To be honest I was pretty happy with the original version but I felt it lacked impact. The two elements (rider and sun) seemed to compete for attention. My goal when capturing this picture was to keep everything as simple as possible, which is why I only included the sun and sky without the ramp or any ground area. So I finally decided to enhance that goal even more with my final edit by combining the two elements. The hardest part was getting the colors inside the wheels to match the surrounding sky. That was definitely a challenge!
