Great shot that deserves a lot of green :)
Even the yellowish orange fits in with the Saint Patrick theme. Good dof to create that bg blur. Perhaps a pity that one hand is in mid-motion, would have been better either on the handlebars OR up and waving. Now it's a bit in between. Yet, this is a fine shot to celebrate Saint Patrick's.

Turning it into bl/w really makes this shot come alive. I think this is superior to your previous shot from more or less the same location.
Terrific composition with that lonely figure just so perfectly placed. I also like the noise and grainy effect here, resulting in a timeless picture. The lines on the sky are a bit weird, though. Are they meant to add a bit of surrealism to the scene? Fascinating, but strange...
My favourite detail, though, are the daffodils on the side of the road. They don't even need colour to shine here.
Great shot & have a fine weekend.
PS: I just noticed the "previous shot from more or less the same location", which I refered to, was by Jade's gran. ;)
