note, that the shot, that looks like just BTS, is actually in the magazine. Looks good and funny there :] actually it was intended to mask the guy with the umbrella out, but editor picked this one.

also I am glad, that was picked the "window image".

I have more, but they are more generic.

I think I'd have picked (cut) those 4 weeds in front of his body before shooting.

Not to second-guess the editor, I first noticed the cycling guy. An instant later, my eye was drawn to the black "thing". I spent a moment trying to figure out that it was an umbrella. Then I noticed the partial head behind it. From a photographic viewpoint, I don't think the goal is to have the viewer distracted from the subject. The editor clearly had another goal.

As for the other one, why the partial doors at the bottom?

Man you have some quirky images. My first response is usually wtf? But then I usually settle into "that is just weird enough to be cool". You managed consistency here in that respect. Not shots I would have immediately picked.... but in the end... it was... hey... that's kinda cool. Screw the rules... say something. If I were doing a piece on "a day in the life" of this cyclist, I can see how these would work. Any critique I would give would be about obeying the rules... which really doesn't apply here. Keep at it!

Its by knowing and mastering all the rules that you learn which ones you can break.

Really like the window shot. Seems to tell the story of the daily "routine"; grab the bike, head down the hall, down the stairs and out the door.
