    Which one do you like? I could also use any c&c, so feel free. I know the light on his back is a little bit hot, but other than that, I like this shot.

    I think that color could definitely work better for this one, but the processing seems a little strange, mainly the foilage in the foreground. So for this one color, but B&W could work better. Another edit maybe?

    Also, is that a Hasselblad in your avatar?

    This picture seems really odd to me. I don't understand what story it's trying to portray.

    Color is better. The editing for the B&W is a bit weird looking.

    I would have liked the B&W more if the bike didn't blend in so much..

    I don't get the smoke though?

    The first one is almost strait out of the camera except for a crop, and i air brushed some of the black.

    and yes that is a hasselblad lol :)

    i wasn't trying to portray anything really i just thought it would look cool. thats what what i saw in my minds eye haha.

    its not smoke, the thing he's breaking on the bike is a log halogen light bulb the first time he broke it my lights misfired, he then had this long chunk of it left in his hand so i asked him to break that, the stuff trailing the light is dust that was inside of the bulb.

    ne other comments?

    I like the color one better.
    On another note, if you do this again, I would get him to put on some leather gloves, i've seen those things break into a miilion pieces before. I'd hate to see your subject end up in the ER.
