Was shooting my friend when I saw this girl... Asked the parents if I could take a couple of picture of her, cycling. She only drove 1 time and I was lucky enough to get this shot. I know it's not one of my sharpest pictures, but that's just the way it is.

Nice motion-panning - I never manage to pull this sort of shot off. If I'm any judge your lower voted came from people who haven't tried this.

This is very nice, probably should of scored higher. In regards to your comments, this shouldn't be sharp. In fact it is the lack of sharpness that really makes the photo.

I hope she's got some brakes on that bike!! You really do get a sense of speed with this photo, brill.

nice take on the challenge. it could stand to have been just a bit sharper, in my opinion.

Love the tilt & composition. Made a 'ordinary' picture fun.

I don't care for the heavy boarder on the top & bottom. Nice capture though.

Tilted perspective adds something to this image. Gives it the feel of speed, going downhill. Motion tracking was a bit off, leaving subject blurry like camera shake. Great finishing work and clarity/cleanness of picture.

Faved this the first day right after rollover. I tried this hot a coupe of times too (and in the rain) but it didnt come out as nice as yours. Great composition and angle. Bumping up to 9 - for now.

LOL, this looks like she is going fast! Funny!

I really like the down hill slant it makes her look like she is really cooking on that little bike.

Why the "letterbox"-style frame?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/17/2007 04:15:26 PM
There's some kind of odd optical illusion going on when I look at this that makes the border at the bottom look slanted when it's actually straight. odd.

Good panning.

Fun pic - I like it. Seeing her face would have added to the shot.

Very nice! I wish I could see the girl's face, but other wise a very nice photo. I like the angle and the well-done motion panning.

I love how fast this implies shes going; makes me want a bike like that!

I like the composition of this photo- the diagonals make it very dynamic. The color pink adds to the fun. I wish I could see more of the face and maybe it is a tad too dark (?)

Don't like the frame, think the image would have been fabulous on it's own.
