Making an effort to return to AM3 after a bit of an absence, it's really nice to see photo's from all contributors and I will try to comment when I can. If I offer criticism I do so only to help and I do not wish to cause offence. My photography tends to be from my travels, as well as my passion which is wildlife and landscape. I hope you enjoy what you see.
Thanks for your comments I'm really grateful for them and welcome constructive feedback.

Mooie from Vancouver, Canada

This is very cool... is it an inversion?

24 Jul 2013 6:15am

@Mooie: It is, but the added bonus for me was the fence which really seems to add something to it

Joyce from United States

Love this magical other dimension look. Full of life, though only "just a shadow." It's also curious as to what and how that shadow got there. :-D

24 Jul 2013 2:03pm

@Joyce: Thanks Joyce. Shadows are never just shadows as I'm sure you know, every time we look at them they seem to have changed

Lena from San Francisco, United States

Denny Jump Photo from Easton, PA, United States

Makes me think of that song by Jim Morrison and The Doors but I can't recall the specific title - not like me....But this is a really intriguing shot, Doug - really well done sir!

24 Jul 2013 8:40pm

@Denny Jump Photo: Now that is a complement to have reminded you of a track by the Doors (one of my alltime faviourite bands), but he wasn't a "rider on the storm". I'm glad you like it Denny

RBL from Oxford, United States

Very clever shot ... love the silhouette and textured pattern!

~~~Ann~~~ from Nelson, New Zealand

I love silhouettes and this one has a mysterious air, related not only to how you did this but also to do with the shape of the person and the relative sizes of bicycle and human.

25 Jul 2013 3:48am

Regina G. Santaella from Cancún, Mexico

Amazing. I love that this seems to be up-side-down but not quite. Very interesting and intriguing.
