I hope this places in the top 50 at least. It's one of my favorite images, although this was a tough pick as I had so many that I just loved. Check out the rest of them:

Thank you to everyone for the great comments. I'm very proud of the finish and congratulate the 5 people ahead of me for their wonderful finishes as well.

A special thanks goes out to Setz as well... it's with his help that I've seen an improvement in my work.

Edit: Let me not forget to thank everyone else in this community as you all have been an integral part of my growth with everything I have learned since joining this site.

Especially good with the eye contact, though they are dark enough on my monitor that I may not have noticed if the title didn't say that. Perhaps that could be adjusted somewhat if other people see it as dark too.

This is a wonderful shot. Either the wheels have stopped turning, or you shot it at a millionth of a sec.

As much as this is not really the kind of shot that interests me, i have to say it is very well done. Great capture, technically good too.

I knew I would give this a 10 just by looking at the thumbnail! The clarity and detail along with the composition make this one fantastic image!

Outstanding shot! Were you lying on your back to take this? Great angle.

A Wow shot, a perfect 10, liked everything about it especially being able to see the eyes.

Great Composition of the cyclist and the bike. I'm wondering, based, on your title, it the amount of air time or negative space you used is necessary. Great capture, Timing and detail

Works like a charm! Nice angle, nice crop, and of course great capture of the moment! I'm sure you had fun reshooting this one over and over again... LOL! 8

Great shot, but I don't think all of the space at the bottom is really unnecessary.

Wonderful shot!

Very crisp, clear shot. You can see the eyes of the biker staring right at you while showing off. That makes this a particularly nice capture. The subtlety of the main subject at the top of the frame adds to the image. Nicely done!

Amazing......
If i must find something to critique: the back wheel is not perfectly sharp, and the sky is somewhat boring :-)
