Walking the dogs I've seen this bike in the back bayou.

This is a really interesting shot. I had to look at it a bit to figure it out. It's all in the reflection.

What a clever title for a very cool image :-)

I thought this was a really nice image! I hope the rider is OK.

I like the idea and nice job capturing the reflection in the water.

Excellent. I hope that never happens to my bike.

did you try a polarization filter? would have shown much more details of the bike and less of the reflection

Wetbike?? Interesting, but the reflection of the tree confuses things maybe a little too much

This photo has some real interest all that rust really adds some character. The rust also shows that this was a find, and not just thrown in the water for a photo. I like found photos so much more that staged photos. I don't like the tree reflections though, for me I find them too much of a distraction from the good stuff.

Good looking shot, although the reflections perhaps overpower the bike imo.

I like this a lot, my first impression in the thumbnail was there was a mini-football style helmet (which turned out to be the pedal of course...)

With the rust on the spokes, I'm thinking this was not a setup shot, which means that someone was very observant (and may have a much better memory than I do...) and used two images (not two separate pictures), that when combined give a sense of place and time that either by itself would make an interesting but not compelling picture.

excellent find! I think, if you shoot this with a polarizer (to decrease the reflection in water), you could get a much stronger image of a bicycle.
