Thanks for all your nice comments.

The challenge description says: "Use perspective to create a dramatic effect with your photograph." (added underline).

I know this image is not as strong as others in the front page in terms of its artistic value , but I think it conveys a fair amount of drama :-)

Awesome photo Alfredo. The exposure/lighting is just spot on and the comp works very well with the image. The way the jump is not in the image really adds the drama that this challenge was asking for. I am sorry this didn't make the fonrt page as it should have, but rest assured it is still one of the best in the challenge. Congrats on the top 10!

What a surprise that 1) you did not ribbon and 2) my own entry did better than your most amazing picture!

I think this shot should have been a top ribbon. The subject totally fits the challenge description. Definitely one of the best shots in this challenge!

That is freaking awesome! What an amazing capture. He looks so calm and non-chalant, which makes it even more interesting.

Congratulations on 7th place.

very nice capture and perspective

A very cool perspective. Hope he didn't land on you. Might have had some more impact if the lower part of the shot was not so busy. I would have straightened the building on the left, but I suspect others will feel it enhances the feel of the image. If it were angled but not curved,(like the one on the right) I think that would work better. a slightly different angle, placing the biker in the sky and not partially in front of the building would have also helped. (But, hew, these shots happen how they happen, you can't do much staging of something like this)
