The photo is boring, except the fact that it looks like he's jumping down the mountain for his death.
In General what ruined it for me is the composition (boring angle).

I see what you were aiming for alxgt..I think the idea has potential.
Having him center of the shot kinda draws everything right to him.

I think I know what your trying to do, i try the same with my brother on his MTB but i usually take the shot from in front of the subject and it looks alot better. But its a good idea anyway. :)

It would be great for the proposed 'defying gravity' assignment task. I like the pic.

Re the criticism... How would you have framed the shot instead?

Or perhaps just a crop of your original (hope you do not mind).

cropping out the foreground and only showing the guy in the air with the mountain in the background would also work better

dp-paris's image is what i mean...looks better to me :P

The angle is boring,yes. DP's crop is perfect. :) Now it looks very nice.
Some b&w conversion & editing would make this photo really powerful. Now it's still a bit boring,due to the colors.

If we could have seen his face the photograph would be a lot more interesting, and the angle of this shot is plane boring as previously stated!

Thanks for sharing :)
