    The photo is really dark. REALLY dark. I'd say the subject needs some fill flash imo imho tbqh.

    Thanks, only problem is that if i used a flash my camera will only sync to a certain speed. Therefore the subject would appear blurry. So i had to opt for a darker picture instead

    The photo info says that you used ISO 200, it might have helped to go to 400 on this shot.

    To me, it's somewhat confusing... on my monitor it's almost a silhouette and it looks like he's racing a wheelchair with handlebars downhill because the form of the bike is lacking depth and I expect the front wheel to be off the ground, not the back wheel. So my mind wants to make both wheels parallel and one is just larger than the other. I realize this is not the case, but I can see it either way.

    I see the same thing.

    Yep, it's too dark... needs more ISO.

    Sorry about the light guys, next time i'll try and get it better.

    Bazooka i understand why it's probably confusing as he is doing a trick over the ground where you try and get the bike as sidewards as possible.
    Thanks for all your comments though

    Not exactly, the flash freezes motion. A typical "flash" only lasts about 1/1000th of a second.

    I do like your picture though, dark or not. The warm light on the path is really nice looking.

    When i use a flash though i am forced to use no more than 1/160th of a second though. Most pictures of bikers that i take are then blurred whereas this picture was taken at 1/500th of a second. Thanks for your comment though.

    Great shot. I love the lighting on it too. And I'm pretty sure the guy on the bike wiped out right after the picture.
