    Arresting documentry image, that reflects the spirit of the Burning Man event. The wicker statue adds the necessary context. Very good technical execution.

    Suggestions:

    Try plaing with the colour channels to see if you could increase the tonal range a bit

    Perfect title for both the man and the "Burning Man" event!  I hope he had sunscreen!

    I like that this is in black and white and how the sun is reflected on his sunglasses.  It definitely shows sun and shade.

    This has so many things to enjoy.  The figure is perfectly posed for a story about light.  The light is highlighting his body beautifully, and with the head lifted we have the face, surrounded by the dark brim of the hat.  Perfect.  The deep depth of field lets us get a sense of the location and interest in the background, including the other bikes.  It is strong enough to balance the very strong subject in the foreground

    Suggestions:

    If the setting had allowed it, it would be good to see just a bit more of the handle of the bike.  It seems to be cut off at a slightly awkward place.  But, I was reaching to find that nit to pick.

    This compelling black and white image is terrific composition which has very good contrast,  tonal range, lighting and a terrific subject.  This was a excellent capture as the subject is pefectly at ease sunbathing au naturele looking upwards and turning away from the camera. The subject is perfectly placed on the left allowing the viewer to see the captivating structure in the background.  Very good depth of field as the photo is tack sharp front to back. The reflection of the sun in the mans sunglasses is an added bonus.
