The lighting is to bright, the subject is some what lacking. Sorry.

Wasn't sure what I was looking at the first time. Too bad ther wasn't more of the bike frame remaining. In my humble opinion, a lower angle to the track to create a distance of travel would make a bit of an improvement.

Sometimes a theme invokes a different idea or concept and this is clearly one of those images which meet the challenge subject in completely different fashion than one might normally expect. A great idea which falls short of perfection. The overally flat tones and color detracts from the subject's impact. The DOF control is sound and effective. If this image could have been tone mapped, it would have helped tremendously and probably would have been a ribbon contender. A good solid entry into the challenge.

I'm not sure what this is, but it got owned by a train I think :) Wait - is that a bicycle wheel and gear?! Ouch. The subject is cool and I had fun trying to figure out what it is, but the tracks being so much brighter than the subject is a bit distracting.
