As a professional cycling photographer, nice job on this image, it is a hard one to nail focus, being backlit and with all the water drops. The bike is a bit out of frame, and maybe too much in the upper right-hand corner. For these I usually shoot in multi-frame mode trying to capture the rider and sun in the best position (usually shining through the body, or just before or after the sun, sometimes blocking it). I also like to separate the rider from the background depending on the shot. It would have been interesting to get a lower angle and have the rider separated from the background and silhouetted. All depends if you had time to prepare, etc., of course. Great job!

Thank you Jeff for your comment. Yes I agree with you about the framing of the bike, I shoted multi-frame and I liked this one the most because of the water droplets. I have another one where the bike is more into frame but a little bit to the center, I will upload it so I can receive your professional advice. Thanks!
