ISO: 100, Shutter speed: 1/100, Aperture: f/5.6,
Camera: Canon EOS 20D, Flash: None, Cropping: 16:9,
Lens: Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L, Focal length: 35mm,
Captured: 29th May 2006, 8:02pm,

I spent ages messing with this in Photoshop and couldn't get the colouring quite how I wanted. then, just before I went to save it I thought I'd quickly see what it looked like in black and white.

One contrast-increasing S-curve later and it was done. Sometimes it's best to keep it simple.

The only thing that bothers me about this shot is the bikers head being so dark. Other than that I like it. It's great how the shadow appears much sharper than the bmx dude.

Looks great in B&W, the shadows are spot on.

I think this is a great piece on it's own. I'm not sure there are rules for images like this. Nice one Jamey.

Ooh purdy. Looks fitting for a bmx mag. Send it in :)

I quite like the "anonymous" face. Kids all look the same anyway nowadays. Why in my day... Great shadow.

Perhaps the shadow just on its own as an imagemight have worked as well Jamey? Good image though and glad to see the use of black n white as opposed to brown hues... ;-)

The shadow might work on its own but I already cropped a fair amount to get down to this dhot. If I did the shadow on its own, the hi-res would hardly be any bigger than the version I'd be posting up here.

really like it, can't imagine this sort of grit working in colour ;) and I love the shadow (like others have said

wow! very nice capture, the light is great casting that shadow on the wall behind.

Difficult choice, I like both, a lot. Perhaps this one is more symmetric, more accomplished.

Great action shot! I like the way you process your colour shots, but I think you're right this one works really well in black/white. Great composition too.
