This is so amazing! I am getting motion sick, looking at this photo. It definitely leaves an impact on the viewer and shows the essence of bike riding, the joy of the speed!

Hard to take a photo and hold the bars at the same time. I'd have given you an extra point or two if you'd had the right hand visible.

Looks dangerous, particularly with one hand on the bars! Nice colours. Great dynamic effect!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/14/2008 07:19:13 PM
Wow...this picture really gives you the illusion of movement. Great effect.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This image brings over the feeling of speed more than any other photo I've ever seen. Fantastic.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/14/2008 02:22:52 PM
Great composition and shot... I love it. Great saturation and colour. Focus on the bike is a little soft. Always the most difficult part of doing these shots.

I really like the angle here
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/14/2008 09:43:50 AM
I can feel the movement.

05/14/2008 08:17:00 AM
I like this, would prefer to see the other hand on the bars, but then shooting the photo would be difficult
