Hi Mike, after reading your about page decided to give some feedback on this photo.
I feel this one would work better in b&w than your other one. My reason for saying this is I feel with a slight crop across the top to remove the light in the top left, (I find it distracting), the composition is better because the cyclist is more easily seen.

Hi Mike

Thank you for comment, great to have such feedback. This photo, like most I take, was opportunistic, I try to have my camera with me at all times ready to capture whatever presents itself. As I was passing the local railway station just such an opportunity came up, a dramatic sunset over the Kennet valley, so I took the opportunity. On the way to catch the available light i noticed the cyclist coming up and over the bridge and just had time to prepare as he came down on my side…

I take your comments to heart and will try a different crop and B&W conversion to see how it looks. Thanks for taking the time to comment, it is much appreciated!
