Bonus points because I really like your choice of subject. Bokeh works well, too.

Nice subject and conveyed a great idea. Composition is pretty good. I just wish there was slightly more contrast or interest along the sides of picture. Maybe you could up contrast and crop to be more portrait instead of landscape.

Well done.

Outstanding shot... nice use of bokeh
06/24/2006 05:25:10 PM
I like this one!

Highlights look slightly overblown and I would prefer a tiny crop at the top to get rid of the darker bokeh which doesn't add to it. Overall like the shot.

Very nice take on this challenge. My only suggestion would be a little contrast bump.

Great use of the "rule of thirds" in this composition.....

finally, no flowers.

comp but cutting the wheels off of the athlete makes him look disconnected, great movement and the blue sign on right could of been cropped out making the bg cleaner, nice lines, light nice, color ok, great txture, great emotinonal value,

This looks like it would be perfect for front page of a newspaper! Great Capture!

Wow, this is excellent. Love the intensity.

One of the best in the challenge. Lovely action. 9.

Great capture, meets the challenge well. My only suggestion is that I would have not cropped the bottom of the bike out.
06/21/2006 10:21:56 AM
ooh good one!
06/21/2006 07:00:26 AM
I like it but I can't see why the wheel was cut off at the bottom...great shot
06/21/2006 04:22:18 AM
i like it =)
06/21/2006 02:04:22 AM
Like it! Even meets challenge very well: "... take a photograph whose subject is enhanced by the bokeh of the background.". Enhanced, oh yeah!

Beautiful photo. Finally nice bokey on non-macro shot. Hope this does well. Goodluck.9.
