Greetings from the Critique Club!

I think this is a great photo. I love the vibrant color and the way the shot is set up with the biker coming from the bottom corner of the frame. I think this photo, although with no point of sharpness, is a very attention grabbing photo. Some might say this use of motion blur is ineffective because no one thing is without blur, but I disagree. I donít need to see the bikers face to know heís a biker, nor do I need to see the bike in focus; I know itís a bike. That said, there is a market for this photo and itís probably not a sports magazine. I think your audience is people more interested in color, shape and movement then photojournalism. So all that said, my opinion: I like this shot a lot. I generally donít like sports photography because itís often aesthetically boringóthis is not.

Keep up the great shots!

All the best!

I love this kind of photography!
The colors came out beautifuly, the motion blur gives this photo a great extreme feel.
The space in front of the rider is great and is moving on the rider's direction.
I just wish there was a little bit more space above the head. 8

must be going fast. I think this would work better for me if the background was less blurred.

slighly ineffective use of motion blur, but I still feel the action involved.

Great action with excellent background motion blur. I would like the subject itself to be less blurred since that would give the viewer something to focus on, but this is still a nice action photo.

just a bit too blurry for my taste. I would have had either the background or the biker in focus. With both out of focus, I think it looks like you should have used a tripod.

Love this shot but I think that the motion blur is slightly too much for the speed that a bicycle would travel at. Good luck its a great image none the less :0)
