    Strong subject with the sole rider completely upside down, certainly makes one look twice at the scene.
    Suggestions:
    No suggestions to make.

    Really fun and an amazing catch, cropped to perfection. Zooms right in on the action, a swift moment beautifully frozen in time. Great focus and rich colours really bring it out. Nice work!

    I love this image the perspective is fantastic. Very sharp and well exposed. The grey background really works to pop all the colours of the ride.
    Suggestions:
    It would have been nice if the arc of lights wasn't cropped at the top and the motor could have been cloned out of the shot but these are minor suggestions.

    A thrilling and happy moment to capture, particularly as the subject appears to be enjoying the moment alone; the subject's face is nicely lit. A very nice interpretation of the theme... Nancy
    Suggestions:
    It appears that the some editing was done to significantly lift the shadows of the ride against a bring sky. There is a nice balance of light, but the haloing is a bit attention grabbing. Perhaps let the sky be a bit brighter to lessen the impact.

    I like the depth of the greys in this image. Nicely focused shot.

    I like the perspective of this shot, the tittle works great.
    Suggestions:
    I see some clear demarcations where the picture was dodged or burned, I find it distracting.
    Response:
    No dodging or burning. However, I did use a filter to give the sky a greyish tone. The natural blue sky was too intense in my opinion. I did not notice the haloing until I submitted the photo. Something I have to watch in future.
