Jim,

Thanks for noticing how I painstakingly took all of those elements into consideration as the cyclists came charging toward Me, cleverly holding My nerve and waiting until just the right moment to snap the shot for optimum results. . . . OR, it was just dumb luck that the image turned out so great! (GRIN)

Great usage of contrasting colors in combo with compositional "action" plus inclusion of emotion as depiction. See contrast of mouth gestures. Teeth vs. grimmace. Blue in background Warm orange in foreground. Compositional opposites of foot position. Green bkground contrasts and enhances orange foreground.
It is a good thing that you considered all of these elements as you clicked asap! =)
Nice shot!
