I understand the voting. I think it is the great sense of movement in the shot that earned you the ribbon. That is what made me give a high score.

Visually straining (in a good way) so as to force the viewer to focus on the intended subject. It feels like my eyes are crossing when I attempt to focus on the background! :)

Speaking of the background - it seems so well captured as a blur that it looks very 3D, as if it's 30 layers back/deep. It also looks as though it's several shots superimposed on one another and then layered under the subject. Quite complex.

Awesome; I love this shot!
Well deserved ribbon - congrat's!

Whoa! I'm glad you were wrong. I would have been really disappointed in the voters if they had voted this one low. It is amazing.

Congratulations on your ribbon! This is really great!

i totally loved this shot. the cyclist looks like he's going that fast that the colour from his clothes is seeping out behind. well deserved.

I absolutely love the colors, motion blur, dark tones, and what makes this picture the winner for me is the fact that the second cyclist and bike are symmetrically included so as to aid the main cyclist but so as not to become a distraction. Lucky you! YOU ARE MY WINNER FOR THIS CHALLENGE!!!

Burning seems splotchy. Like the contrast and saturation.

A tired face, a very good realization; a beautiful shot
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/16/2007 06:34:22 AM
Good shot! Looks like more than basic editing, though?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/15/2007 08:22:42 PM
Almost great. It would have been a lot better if you could see the second riders head. I love the motion blur.

good motion panning. what happened with the back wheel of his bike?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/14/2007 08:19:15 PM
this is excellent - the only ting I could improve is make it more horizontal. The colors and movement compliment the excellent subject.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/13/2007 09:55:30 AM
Great shot... so good in fact that it doesn't even look like a "basic" editing shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/13/2007 05:23:20 AM
Powerful shot! amazing colours and great speed. The only way i can see to improve it is that the front wheel is cropped out and i don't feel it should be. 9! : - )

My favourite one, sure ribbon. The colours, the background effect, the biker expression... I do like it.
