One should be careful using a polarizing filter. As Ben said, it can turn your sky black. It can also over-saturate colors, causing then to become too dark, and can alter the colors. And, depending on the quality of the filter, it can reduce the crispness of the resulting image. I noted that my Hoya circular polarizer did reduce slightly the sharpness of the details on the motorcycle, such as the BMW roundel, and tends to make everything slightly greener. Perhaps I need a higher quality filter.
I'd call this one stunning and/or beautiful. Very nice. It has a timeless feel to it.

What direction is the camera facing? East? I'm trying to envision this same shot taken during the golden hour.
