I'm new so take what I say with a grain of salt.

I would have like to see more detail on the bike. It's a little dark for my taste.

Other than that good shot.

Try again. Get the bike off the kickstand, get closer, get some light on the subject and the bike. Watch your background and avoid horizontal lines intersecting the subjects head or distracting things in focus in the background.

bike lacks details - I think even brushwork would do the trick there.

composition wise - would be better to take notice the buildings in the background and compo with them also.

kickstand - now that's just lame ;) [nothing personal, but it is lame]

Thanks for the feed back but why do you say it looks like a snap shot?

Well, I would say that because there's a building growing out of his head, the bike is framed too far to the left, & the bike doesn't look good at all in that light? I don't think you needed that much empty sky at the top, either, so maybe frame in closer next time.
