how the bike doesn't have the contrast that the rider does.
