@pascal: ...I don't know, but believe me, I looked :)
Very good composiiton and POW, I like the tones and the suggerences of the image.

5 Dec 2010 8:07am
A masterpiece of composition and light.
5 Dec 2010 8:10am
A very haunting image, great work!
5 Dec 2010 8:29am
With the POV you have chosen , the observer seems hidden and introduces himself the feeling of mystery. This is reinforced by the dark light and tones. Very well done !
5 Dec 2010 8:44am
Aww... deep emotion here - your photo first, a pure enchantment, Sharon, the tone, the softness, the depth of those woods (how i love the background's detailed delicacy), the compo in Black & Amber, one of my fav (again, yes ;) at your place, sincerly. Plus this quote is one of my fav too. Reminds me a zen saying about the fact the true miracle is not to walk on water/sea but on earth/ground... Thanks for the glorious beauty you share here, and have a soft/sweet sunday yourself.

6 Dec 2010 2:57pm
Sleepy hollow indeed. Beautiful, Sharon. Definitely filled with mystery, yet somehow tranquil at the same time.
6 Dec 2010 3:52pm
What are we looking at? At the mystery of the (visible) world or at the photographer's mood (albeit imagined) ?
6 Dec 2010 3:54pm
Perfect title for this moody trek.
6 Dec 2010 4:09pm

6 Dec 2010 7:44pm

simply great! the light an shadow, silouhette of cyclist, beautiful framing, great balance of high contrasts and details... I really like this one!
8 Dec 2010 8:14pm
The layers of the trees, background and foreground, cast this figure in the perfect 'Sleepy Hollow' setting !
Partly mystery, partly real, all dream-like. Magnificent.
8 Dec 2010 8:42pm
How kinetic ! I can see here, feel a very strong Tim Burton and Steven
Spielberg mood here... Spielberg for E.T and his famous scene with the
flying bicycle and Tim Burton for the wonderful feeling you deliver in the background with this very eyecatching and poetic glow/haze in the trees... how thrilling and fairy Sharon !
As a dreamer, I can say that you've made my day with this unbelievable shot.
9 Dec 2010 3:10pm
@Florence: Wow Florence, thank you so much! I'm so happy that you got these feelings from this shot as it was what I was trying to achieve. By adding the layer of texture I wanted to portray this as more than a (grey) ride through the fog :)
really stunning light, very moody image
9 Dec 2010 5:39pm
Wow, an awesome cinematic (Tim Burton) vibe to it, I love it. That must be Johnny Depp on the bike :)
9 Dec 2010 6:39pm
@Howard F.: Thanks Howard! If that was Johnny Depp on that bike, I guarantee you that this shot would not have happened, and I'd have an entirely different tale to tell.
It would not be beneath me to chase after him like a school girl ;-)
wonderful mood to this.
9 Dec 2010 9:03pm
