This is quite cool, the way the cyclist starts to morph into the blurred surroundings. Nice use of color to make the subject stand out, too.

I like this. Its a cliche shot but with a twist, one that works very well. I like the touches of red - they really force the focus of the viewer in a monochromatic world, which gives the image a little more depth. Fits the challenge. good capture. 7 bump to 9

Great panning shot...I suppose in some communities people might think this is a missed focus, but I have a feeling here people are voteing down because for this type of shot it is very nicely sharp. Good shot regardless.

I like the simplicity of composition and minimal detail which work well with the appropriately oof subject.

I really like this shot, but it appears to be only motion blur. A quick looks shows me sharp detail on the cyclists arm and the brake lever. This is in focus. I hate to have to give this one a low vote, but I cannot in good faith give it the high vote that I would if the topic included motion blur. A rare combination of a low vote and a fave.

Nice way to use the out of focus elements to capture motion. Well done.

This works for me. I really like the crispness of it - clean, sharp color. I suppose one could argue this misses the point of the challenge since you did manage to get focus on the cyclist pretty nicely, but like I said, it works for me.

Him wearing a red shirt with a red bike, really works well together. I might've brightened up the white background a smidge for better contrast. 7

I like this shot, great blur and movement! But the image is in focus.
