This is great. The color, the pose, the contrast between the two amigos, the bike in the foreground. If I could make any suggestion at all, it would be to crop off the white stripe on the top left. I find it distracting because it attracts the eye. Nonetheless, this is terrific.

At first I thought the image was a bit unbalanced. But then I noticed the guy on the tractor reflected in the window. The colors are great as is the contrast between the guy on the left (no shirt, a couple of too many cervezas') and his buddy. What catches my eye though it that the handlebar of the bike is a little too close to the middle guys head. But that is a rather minor point. Good capture overall.

I like this, Jim! Great colors and a humorous and friendly mood. One guy too fat, one too thin, and then of course, the one in the reflection. Very nice!

Hugh Hill
Jim this is a great shot!

The Odd Couple For such a simple picture there is a lot going on here. I like the mysterious man on the tractor in the window. I think that the handlebars actually create a bit of a frame of the two guys and creates a separation of them and the guy on the tractor. Nicely done

Niels Christian Roe
