Look out, it's a (hopefully) dramatic jump in quality! This one took most of a day to get into posting quality, and there are some things I regret (lack of tightness of bike shorts, etc.), but as a whole, I'm satisfied with this. Accidentally experimented with overlay layers and BOY did that make this image cooler for me.
