 I don't usually like black and white photos, but when I do I prefer steezy riding and a long dust trail.

 I get stoked off this picture but will someone please tell me why so many shots have a big clump of dirt/rock/loam/twig/leaf/etc. in the foreground? It takes up half the picture! How is it that this works so well? Its a big blurry clump of junk? My eyes are lovin the whole pic but my brain is sayin why?!?

 I too am not a fan of "blurry thing in foreground". I guess it must be something you learn to appreciate in photography 101.
Can we have a creative or technical explanation for blurry rock/shrub? Ian? Anyone?

 Kind of a by product of stopping the lens down for low light, the 135mm focal length I was shooting at the time and the landscape of the trail.. I personally like the blur in the for ground to add to the separation. But to get it sharp you would need to shoot that lens at f22 with an ISO of 75 000 000 at that time of day. Wink

 This probably isn't the place for this kind of discussion but...That's the kind of thing I don't quite understand. what do you mean by separation? Separation of what and what? Excuse my ignorance in the photography area. btw - I love the picture, I'm just trying to figure out why/how it works so well with that blur. Maybe my problem is that I'm looking at it too logically and not artistically enough...

I think you made a joke at the end of your comment but I don't understand ISO enough to get it. So here is my complimentary "I don't really get it" awkward laugh - haha. Smile

 Do you mean having something in the foreground helps frame the entire shot? I get that it wouldn't be in focus and i like the shot.
But i know little about photography and am keen to know why the technique is used so often. Not specifically in this shot but sometimes when I look at a photo i see an out of focus tree or piece of bracken in the foreground I feel it does anything for the shot. Again I dont mean on this photo but sometime i dont get why its there.

 I don't know where all the hostility came from but I guess we can just drop this topic. The photo is rad and I guess that's all that needs to be said. sheesh... Can't a guy ask a few questions around here? I guess I should stick to the usual pb comments like "BRAAP" or witty one-liners. Props to the photographer and rider.

 I think the mound does a great job at creating perspective in the shot. Also, it makes it really ambiguous where the trail is heading, which I like. Nice work holmesslice

 It's to achieve the 'Third' rule, in photography you use thirds to create your image. People will tend to steer clear of placing the subject in the very middle of the frame, they'll either use right or left hand side and place 2 things on the other side, negative space (a plain background, black night sky, blue day sky, white clouds etc..) or they'll place something else, like you've mentioned a shrub/twig/tree/etc.. and the reason for putting it out of focus is to create a better focus on the subject, so that it 'pops' out of the photo, instead of blending in with it all and getting lost.

Hope that somewhat clears it up Smile

 It is the rule of thirds that takes your eye so easily to the subject. Nice Shot Brad Holmes you have been killing the shots lately.
