Default Chillaxing on the side of the road

I haven't posted much on here anymore so I'll start again. This shot was taken earlier today with my buddy as the model. I shot this on the side of the road using an old vivitar 283 flash off camera on the side of me. This is my first time shooting in this style and I really enjoy it.
Shot with my K20D with a Sigma 10-20mm lens.

I know the horizon is off a little bit but I think its ok.

Great perspective and excellent use of light. The horizon does not bother me a bit (none of our East TN horizons are level!!) - it only seems to add to the dynamic of the photo.

Wow! Nice shot. I like the way the subject is spotlighted. The perspective is also ideal. Cool bike as well.

I like it!
Very nice shot in every way. I believe the horizon looks like it should.

Thanks everyone for the comments. I am glad that the horizon is not that big of a deal.
