Pelle - Nice photo. Maybe you should critique my work. Its a very nice photo. There are a couple things that really make it stand out to me. The length of the shadow is great, very symbolic of the end of the day. And I really like the contours of the sand. That it shows no sky is really cool. I think overall for the shot, it probably helped the EV. There are a couple of "warmer" spots on the road, but nothing really hot. The only suggestion I could possibly offer would be to crop it in a little tighter, but just to make the photo a little longer. I don't think it needs it at all. You did really well with this. Congrats on a great shot. Sorry I have nothing to offer. If you take some suckier photos, I can probably help more with those. Keep up the good work - Bob

Great capture. I love the light and shadow, as well as the empty space of the sand.

It could work for an emotive poster.

Great, simple lines and colors. Really focuses the subject. Wish the sand was as sharp as the path and biker.
