I said this same thing to the others in the top three, because it is totally true:
Yours was one of seven shots I voted high on and said I wouldn't have any regret being beaten by... there were a number of others I was beat by as well...lol... but yours I didn't mind! :")
Congrats!

WOW... Thanks for great comments!!!
I cant descripe how happy i´am!
Thanks to my good friend Patrik and his 9 years experience to make this posssible!
The tailwhip was just one of many tricks he did for me. He also did the No-footedcancan,Nothing,cowboy,canadian nosepick and more...
I´m gonna put some of those photos in my portifolio in the next days when i´m home.

Thanks again......

Terrific silhouette, congrats on your ribbon! Thinking how 20 years ago people weren't doing that with their bikes, and how the shot would have been perceived. Of course that goes for all the extreme sports!

This is stellar.. curious how the bottom of the back wheel is blurred -- was it on post-processing or did it originally come out like that? I think it adds a nice effect to the extremeness of it.

This is really strong. We don't see a lot of true high contrast work in here, and this stans out wonderfully. certainly, it's extreme action.

Just for calidation I'm bumping this one up!
Great catch and I love the silhouette against those dramatic sky!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/15/2005 08:00:17 AM
love this! Works for me. Not too sure I would have been standing underneath him - probably why you got this shot and I didn't - not that mine would be anywhere as well done! 10 from me.

absolutely gorgeous shot. the silhouette is perfect, and i love the way it gains detail on the rear wheel. a very strong contender. (9)

cool. i hope people like this one as much as I do. sometimes when photos have to be validated, people seemingly penalize it for some reason. good luck.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/13/2005 05:01:07 PM
Excellent, love the contrast, composition and overall shot. The only thing thats bugging me is there's no 2nd foot peg on the front wheel, even if you haven't removed it by editing, people are gonna think you have! 9

This looks like a winner to me! If the back end of the back wheel had been a tad sharper, would've been perfect!

A fine work of art. This is levels work to perfection.

i had the same problem with the sky
personally i really would have preferred the background to be a totally white field
but the silouettes and composition is absolutely super
well done!!
