Nice use of the DrAchoo purple sky. Congrats on the red!

Honestly, this composition really doesn't do anything for me. The placement of the bike in the frame is stagnant and the subtle clouds lead the viewer right off the frame. Yes it has pretty colors but I think that's about it. :(

Great sillouette, maybe a little more happening around it would spice this up.

Very nice photo. I love how the clouds pull even more attention to the bicycle. The silhouette of the bike is the obvious focus here even though it isnt centered in the frame, very nice.

Awesome background color of sky...Fantastic
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/14/2008 12:18:05 PM
Very good execution. I feel that composition could have been better, with little cropping on right and probably some more elements in the silhouette ??
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/14/2008 10:18:39 AM
I like the color of the sky, but the bike looks a little strange just sitting there

Beautiful use of colors & lights. I think cropping bottom part a bit more may have even looked better.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/14/2008 12:37:02 AM
Oh, wow! I don't care for the unnatural, highly adjusted purple sky, but it's still an awesome shot that conveys the lure of bicycle touring.
