Not much to say about this one. I did quite a bit with selective color/saturation and a little USM. I tried to keep the USM'ing to a minimum. Yes I know that there's a slight halo between the tires and the sky.

I would recommend cropping off about an inch or two from the bottom. Great stop action shot... I love it.

Very cool. Great capture. Definate top 10 here. With the lighting, getting the face must have been hard. Any fill flash or anything?

Very cool shot here! Great moment with Fisheye lens? I reckon you should crop the bottom (Those houses)... would make the guy looks higher on the sky. As i can see how high he is now.

At first I thought this was taken at the same place as "I See You" but obviously not. The is an attractive photo, but I ranked the other one higher because the rider was looking at the camera and the lighting is better.

Too much dead space at the bottom.

I think this is really good shot, but that it would benefit from cropping out the house.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

that darn wide angle curvature. I would have cropped the building & trees out out entirely. Then your imagination would provide how high the subject was. I would have cropped just above the jet contrail in the background, that gives enough brightness for the whole effect to work and left a little more above if it is existed.

Great capture here. The sunset adds so much to this shot.

Nice stopping of motion.

Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! Nice use of wide angle here! I wish I had a lens like that! ;-) I'm glad you kept part of the groud to give this more persective. Color saturation wasn't overdone. Just a beautiful shot! The crop might be just a little tight for me but that's personal not technical. :-) 9

Great use of negative space. The "fish-eyed" building and fence is a great frame of reference for the viewer, and accentuates the biker's feat. The peaceful sunset colors are beautiful, but aren't really consistent with the action of the photo, so I think the overall impact would be greater with a black and white image.

how many times have you heard 'crop out the houses lol.... excellent light and stop motion, kids are nuts these days LOL 9 well the more i look at it keep the houses and have a 10 lol

crop off the bottom - make him really fly!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I like this image a lot because of the time of day you took it. I might have cropped off everything below the tallest tree to make it look like the biker flew into heaven.

This is a wonderful catch and the sunset is nice. Did you use any fish eye lens or something? 10!

Nice capture,8 !

very impressive, expecially considering the low light conditions. the only thing that i would recommend is there is some haloing around the rider and the bike from over sharpening. even so, you still deserve a 10.
