To use your form of critique (which we've already established how much I like!):
+ B/w tones exceptional for this image, balance for the subjects spot on, good story (you wonder where are the owners of the bikes), 3D quality to it, moody and evocative
- Can't find a darn thing wrong with it Shuva

This one has a great range of tones especially in B&W. I like the big tree against the cloudy sky and the bikes add a nice subject. My only complaint would be a bit of a halo around the tree. Lately instead of pure HDR I've been hand combining images using layers and brush. I will export two versions from RAW file from lightroom and usually put the lighter one on top of a darker one so I can paint in details. This gives more control than photomatix type programs and can help keep halo effect down Although for this tree you have a lot of little pieces so it would be very time consuming!

@Jason Kravitz: Thanks for the tip. I have tried one last evening, but selecting the finer angles requires lots of patience. My Monday's post is a result of this, but I did not like the overall result so much. You can see the imperfection on the horizon.

zoloper from Bucuresti, Romania

this is nice .. the use of b/w really helps in here ;)
one problem.. i don't like that the shelter is over the view of the large tree. it's hard to distinct them

@zoloper: You are right about this. It sure is a bit of a distraction. I should have moved to the left or the right a bit.
